Meme: 10 Things I miss of my Mom's cooking

Pushpa of PuSiVa'S CuLiNarY StUdiO had tagged me for this Meme. This being my first meme did not want to let it go without answering. When I got around to seeing this meme I was on vacation and actually enjoying my mom's cooking. Now that I am back and missing her cooking thought it was perfect time. Thanks Pushpa I can now walk through memory lane and take a peek at my favorites.

1. Fish Fry and Fish Curry - actually took pictures while she was making.



2. Paal curry kuzhambu with dosai - a watery curry made with coconut milk and tastes excellent with dosai, this curry is regualar in my ammayi's (mom's mom) home also.

3. Mor Kuzhambu with vadakam

4. Mutton Keema with chappathi - Minced mutton

5. Chicken Curry - used to be a regular item on sundays when we feast on this and watch a movie

6. Puzhi Chutney - Chutney made with dal and tamarind, it is usually helps in a pinch when there are no vegetables but this is a dish I yearn for.

7. Panniyaram and Coconut chutney

8. Thakkali Rasam Tomato Rasam

9. Potato Podimas - With grated coconut Yum.

10.Idly Uppuma - made with leftover or sometimes even fresh idlis.

Most of these dishes are what we eat everyday but bring back memories and a longing for home like no other.

PS: Looks like the Indian government has lifted the 'Block on Blogs' and my mom is again able to see my blog.
