Inji Puli - Puli Inji Curry Recipe - Sadhya Recipes

Inji Puli Recipe
 Puli inji is a popular condiment of Kerala which is prepared during festivals and weddings and no feast is complete without it.  It is prepared with fresh ginger and is a combination of sweet, sour,'s my favorite.  It is usually prepared the before day of feast and will be perfect by the next day to serve. Yummy to go with curd rice...
