Flavorsome Tuesdays

First of all, I thank her for letting me know about the flavorsome Tuesday yummy blog updates.


Back in 2015, I blogged number themes that made the Blogathon easier. Now that I don’t have a plan, I thought doing a A-Z flavorsome Tuesday’s would be fun. I love food and it’s the basic need for anyone. After all, we are all what we eat, right?

I might write about anything related to food- my likes, dislikes, or even stories from my kitchen matching the alphabet-for-the-week.

So here we go –

A is for Angaya Podi

My mom made me have this every single day postpartum! According to her and my Grandma, this mix is loaded with health benefits. It’s good for gas; reduces pain, cools you, helps with digestion and many more. It’s so nutritious and healthy for women after delivery.

I have a love hate relationship with this. There were days I loved it when mom made me eat this with hot rice and ghee. There were other days when I just couldn’t have it.

And oh! Btw, the lavender household loves Apples and Avocado too.
