Everytime when I go to little India for the past 4-5 times I am able to get Valaipoo. Even though it takes more time to get it prepared I go ahead ad pick it up everytime (Benefits out weighs the effort :-)).. Other than getting it prepared the balance process is simple. May be this is for your favourite  serial time?
