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.
Dabbakaya played more than the role of a pickle in my life.
When Gangadharam was working in the remote areas of Kurnool in the scorching sun, Dabbakaya and Curd rice helped him to keep his tummy cool and composed. It was playing the role of nutritionist for me then.
When Srikanth, my son, was unwell with viral fever and was finding any dish bitter, it was only Dabbakaya whose taste he liked. The Vitamin C in Dabbakaya helped build his immune system. So, it played the role of curer then.
When we used to go out during our childhood, my grandmother used to pack Dabbakaya in the old-styled brass tiffin boxes with rice or chapati. It played the role of a good food companion then.
I think I can go on and on with its health benefits.
But let me tell you this, it tastes out of the world. It has this amazing tangy, spicy taste coupled with an apt amount of sourness to make it a brilliant addition to your favourite pickles. Trust me, try it!
