My mom prepare and give me in big bottle saying that Hema i prepared a lot for you especially for your hubby, it will sure come for another 15 to 20 days ma. I will get that one with a big smile on my face and my mind will say Ayo amma 15 to 20 days a... seri seri parthunde iru. Analum Ipadi oru emaliya irukiye!.... After a week or 10 days i ll call amma and say amma yr thokku was very tasty and its over.. can u tell me the recipe I m planning to make it now. Ha ha ha imagine how my mother could be on that side.
