Pongal brings back so much of childhood memories. I am glad to have recorded it all in this blog. My paternal grandpa, my village, home full of elders, relatives visiting every other minute, coffee/tea boiling non stop, pongal cooking in front yard on new mud pot with turmeric plant wrapped around it, mango leaves thoranam, chithappas, periyappas, anna, akka, mama, maami.

Paal pongiyachaaa?? heard one thousand times in this day, endless eating of farm cut fresh sugarcane. I am glad to have experienced and lived a rich childhood.

Watching Aruvi with Adi now. A much watch!

    • was standing in kitchen all morning but it reminded me of Amma Jo! How she used to have that kadhi towel tied around as a bun in her wet hair and continue to cook for offering to God without tasting the dish in a very authentic way. I did the same exact thing yesterday morning. I got a kadhi towel this time from India (actually its an old towel I sutufied from Amma) and using that to wrap my wet hair. It brings back the memories of Amma 🙂 🙂
