This may not be available in the mess on a daily basis, but would have been on the menu on that particular day. You may try the Pavakkai Chips, which would be more or less similar in taste and available in most chips shops.

Hi ji

Its nt a menu on the day. Its one of those things which they make on their own and sell on the side with other pickels and murukku and stuff. Its dark and round. Sour n hot. To be eaten with rice and rasam or sambar.
