Perfect Pair

One is sturdy and will grow into a mighty tree. The other is a slender and tender herb.

Both have strong flavors. Surprisingly they do not suppress each other. 

Think about all the dishes wherein they complement each other... Rasam, Lemon rice, vegetable curries, buttermilk to name a few. 

Inclusive yet retaining their individuality.
I am in awe of this pair Kothamalli and Karuvepillai.

See how they coexist in this pot before they go hand in hand to make fine food. 
Grow them together. And get some food for thought too.
