Vadagam Black (Kaka)

Vadagam are used for seasoning in the Indian curries, kulambu, gravies, poriyal, kuttu & chutneys, which gives special aroma & flavour for the dishes. Usually this is one of the item I pack from India (every India visit) I asked my mum about the recipe for this and make use of the hot wheather here in SG.
