Omakka (Papparakka) thoran is a common side dish for rice in kerala. More than that it's very economic too. Whenever i think of this dish my grand mother's image will com into my mind. She had not used any scraper but with knife she finely chopped it. The taste of the thoran lies in its uniform chopping. She will take lot of time to prepare this dish. It was a common curry in our childhood. I still remember the entire journey to this dish starting from the plucking of Papparakka. It's very interesting to hear stories from her childhood. It's the taste the smell and the care never dies. I really miss you a momma.
