Coconut Milk Rice and Saravana Bhavan Style Vegetable kurma.


Finally after  a very long time i am blogging again. My son’s board exams , preparation for GAT are some reasons  . But the real thing i did not want to change my serious tempo. Getting that at this age is difficult for , children we have to become like that . Although we are now mature to dream and aspire at the same time accept what is give we cannot do that for our children. So with less expectation but more motivation  am trying to do that serious Parent work. But in spite of this cooking and doing other works is not restricted. Only blogging is blocked. But could not resist that mood when i came across Kannamma cooks page. The photo and the love in cooking and sharing was igniting so cooked yesterday and today and blogging immediately . Usually it is my style to cook, capture and blog . It is  like doing a Chemistry experiment and recording the details and presenting a report . But assuring you the food will taste like Amirtham and not like a chemical (:.
