I am a 66 yr old single person who live on the outskirts of Hyderabad, where my friend Jacob runs a Malyalee shop that provides all the ingredients for Kerala home cooking, to remind me of my youth, and my mom’s food, in Ambalapuzha, which I yearn for and try to recreate. I do it daily just by referring to your food blog. I am most grateful to you, because I have dementia and can’t remember what ingredients to put in which recipe, though I am a good cook like all Malayalee men !!
Thank you for making my old age worth living for, even if it is just only for the pleasure of eating !!!

Generally in kaalan Cummin seeds are not used while grinding with coconut…only pepper and green chillies are used..to get authentic taste…
