For quite a while now, we've been focussing upon the foods that are either fit for our diet or are too mainstream as per our traditions. So, today I just gave it a thought that what if I could introduce you to some of the food varieties that could take you back to your childhood?
Just like me, I'm sure there are lots of other people who always fall in love with the food that our Nani Maa and Dadi Maa make. When we were kids, she always had one such special ingredient in her kitchen that made even the simple daal or kadhi more relishing. Well, if you're having any plans right now to get that reviving feeling, I would suggest you move your ass.
Quite blunt though! I'm saying this as there is something waiting for all you food lovers just around the corner. Can you imagine about 150 or more dishes that will be home-made from the Grandma's kitchen ingredients at one place? Well if not, let's try remembering some of these at a glance.
What better than Goan clams? People from Goa and the neighbouring parts can relate well with this. A fine culinary from Goa's coastal refinery. Seafood, coconut and all the spicy goodness in just one recipe.
A rice and jaggery sweet that was a staple during the occasions of the past. It's about a long time since we tried one of these this year and bought one of those store barfis, right?
A gem from Mangalore, this coastal curry is certainly one to boast about. Almost none I feel can beat the delightful flavour and texture combination that this spicy curry and crispy roti will bring to the table.
The aroma of melting ghee and mashed vegetables. Litti Chokha is a delicacy from Bihar that perfectly portrays what memories are made of. And I wish I could taste it now!
Almost every one of us in India is aware of the Pohe, yet we're unknown of this cousin Dadpe Pohe from Maharashtra. This cold snack has the very basic flavours of lemon, curry leaves and green chilli, with the prominent flavour of fresh coconut.
Singhara or water chestnut is the most important ingredient of this famous Singhare ki kachri. This came to existence from the kitchens of Lucknow and later became famous as a street food because of its unbeatable spicy garlic and ginger tinge. Packed with flavour and nutrition, this is truly spectacular!
From the khets of Punjab, the pure taste of Sarso da saag and makke di roti is obtained. Remember that melting butter on roti and rich saag that made your mouth flood.
While everyone is still stuck in the Indian sweets made from khova, cashews and dry fruits, Ande ka meetha halwa is something different to relish. It has no particular origin as of now so it is made and enjoyed everywhere in India.
Made from the very famous Khus herb, this sharbat is a perfect drink for Indian summers.
A very popular Makar Sankranti dish from Andhra Pradesh with the goodness of khoya, coconut and jaggery. This will surely make you crave for more South India cuisines.
Made from cauliflower stems in a spicy, tangy gravy, this Punjabi dish is just what you wanted with the fulkas (roti).
If you really wanna experience such good taste and aroma of the recipes from Grandma's kitchen, you must go to India's first ever food festival and mark your attendance here: Home Food Festival event organized by The Frying Pan which will be hosted in Ambience Mall, Gurgaon between 5-6th August 2017.
