Karapu Annam, one of the specality spicy rice from Andhra(telugana region) recipes..this rice is one of my favourite, i prepare them often whenever i feel like having something spicy..its really very easy to prepare, if u prepared the special spicy powder already..this rice goes awesome with boiled eggs r papads, they looks like tamarind rice, but a bit spicy..we know very well that Andhra dishes r mainly well known for spiciness, i love their traditionally prepared sun-dried tomato pickles, which my aunt prepare often n send them, thrice every year when i was in Pondicherry..now am far away n missing everything..but somehow managing to prepare some spicy recipes originated from Andhra..
