Palli Perunnal to Festival of Lights

Category : Food

Went for the festival of lights at the waterfront yesterday, marking the beginning of Xmas celebrations. Was it impressive? Well, not for someone who has seen  കുഴികട്ടുശ്ശേരി പള്ളി പെരുന്നാൾ , അയ്യപ്പൻ കാവ്‌ ഉത്സവം and Kombodinjamakkal ചന്ദനക്കുടം.  🙂

Sinu asked me a question there, that every wife asks the husband many times. What are my favourite dishes (Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana – style)? (Excluding the ones she cooks). My answer was quick: My Mom’s chicken, Mother in law’s pork and Geeta Aunty’s Beef. Here are the reasons why: My Mom adds tomato sauce to chicken fry giving it a unique flavour. My Mother in law adds പെരുംജീരകം instead of ordinary ജീരകം to pork. Geeta Aunty uses a unique breed of beef found only in Aloor and bought from the slaughter house near Aloor gate!

 Some tastes stay with you forever!
