Channa Samosa Chaat and My India Vacation

          I know,you all will be wondering ,where I dissappeared. After some terrible initial days of sickness,my kids are thoroughly enjoying the vacation in "The Indian way".Rohith and Ashwath are   pampered by their grand parents.I am completely in rest.No jobs to do ,except eating and roaming around.Poor hubby is finding difficut in cooking and managing  our house in US .
            Being in Tirunelveli. we have visited evergreen "Kutralam", India's southern end "Kanyakumari",the most gorgeous "Paal aruvi" in the border of Kerala,beautiful "Manimuthaaru " falls ,sacred "Nava tirupathi","Tiruchendur","Vana Tirupathi".The list goes on.In between my shoppings ,which is  the most interesting part.Completely bored of getting everything in one shop and no bargaining in  US.Love to roam around the city and visiting so many shops,bargaining ,drinking the most sweetest drink"Karumbnu Chaaru " aka Sugarcane juice.This vacation is power packed.Will update you with some more experiences in my mext post.Enjoy this chana samosa chaat ,from my draft.
