Recipe: Mango Curry with Rice
Today was another great day in Kochi. We took a Backwaters tour of the Keralan swamp lands that are home to thousands of coconut, mango, pineapple, and banana trees. The wild growth also serves as the home of many different spice plants, which is always fun for me to see because I love spices!
The backwaters tour was an adventure of a lifetime. It was as beautiful as something you picture out of the movies. We were on an old country boat, journeying through the freshwater channels just inland from the Arabian Sea. All around us we were surrounded by giant palm trees holding coconuts and pineapples. Intermixed with these trees were banana trees, mango trees, small fishing villages, and beautiful spice plantations. It was more beautiful than anything I have ever seen!
