We had to invite a newly wed couple for lunch, which was done on the 25th December.The menu was samabar, kootu, thoran(carrot,cabbage and beans), thayir pachadi, rasam, pappadam and semiya payasam.
All these, in between our strenous cleaning exercises. Thankfully, there weren't many cockroaches. We had put a mixture of boric powder, sugar and wheat flour, made into small balls in all the cupboards. Once again this mixtuer proved to be very effective in keeping them away.
