My family has a super strong heritage for tasty cooking. I would literally pawn anything at all I own (!) for my paati's milagu kuzhambu ( The literal english translation is Grandmom's Pepper Gravy. It does not convey the same meaning). I had to dine out for lunch over the weekend, and was looking forward to dive into my paati's kuzhumbu for dinner. Had plain rice with this gravy and when asked how it tastes, I could just say one word - Mallika Sherawat! HOT!
