I am a kind of person who doesn’t like takeaway food or eating outside or visiting restaurants often. I don’t mind spending few more minutes at kitchen to lovingly cook comforting food for my family. Unless otherwise required I say big ‘NO’ to oily, spicy food with baking soda in it. I have good number of favorite foods that fall under comfort food zone. Comfort food is one which satisfies our soul as well as stomach. It often reminds our childhood memories and happy moments. It’s amazing to see how our mind relates certain food and it’s taste with incidents that might have happened a decade ago.
Plain rice with rasam, papad and fryums has always been one of my comfort food which is even my family favorite. Whenever I have to cook something a fresh for dinner, I go for simple kokum rasam type of recipe. It takes really few minutes and very few ingredients to cook, but believe me the taste is amazingly delicious. All it needs is soaking dry kokum for 15 minutes, then boiling it with basic spices and tempering with flavorful cumin in ghee. Dark purple colored tangy kokum rasam balanced with sweet, salt and hot taste can be a best rice side dish or can be consumed as soup too. Both way it is a winner.
Meet you all with one more interesting recipe. Till then bye.
