I only like Kosu in palya, or Chinese dishes... but in a huli, not so much. I think Kosu doesn’t go well with the taste of sambar powder. But my husband LOOOVES it!! I thought he was one of a kind loving this huli, until my cousin Archana told me that she LOVES it too!! Now two people loving this huli is not a mere coincidence :) .. I got curious and found out that she had a different recipe. I tried it and it came out good. This huli, I liked. Believe me, if a kosu huli non-liker like me has liked this huli, then anybody can.
This huli has a strong cinnamon flavor, which I think reduces the pungency of cabbage.
