Colour Rice Vankaya Kura is a delicious combo meal and an excellent way to welcome you all to the New Year! I am looking forward to a wonderful Foodie year ahead!.
It’s with great pleasure I am sharing yet another edition of Blogging Marathon that’s entered its 60th edition this month. It surely makes it all the more special. It would not have been possible if not for my BM friends and you my readers.
We are starting the first week with a wonderful theme “Your Family Recipe” and for the day I will be sharing something from my inlaw’s kitchen.
For over many years we have been following the tradition of visiting Hubby’s hometown during Sankranti. That’s when we all meet the entire family as both his sisters family to come together. Apart from us, there are his cousin’s families too, visiting. So it will be a huge gathering and much fun and frolic happens.
This year due to various reasons, we ended up visiting during Christmas vacation. And I didn’t lift a finger, no not even a toe! Everybody had fun including me, who tried spending most available time reading. Needless to say, it was the most enjoyed time.
In such times, I always look forward to the cooking that happens, in which I feature most and also gather their food customs etc. I mostly try to replicate the dishes immediately, to ensure the correctness of hearing is not missed.
During such gathering nonveg meals become the highlight and since I am the lone vegetarian, I mostly request them to avoid cooking for me. My SIL never agrees and always makes something special for me. As the rice is always the Masala rice or the Colour Rice as its famously called, it is easy to make a side dish along with the rice.
So this time again, she made a colour rice and a brinjal side dish that was so delicious. Especially when you driving down and have a picnic basket made, the meal becomes so interesting.
My packed lunch was Colour rice with Vankaya Kura along with Seeru Keerai Poriyal with pappuru
