10 Things I miss about my moms cooking ~ Meme

Nice theme
garam masala. Here are the 10 things I miss about my moms cooking.

1. Cleanliness: I remember my mom being very particular when it comes to keeping the kitchen clean. She used to stay hours in the kitchen till 11 pm cleaning up everything, while we were in deep sleep by then.

2. Sambhar: Ever since I'm married I've made this dish a hundred times, never it came up like the one which my mom does. Thats her magic :-)

3. Sesame curry: This special dish which she made with nuvvulu was always a hit and the tastiest dish I miss a lot too.

4. Amma mudda: The most tastiest bite of rice anyone would ever have, be it with avakaya and mudda pappu or plain rice with charu the taste is unforgettable.

5. Mysore pak: A sweet made with besan (senagapindi) and ghee, and that really melts in the mouth.

6. Biryani: Its damn good. All I can say is I love it.

7. Uppudu pindi: Made with rice rava and moong dal, she used to make this on saturdays when she was fasting.

8. Kheema fry: A spicy mutton recipe. Never I tasted this dish at any restaurant, after eating my moms home made one.

9. Boondi laddu: sweet balls round in shape made again with besan, was a feast every year on my birthday.

10. Bobbara vadalu: A snack made with black eyed beans.The pain she used to take to grind the paste in a rubbu rolu (a hand made grinder), and the taste... I have no words to say.

Thanks to
sailu for reminding me of my moms cooking (with her chinta chiguru pappu post a few days back) and also for her first comment on my blog, to indira of mahanandi a place where I stop by everyday.

My eyes are filled with tears reading all this...I agree - Nothing to beat mom's cooking..I miss my mom's cooking also.She's the best I can say, but it is so unfortunate that due to her medical conditions, she is not only banned from the kitchen but also from eating.She can only have 3gms of salt per day in all she eats. I feel extremely sad for her.I hope if she will ever get back to normal.
