Hi Vineela,

Thanks for the comment, fresh vi doraka pothe no problem if u can get frozen is also good for this dish, I even make this with mixing frozen surti papdi and surti papdi lilva, the different between making fresh and frozen is fresh one have to be boiled first, frozen ones don't need to be boiled.

adi pachi meerapakaay pappu.

enjoy cooking:)
