On our recent trip to Wayanad, I picked up a bag of broken matta rice at a departmental store, so I could get home and try it out. Following an online recipe, with a few variations of my own, I used the broken matta rice to make vegetable upma in a pressure cooker, which turned out absolutely delicious! The upma was a delight, especially when eaten warm! Mildly spiced, lovely in taste, and a breeze to cook, the upma – known in Kerala as Podi Ari Upma – was a huge hit at home.

We had mixed feelings as we walked through Pookode Lake, one of the most famed tourist attractions in Wayanad, recently.

The beautiful, serene Karalad lake turned out to be one of my most favourite spots in Wayanad.

Since long, the husband and I had been craving for a vacation where we did absolutely nothing.
As we got a chance, recently, off we took to Wayanad, to stay in one of the many homestays there. To just be, and do nothing else.
It’s a different story that the bub didn’t let us just be at the homestay, and we had to head out for some sightseeing just to keep her entertained – not that we didn’t have fun in the process. 😛
Another story is that the drive back home to Bangalore from Wayanad took us 12 hours – the double of what it takes usually – thanks to crazy traffic. We ended up more exhausted than ever, but still, I am glad we managed to see a new place.
