  1. my parents are from tirunelveli as well (Karaikuruchi) and I am biased towards tirunelveli food and people. I prepare most of the items you've featured and reminds me of my mom's recipes. Now that my mother is no more, I refer to your site for any doubts that I may have, especially the pakshanams. thanks a lot and keep up the good work for benefit of brahmins and tirunelveli-ites!!!
