Vishu Greetings !

P1020019

Wising all my friends a Happy and prosperous Vishu !
This time we are happy that we got Vishu on a weekend, so we are celebrating vishu with friends this time .Our vishu menu includes Brown rice, Sambar, Avial,Malabar kuttu curry, Sweet kuttu curry, Rasam, Thoran, Parippu, Erisserry,Betroot pachadi, Payasam etc and if I get more time and any more veggies maybe will make 1-2 items more.I have already started pre preprations.My veggies are all chopped and freezed.I just need to cook it tomorrow morning.But still need to do lot of coconut grating and for that I am waiting for my DH to come back from work.He is the official coconut grater of our house, I am bit slow so I always take it as an excuse and leave that job to him.
Finding a konna poovu(Vishu Flower) in U.K is out of question ,but last year after Vishu we found europe version of Konna everywhere and later I saw that flower featured in Mathrubhumi sunday edition(Malayalam daily ) as Europe's Konna ,cant remember the english name of it.This time I looked for it but couldnt find that anywhere.But instead found some wild yellow flowers on the back yard of our apartment.Today me and my lil one went down with scissors and snipped a little of it for our Vishu Kani tomorrow.
So Once again to all my friends, Have a great Vishu !
