So, Palm Sunday must have been grand, what-with the special lunch and dinner menus that we prepared exclusively for you.
And right after such a wonderful meal, how can you slow down and slouch the next day? Let's beat the proverbial Monday morning blues with yet another plan for an exotic lunch and a fun dinner.
Monday has to go easy on the tummy as it not only kick starts a brand new week, but also brings to end an indulgent weekend. For the Holy Week, we have put together yet another array of vegetarian recipes to help you whip them up easily in your kitchen. We also hope it will be gratifying, for you would have turned into an enviable chef by the time it's all done!
For lunch, we have the neutralising soul food, curd rice or thayir sadam as the neighbouring state calls it. A creamy, luscious main course, it's a complete meal in itself. But let's not stop there; we also have koorkka olarthu, the one tuber that every Malayalee loves to munch on for lunch. The season for Chinese potato, locally known as koorkka, is on, and we highly recommend you get some. And then comes the ulli theeyal. The undisputed Queen of curries in our quaint kitchens, the abundance of shallots makes it just perfect. Not to forget, the super crunchy bitter gourd fry. Psst: We have a secret to share, and it has to do with extra crunch!
And when lunch is this lip-smacking delicious, how can the dinner fall behind?
For dinner, let's go coastal, and dish up the pristine sannas, a Mangalorean favourite that caught up in Malabar. To go with it, let's take a leaf out of the Goan cookbook and prepare the exotic vindaloo with okra.
We sure hope you have fun preparing the dishes. A little tip would be, to eat in lesser portions, for we have lots more coming up for you!
