    I’ll have to try this, Raji.

    I made something similar with Gongura pickle a couple of weeks ago, but I did not like the result. The big difference was that I added the pickle before I pressure cooked, and the result had brought the inguva and the velulipayi too much to the front, and you couldn’t taste any of the pulupu from the gongura.

    I’ll try it again, this time adding it at the end.

    Thanks for the idea 🙂
