Coriander Uttappam With Ridge Gourd Sambar

Coriander Uttappam With Ridge Gourd Sambar
I was just going tru some old albums in my laptop-cherishing the good days we both had before my son was born. I came across of us with my BIL and SIL having dinner at Aachi Mess near the Power House in Vada Kovai (our hometown in India). They served variety of doas and rice items which are simply delicious especially their Cashew Rice and Coriander Uttappam. Whenever we pass that street sure to visit and have these items. We just eat them guiltylessly even if we were told to be back home for lunch or dinner.Simply just addicted to their wide range of home cooked dishes. I got the urge to try their Uttappam very badly but I cannot go there to have them rite-decide to make them for dinner with ridge-gourd sambar..It was really good-and we both felt very happy.
