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.
Koora Podi is something my mother prepared for me when I got married. Along with a steel box full of Koora Podi, she also handed me over a slip with its detailed recipe. I wasn't so keen then but that slip taught me something which eased my workload and made my day on numerous occasions.
Take brinjal, ladies finger, bottle gourd, ridge gourd or anything. All that you need to do is to add this Koora Podi and it results in a brilliant taste.
I used it on many occasions when I was hard-pressed for time with two young kids and while Gangadharam was working literally round-the-clock.
I used it on my long trips to North India. Gangadharam and I used to carry a small camp stove on which we used to cook any locally available vegetable with Koora Podi and enjoy the meal.
My son Srikanth used it when he was on an inter-university exchange program and travelled to some remote places in the North-East.
Having said that, you don't have to be hard-pressed for time or travel to remote places to use Koora Podi. Those were its benefits in extreme situations. But, it has one other great benefit - it makes any curry tasty. So, go ahead and try the influence of Koora Podi.
