A Little Spice is Extra Nice

Written by Sruthi Vijayan, Illustrated by Sanjana Ranjit

We can almost smell the coconut shards and red chillies as they sizzle. You will love this book and its grand culinary adventure. Sruthi Vijayan's words make our mouths water. Sanjana Ranjit's pictures are magnificent. The final picture of Annie and Appoopan finishing their marketing and eating Ela ada from the vendor, the salty sea breeze wafting in and the night balmy and beautiful? This is exactly the way you experience these nights and the pictures reflect this beautifully.
