A feast from South India

Remembering my roots through the simple delicacies from Andhra Pradesh. The kind of simple that is a result of generations of tradition and care.In the way they are cooked, seasoned and served. The kind that doesn't yearn to be extra ordinary but just is. Like how a home feels. Simple,familiar but special and irreplaceable. My early memories of this authentic meal consist of cooking on log fires, served on fresh banana leaves sprinkled with just a wee bit of water and being taught how to fold the leaf when I was done eating. Every step almost feels like worship and love.
