How to reduce bitterness of  Vazhaipoo :

  • My granny used to say if you consume the cooked vazhaipoo with curd it reduces the pain during menstural cycle so mostly i prepare vazhaipoo poriyal and mix it with curd and consume it.At first i thought it would be difficult to eat but after consuming my thought was really wrong because curd  decreased the bitter flavor of the vazhaipoo and it was tasty to eat it too.And later on i included this to my lunch box without including any rice or roti as my tummy was full with this vazhaipoo poriyal + curd + apple :D.
