Write Tribe: Recalling Memories – Festival of Words – Day 1

A long long time ago, when MJ walked into the living room she saw her little girl all woozy in one of the chairs, a coffee mug in hand with remnants of a dark brown liquid from the vessel on the gas stove. She had gone to attend a call, putting her little one in charge of the kitchen! all of 10 and 10 minutes 😉 😉

A glass or two of butter milk and a sound sleep later, when her little girl came back to her senses.. MJ had another cup of the brown liquid ready for her.. this time, the colour of the brown was far lighter….MJ made her understand that the dark brown liquid she had was not the payasam proper. It was concentrated jaggery juice.

The brown looked lighter now. MJ told her she had diluted it with cups of coconut milk from the first and second pressing of the fresh coconuts she had seen in the kitchen in the morning. The light brown colour, with so many of its little eyes looking back at her invited her to taste it…

The little girl’s favourite, anybody from Kerala would call it, Parippu Payasam
