Its been chicken for sometime for a little change of taste I made SOYA MATE PIRATHAL as a sidedish for SOTHI@ a gravy that looks like morkulumbu but using coconut milk instead of buttermilk. I love sothi for its mild taste. My sons will drink it like they too will eat without any complaint when it's a sothi day...:-)

I'll post the recipe for SOTHI by my mum later ok. She either makes it plain or adds in some vegetables. Both versions always taste good to me!!

I'm linking this recipe to Pari's event Cook with Soyabean
