Very South

Every time we have friends over for lunch or dinner, we end up having a mix of continental and Indian. Most times, north Indian. Realized we hadn’t  had our neighbours over, ever, for a typical south Indian meal, duh! So here are some pictures to share, all captured by Chirag, of our very south Indian lunch.

On the menu…

Majjige huli (like a buttermilk sambar), pineapple gojju.

majjige huli and kootu

The Kootu  (a nice thick sambar with veggies and peanuts) and flat beans dry curry.

palya

Carrot and moong dal + cucumber kosambari (salad) and puliyogare (seasoned tamarind paste mixed with white rice)

Nucchina unde (toor dal dumplings, seasoned, mashed and steamed, usually eaten with the buttermilk sambar)

nucchina unde

Mango ras (this is not very south Indian, but which Indian can resist mangoes?)

mango pulp

The table! And yes, that IS red wine. After running through a list of what we could possibly drink along with a south Indian meal, this was it. And it went down rather well!
