I learnt this from my younger sister in law Jayanthi, Toronto. She only introduce this to my daughter during her visit to India when my daughter was 3 yrs. My daughter loves to eat even it alone without any main course Its goes with all sambar or rasam rice. Even nice to have with white rice as a kova kai rice. Kovai kai is fully iron rich vegetable. .
