‘Madhuram’ means ‘sweet’ & this is a ‘sweet curry’ made specially from fruits served in Ona Sadhya. It’s easy to make within five to ten minutes.
     When I first made this curry I had doubts as to whether this sweet curry will go well with the rice? After trying this curry, I can say this curry is perfectly balanced for sweetness and spiciness . I bet you'd lick your finger when you eat this dish…yummy
