GROCERY LIST (South Indian Cooking)

In our homes we buy provisions every month. When the month begins we get the grocery which our family needs. The word “Annachi” flashes in my mind when I think of the word grocery. When I was small the provision list will be prepared by my mother and send to Annachi shop and he will send the things home. But in today’s life style buying provisions or grocery for the family has almost turned to be a family outing. Today there are super markets or stores where we get all under one roof.
We have different varieties of products,various brands with different composition also. We can choose as per our requirement and also buy according to our budget only thing we should have a list of what we are going to buy.
Instead of posting a recipe this time I thought of giving you all a list this will be useful for beginners.
Sentimentally when my mother writes the list she starts with turmeric powder and naturally I too follow the same. The balance of some provisions can be used in the following month accordingly one can reduce the quantity. By usage one can find out the actual requirement.One can adjust the list depending on the family’s taste and habit.
