Branded as a Malayalee favorite, Ulli Theeyal is included in Sadhyas. No Sadhya is ever complete without theeyal dish. Kerala is a land of coconuts and you will find the dish quite popular in almost all Malayalee homes. It is roasted coconut mixture that imparts the distinct flavor to the mouth watering dish. It is the spicy tangy flavor enriched with the aroma of fried coconut that makes the dish unique and special. Sharing a simplified version of the dish, well illustrated in simple meaningful sentences. Even bachelors as well as new comers can give a bold try.
