and memories come gushing as I remember in my grandparents house, the guava tree which I used to climb umpteen number of times in a day, my secret location near the stairs where I used to hide if I was angry, the ice cream treats that my uncles bought for us and we, kids playing in the tiny little garden of my grand mom which she took great care of. Curry leaf plant and bottle gourd plant were usuals there and they needed no special care. A little water mostly from rain and they used to grow up like crazy. :-). Dappalam was one of the andhra signature made and every household has its own version. This one is close to what my grand mom used to make for us, in my childhood.
until next time,
