The reason I visit your blogs is not the quality of your blog but the fact that you often prepare my favorites and impart knowledge...

Payasam aka kher is my favorite and I never miss them in any marriage...

Marriages in kerala serve kheer as the last item. I always eat less rice and try more Kheer.... :)
