This recipe has been given by one of my friends, who is actually from Bangalore. I asked her once whether it is a Karnataka special or  Andra special,  her  mother  is a  kannadiga  and her father  is  a  Telugu, but she said this particular dish is her mother’s favourite. I tried it once and it came out well and somehow i liked its fresh Coriander Leaves flavour and it became one of my favourties
