Agathi Poo Poriyal

Agathi Poo Poriyal, this is quite a rare dish that we make at our home (Mom's home). It is rare due to the availability of agathi poo. It is not easily available in markets. We get this flower in packets in supermarket occasionally. I have not seen this flower in Chennai markets so far but we get it in my mom's place(Coimbatore) rarely. This agathi poo is very good for health especially for problems related stomach ulcer. If you could get this flower anywhere, then give this recipe a try.
