Seeralam is a recipe new to me and this recipe I adapted from regional television show couple of weeks back.
The recipe sounds quiet easy and innovative,so I tried it with small quantity,it came out so delicious and filling but it needs to be served hot.Its a  perfect evening snack option along with a cup of tea.Try this yummy snack and enjoy,lets move on to the recipe.....................................
