Avial (vegetables in yogurt)
During this festival called Pongal (Harvest festival in India - which comes in the month of january) my grandmom used to make this for the whole family to feast on!!
It was an occasion when all daughters and grand-daughters visited their grandparents home and prayed together for the health and well-being of their respective brothers...
I lost my younger brother to cancer in 2009
All the memories of this day have since stood etched in my heart and whenever I make this traditional dish at home...I feel like I am cooking for my brother himself :)
