    I do not use all these dals, but I will try it.
    Just out of curiosity, can there be a north Indian Iyengar?
    There are North Indian Vaishnavs.

    I do not know the tone of your question, so I am not going to answer it, the answer is evident.
    My post was in response the OP.
    which said:

    I thought it was oxymoron.

    There are north indian iyengars.
    They are originally from south but settled in mathura

    There are two iyengar temples -divya desam ones -One is vada mathura sri goverdana dasa perumal near brindavan and another thirvaipadi sri navamohana krishna perumal temple, ayarpadi.

    The priests there are settled for centuries are iyengars. They communicate in hindi and are of tamil origin.

    They are truly north indian iyengar.

    I am one. My father settled in delhi in nineteen twenties,almost a century back, But I know tamil because I studied in tamil schools here.lol

    Thanks for the info. But my post was kind of tongue-in-cheek comment.

    In USA they have a term WASP which stands for White Anglo Saxon Protestant ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_...xon_Protestant). By definition you can not have black Anglo Saxons.

    Your explanation just gives a transplanted Iyangars. They are not a distinct group separate from the mother group to form a sect yet. If you had said "south Indian Iyengar Mutton chops" or "South Indian Iyangar Beef burrito" then it will be different matter.

    Have a heart.prasadji

    Our Vatha kuzhambu is an iyengar speciality.

    It should not lose its significance in north south hair splittiing.




    Thanks to PSN sir for posting the recipe.
