I fell in love with this the very first time when tasted it in a marriage.i have heard my Amma say about this but don't know why I don't remember her making it... But my sweet cousin Bhuvana akka gave me the recipe once but I couldn't make it as it was hard for me to remove the skin :( Finally I made it once before marriage but after that, I guess this was the first time... Last yr I made it again... But did not have time to post it... So finally.... My favorite rasam/soup was able to make it ...
