Like the last two letters, my ‘O’ was finalized long ago and odappalu were my first and last choice for the letter. There aren’t any vegetables or food items starting with ‘O’ in Telugu, except odappalu. There […]

Laddu ~ Senagapindi (Besan) Laddu

For alphabet ‘L’, in this A-Z Challenge, Journey Through Telangana Cuisine, I could not come up with anything other than Laddu.

Morning Glory Muffins

Last spring when I visited one of my cousin’s I borrowed couple of cookbooks from her.
