Ulli Theeyal

Ulli theeyal is a onion based Kerala dish which is served with rice. Shallots cooked in a tangy coconut gravy with a beautiful curry leaf flavor. Actualy I made Undhiyu and puri for U but some how deleted the whole post by mistake. I tried to make the undhiyu recipe again but didn't get all the vegetables so I droped it. So I changed the recipe to Ulli theeyal. Here is the recipe U for Ulli Theeyal.
