Accompaniments or Side Dishes - An Introduction
Most of the following items described here are used as accompaniments or side dishes in most homes in Yarlpanam. These are generally home made during summer months and when vegetables are available in plenty and cheap. They are made with utmost care and stored for future use. They are preserved and used until next season in a year’s time. Therefore good care and time is taken to make sure they are preserved well to last longer. Anything that is stored for a longer time should not have any contamination with water or moisture and generally stored in dry places and away from light.
