Is the Andhra Pappu famous in Karnataka too?One must grant it to Andhra Pradesh and Telangana as well. They have such a huge variety of dishes. One of these is the famous Pappu, which is made of dal and tomato and one vegetable, I guess. I had this "Pappu" on many occasions and found that it had one vegetable or no vegetable. Yet, it was a very tasty item.
Now, here comes a big twist. My friend who hails from Karnataka, argues that the same dish is famou in Karnataka as well. When I checked with other Karnataka friends, they were not too sure. Of course, they have lived for a long time in Chennai and know more about the local dishes than their own State dishes!!!
Jokes apart, what is the truth? How many varieties of Pappu are there? For example, is it possible to make Pappu with banana flower? Members who know the actual truth may please share their views.
