Of Flavours & Tastes…

Vattilappam !!

Vattilappam takes me back to childhood again.The wrinkled hands,the passionate hugs and tempting aroma wafting in the kitchen.My Grandmother ! She was outstanding in almost whatever she was doing at home.A perfect host,an excellent cook,a smart lady..Whenever we visited her,I used to roam around her kitchen,watching the magic of her hands.She knew several tricks to entertain us,the children folks.The large,brown coloured bottles at her kitchen cabinet spoke in volumes.It was just natural for my eyes to follow her hands picking up the valuable ingredients from the jars and how easily she convert them to edible,sweet and melting etables within minutes.Vattilappam was her special dessert to make us happy.I guess,perhaps the best dessert one can assemble using the available ingredients at home.Eggs,coconut milk and jaggery.All available plenty at home during that time.But it’s an amazing sweet,with subtle sweet flavours exploding to sheer enjoyment in our mouth.My girlie loves to hear real life stories,of people.Most of them originate at our kitchen.Luckily,I can relate most of the food to someone and the chat begins.It’s going on here,enriching both me and my little princess…
