I know a few recipes with valaipoo. Vada, Usili, Kuzhambu, Podimas and Poriyal. Vada and Poriyal are my choice, anytime. This week when I picked it from the market, I was really happy. It has been quite a long time since I had it. It is very simple to make poriyal. You can clean and store it valaipoo properly at night and make it in mornings or afternoons for lunch. I have added a ground coconut masala which adds more taste. Adding a dash of coconut oil at the end makes it more tasty. This poriyal will taste good with sambar, pulissery or rasam.
