Winter is my most loved season, pleasant climate, waking up to a nail biting cold day and have plenty of fresh vegetables and green vegetables. Spinach, fenugreek, cilantro, mint are all farm fresh and smell so good.

Tambli is a dish from South Canara cuisine. It is yoghurt based  dip like with a green leaf, coconut and few other ingredients. Tambli can be made using different green leaf and vegetables as Spinach, Fenugreek, Ginger, Cucumber to name a few.
