Very famous in south India.
Rice is the staple food of southern part of India and a typical Andhra meal consists of pappu (dal) with pickle, fry and papaddums. Kandipappu or tuvar dal is one of the popular dals grown in India. It is called as arhar in Bengali and tuvara parippu in Malayalam. It’s slightly sweet and highly digestable too.
Those hot sunny days during March and April when plenty of mangoes are available,people at my place are busy preparing pickles and children eating raw mangoes with salt and chillie powder.
Upma is a South Indian breakfast dish. It is usually made with refined wheat grains, which Indians generally call suji and is also known in the south of India as rava. A variety of upmas can be made with either vermicelli and thick, brown wheat grains. Upma is easy to prepare. For taste, vegetables may be added.
Okra is a rich source of many nutrients, including fiber, vitamin B6 and folic acid. The superior fiber found in okra helps to stabilize blood sugar.
For best cooking results, okra should be fresh (not frozen). The pods should be small (3 inches or so long), or the okra becomes tough and stringy. If forced to use frozen okra, remove as much of the moisture as possible before cooking by spreading on a paper towel, or patting it dry. I remember my moms pattern to remove the moisture where she used to wash okra’s with fresh water and wipe them up each separately with a dry cloth before she cuts them.
