As a food blogger, already I have posted few recipes for New Year (roundabout). But I have prepared a authentic and traditional food for our lunch. There are three main fruits for tamilians because these are the seasonal fruits during the Tamil New year time and called as “Mukkani (Three fruits)” – Maa (Mango), Pala (Jackfruit) and Vaalai (Banana). So based on these three fruits I have decided my menu, but I could not get this Jack Fruit and so dropped the recipe with Jackfruit.
