Wondering who I am?I am grandmother.
Remember that person who always brought a smile to your face for being
the one who always heard you,
the one who loved you no matter what,
the one who laughed at whatever you said whether or not they understood.
I am that person.
It was only after I met Renuka, in Hyderabad, I got a glimpse of the quirky tastes of Telangana.
We were on our way to the tailoring class. And, on that fateful day, I forgot my lunchbox!
The ever sweet Renuka wholeheartedly offered a portion of her lunch to me.
I found a familiar texture of red juicy pickle in the box. "Nice, it's Avakaya." I said to myself.
But wait, it had a pleasantly pungent peppery aroma written all over! "This smells different", is what I thought.
The very first morsel I tasted introduced me to a whole new world of dynamic tastes of the land. I loved the tanginess of Garlic while at the same time was enjoying the earthy spice of Ginger. Never have I imagined my favourite Avakaya can have a terrific spin of this sort.
After lunch, Renuka and I had a long conversation around its preparation, storage and her stories associated with food.
The pickle's taste lingered all through the day.
Trust me, try Ginger Garlic Avakaya and you would love the experience.
