There has been a marked change in the dinner menu for a function among the citizens of Ellampillai.
The cuisine has taken for a blend of the north and south, served on a banana leaf, on table tops.
Buffet style is yet to take its step into our bubbling town, but will soon, seeing the wastage of food that is taking place, and the hurry burry.
The last dinner i had been too was a great hit, and a bouncing waste.
One has to be wary of a quick hand that serves and rushes to the next person's leaf,the target it seems is to fill the spaces of the leaf than the tummy of the person.( there is an overflow)
The menu for the dinner i went last was,
vegetable ghee pulav
deep fried yam
butter beans sundal
mysore bonda with a cashew inside
chappathi with paneer gravy, ( roomali roti at another one)
bisi bele bhath
white rice with more kulambhu,( with a vadai ) rasam
followed with banana, fruit salad ice cream and iced paan( the betel leaves all the way from kolkatta.
Like some one said,
"When u hate to waste the food that is served, u know where it goes WAIST."
Now u know why i am round and like a bouncer when i walk.
