About this recipe

Till two days before, I never heard of this recipe name or anything about this. My friend gave me this recipe and asked me to make this and publish in my blog. She said it is an authentic and special recipe of a particular community of Telugu speaking people and they make this recipe often as break fast. The very next day I made this and we were totally mesmerized by the taste, soft and melting texture of this Pappu Rotta. Thanks to my friend Meena for giving me such a wonderful, easy, different and healthy breakfast recipe...
