    Fenugreek(Uluva/vendhayam) is a very important ingredient in Palakkad style inji puli… You can add fenugreek seeds after spluttering mustard or add add fenugreek powder (dry fry and powder) when inji puli boils..

    I used to prepare this traditional puli inchi but in this recipe salt is an ingredient, we can prepare with salt but it tastes more if we dont put salt.
