ಏನ್  ಅಡಿಗೆ  ? roars (ehehehe...) from outside the house........
I said Poori Saagu ....there was sudden change in the voice...ooooh..  ಬಂದೆ ..ಬಂದೆ ಬೇಗ ತಟ್ಟೆ  ಹಾಕು ....
ಏನ್  ಅಡಿಗೆ - means what is cooking ?
ಬಂದೆ ..ಬಂದೆ ಬೇಗ ತಟ್ಟೆ  ಹಾಕು ....I am coming....get the plates ready (in literal translation)

this is a scene at home whenever I make Poori Saagu at home for breakfast, lunch or dinner ...anytime we mark our sleeves up and get ready to eat Poori..we devour Poori and Saagu .. :D

Dinner is the only meal that I cook at home and we all come home empty stomach ..even my son does not wannt to eat in his day care center..he too adds his voice with dad these days..amma.. dinner ready is it ?..little one is learning to speak Kannada; he is a India born confused Singaporean..(took this statement from J&B of Jugalbandi) so most of the time his spoken English has no grammer ....only spoken English stands "free of rules" in Singapore rest all must abide ....die die must follow la..

So here is a plate of poori saagu for you and it's recipe
