Venkatagiri Chepala Pulusu Recipe, How To Make Venkatagiri Chepala Pulusu Recipe

This is a special Nellore recipe best cooked in earthen pot. Nellore Bommidayila Chepala Pulusu is die for any Nellore people. I experimented this first time in College Station TX with a good friend and perfected it in no time. Like Sanjay says Vahrehvah is about inspiring others to cook for me, cooking is passion and stress buster.

This is what I learned from my amma and peddamma who are expert cooks of this. Once even a pregnant lady in Dallas wanted this when I was in College Station TX. I cooked and sent.
