Its been quite a while since i have put a post. Actually i was on vacation last month to India, my home town. This was our first visit after marriage and our first Onam (festival celebrated in Kerala) with both the families. Had a gala good time making pookkalam (flower carpet), and eating sadhya’s ( feast of the people of Kerala) and getting onakkodi (new clothes)…..:)
Now i am back to my normal routines here in Richmond. The fall here, is almost 60%. Yesterday, we had kanji (rice soup) and chammanthi for dinner. WOw….it tasted yum!!!! Thought to share with you the recipe of Pachamanga Chammanthi.

Coconut, grated – 1/2 cup
