And not too sure if it would be appreciated by kids as my little one always turns his face off to the sight of kappa.

Step 16


As a matter of fact, Kappa is one of a kind that is extremely popular globally too and holds a rather predominant place in Kerala households particularly among the poorathough nowadays highly preferred by rich tooa.Thankfully, taste buds do not have class and discrimination as many of the human minds do.

Step 17


Speaking of such discrimination, actually, it is extremely disheartening to see the existence of such hard-core racial and class discrimination even today in the 21st century and I think its¦ high time we eradicated the word (Inequality÷ from this planet. So guys, as a first step, look around, reach out for the downtrodden, treat them as equals, help them in every possible way and bring big smiles to their facesa just like the ones this kappa ularthu is gonna bring to yours!!! and that shud be something like this.

Step 18


So, on that note, happy cooking!!!!
