Chettinaad Koradda; a delicious n simple side dish


Korada the name striked me when i was browsing the web and it is completely new to me. With the tag Chettinad i assumed that it should be really tasty and a side dish recipe is always welcomed by a housewife as we tend to give new  menu and  always run out of ideas . This is  a relatively simple dish and the small onion presence in our house should always bring our in our minds this recipe. Yes it is  so easy and no grind recipe.
