Mampazham and kappilandi
Eating Chaampanga with salt crystals.
The varikka Chakka pazhams
Aanikka during the summer holidays
Ripened paddy fields.... Koithu...Threshing them in the nights with old ladies telling us stories!
Long awaited kanimangaas . rushing for them at dawns to pick them as they fall dead.
Those wild grasses on kayyalapurams
The ever trustable papayas
Year long waiting for Kanikonna for Vishu
The summer fragrance of freshly blossomed coffee trees...
Vazhakula... catching bats with prickly bouquets at dusks
The ever present Mashi thandu (Pepromia)
Rainy season fare: ilumbi puli with salt crystals!
Passion fruits sherbets with some extra sugar... biting down the crunchy seeds
Aathakka and the surprise of seeing them ripe
Feast of eating Kambili naaranga
Kudampuli int the rainy season: drying them on chirapurathu
The surprise of Perakka
The abundant karikkum vellam
Narayanan chettante kadayile kaappi!
