Kaakarakaya Pulusu

Ananthapur Special Kaakarakaaya Pulusu
அனந்தப்பூர் ஸ்பெஷல் காகரக்காயா புலுசு

This is a special dish from Ananthapur of Rayalaseema, Andrapradesh. Kaakarakaaya is nothing but our Pagarkkai (Bitter-Gourd), which is a semi gravy recipe. Normally Pulusu would be watery. But the speciality of this Kaakarakaya Pulusu of Ananthapur would be Semi-Gravy, which goes very yummy with boiled rice or as a side dish too. Since this contains Garlic, Ginger and Onion as main ingredients, those who dont like can stay away. I got this recipe from one of my friend from Andhra Pradesh on phone today and just posting it. Will make video and post in due course of time. Meanwhile, please try this special recipe and let us have your feedback.
