3. Got em!

I knew it! I knew it! But I admit I didn't know which recipe it connected to so I read them all and learned A LOT thanks! (#3)

It's #3, a plethora! And I have almost all of them. Good day to make it. I've been making Kalyn's wonderful recipe. And, for many more, I bought Crescent Dragonwagon's new book yesterday -- pull out those jars and pots...


This might be my all time favorite ingredient!! Certainly in the top ten if I had to pick just ten things to cook with. Great photo!

3, and we use them to make Masala Vadai


3, 3, 3 :-)

#3; I only have the brown ones right now, but I love them all!

3. I have two kinds in the pantry right now

Boy, oh, boy, do I have a lot to learn. Thanks for introducing me to ingredients I have yet to experience.

#3 for sure!

#3 and yes I do.

#3, yes have them

#3 Boy, things sure look different when they're posing for a close-up! Yes, I've got some of the red version in my pantry, but I've struggled with this ingredient for years....they seem to always turn out "muddy" tasting to me.

# 3 Yes,
I have them and love them. Thanks for all the interesting facts!


#3 and no I don't.

I forgot to say that yes, I have them in my pantry: at least three varieties.

3 and yes have them.
