A couple if weeks ago, I sat down for a lunch at an Andhra restaurant off Brigade road, Bangalore. The meal was served on plantain leaf. It had been like ages since I had a good meal served on plantain leaf... or three days to be precise ;-) . I just remembered I had such a meal at home for Diwali lunch. And for once, like a good Andhraite, I got to dig into 'mountains' of rice! The flavour that the leaf adds to the hot rice and dal curry is unmatched!
The leaf in the picture is from our garden in Mysore.
