I prepared this pachadi a long time back for onam sadya. I had so many functions on that week. I went to my native place and attended the function and returned back to Chennai on onam day only. So I was not able to post earlier. So I am posting it today only. Poosanikai is known as Kumbalanga in Kerala.
