The quality of a meal almost entirely depends on the side dishes and condiments that are served with it. They pretty much define your food! For a typical South Indian everyday lunch it will have saaru/rasams like menasina saaru (pepper rasam), carrot saaru and sambars like sorekayi kootu, Mangalore southekayi sambar. Some sabudana happala to go with, yum!
Then there are side dishes like a palya and some saasme/raitha. Pickles and papads and happala must feature with these kind of dishes. We used to make happala and sandige at home every year during the summer holidays. A mango based lunch followed by making these happala and sandige used to be a big family affair. Pickling also was a very important activity to bring the whole family together. ... “Sabbakki Happala | Sabudana Fryum | Sabudana Papad”
