Pavakka / Bitter Gourd Errisery

This traditional grinding stone reminds me of our domestic help grinding the ingredients for fish curry masala with great energy and that masala turns out to be tasterier than the mixi ground masala. 

Today I tried out my hands on this and really enjoyed this new experience.
