Puliodarai or Tamrind rice, a delicacy of Karnataka, with its own special flavor of dry coconut, sesame powder and groundnuts. To go with it... Tomato and Cucumber Raita
Dahi wada made in the north Indian style with all the extra fitting like, special sweet chutney made of jaggery, dates and tamarind, and all the dry chatpatta dry chat masalas to go with it.
The mandatory Curd rice without which no authentic south Indian can say that the meal is over
For dessert Mango Kulfi.
Although the menu looks very simple, but it is not so easy doing everything by yourself especially on a Sunday when it is a holiday for the maid. So apart from cooking a simple looking meal (yet with lots of detail going into it), I had to the additional responsibility of washing vessels, keeping the house tidy before the guests arrived for lunch and get ready too. Plus I couldn't resist a photo session of the meal I had cooked so lovingly. So husband was dragged to take some good as well as not so good pictures!!
Tell me whether you liked what had been prepared, or is it too simple for all the fuss I made it out to be? I would love to know from all. Happy eating yummy but simple food!!!
