  1. Is that curd rice with mangoes ? Wow - I love it...

  2. Infact your thayir saadam looks just like the ones served at temples... looks very rish and nicely topped!!

  3. Dhadhiyodham..mmmm...ennoda favourite...looks so creamy!! Love those extra factors like pomegranate, know what chopped mavudus (incase raw mango is out of season) is also a great idea!!

  4. Actually kitty, mavadus are not served in temple. Instead, Even they don,t put pomegranate and cucumber. Still it tastes good. But at homes we I top like this.

  5. This is comfort food! Looks yummy!
