Mixture is a definite symbol of various natured people living under one roof, different shaped pieces...but basic dough is the same...are mixed together. Obviously we cannot pair the urad flour added Thenkuzhal and Omam added Omapodi...My mom and sister always used to say, Mixture making is quite easy...if there are a few helping hands...But I did with just my 2 hands😇😇
