The Back Story
Everyone is cooking up a storm in their kitchens for the upcoming Thanksgiving meal tomorrow, I am doing my part !
The big bird /turkey always scared the heck out of me, so I settled for the ever friendly chicken instead.Yes, I believe good things come in small packets!
Thanksgiving is all about being grateful and celebrating the togetherness with our loved ones with food and fun.
This dish is exclusive and authentic to Mangalore, a coastal town in South India and my native. Giving the Thanksgiving table a touch of culture is always in my opinion, a way of sharing a deep reverence to the food I have tasted across tables with laughter & joy in the past and merging it with gratitude for the new land that has adopted me as their own…. food , people and all!
In many ways our Thanksgiving table is a fusion of the east and the west and we feel blessed to have experienced both, the food and the culture.
Yes, like Hafiz the poet, so beautifully said “This place where you are right now, God circled on a map for you ” .
