delicious murukku
preethi not sure if the sour cream coffee cake would be the same without eggs although it might work because the sour cream makes it fluffy
let me know if you try

Hi Preethi, this is my first time here and i'm loving it. My husband is a tambram and he often asks me to try tamilian recipes. I think your space will help me a lot.
BTW, murrukkus look amazing.
