AVATAR ...!!!

Watching movies in theaters have become something of the past ever since I became busy with my son...Somehow, this vacation I managed to watch this 3D movie, AVTAR  in theaters and it was a movie worth watching after a long gap...

Todays's post is neither a movie review nor a new addition to my cookbook, as you may think...It is just another random thought that came to my mind while watching the movie , which I thought to share with you...So go ahead only if you have some time to scratch your head reading it ...!!!

Land of Kerala is famous for its fish recipes like any other coastal regions... Slight alterations in the ingredients can make a big difference as can be seen from the various fish preparations across the state...Some of my observations are here...

Coconut Rice....

coconut rice

Bored of eating plain rice in combo with the regular side dishes..? Coconut rice is one option to try out then... It just needs a nice pickle to go along with it.

Instant Mango pickle ( Kadumanga )


" My mom makes it like this !!!!!!!! "  Hope this sounds familiar for any wife who attempts to make anything which is a trademark from your mother in law....I used to defend this statement from my hubby with the excuse that we never used to get the genuine Kerala items in Wollongong to make some dishes, the way it used to be made in Kerala...
( I know it is just an excuse to save myself :)  )

Semia Payasam (Kheer)…To Welcome 2010

Semiya Payasam

Though there are an ‘N’ varieties of payasams from the land of Kerala, when you hear the word 'payasam' it is this particular variety made using semia (vermicelli), that comes to the mind of any Malayalee as this is the most popular and easiest of all.
