Chakka Varatti(Jackfruit Jam)

Am back after a long vaccation in India.We had a great time there..but i really missed blogging and my friends:-( So here am! Back to be with you all!
Malaysia,our new place is very nice, except the fact that, the climate over here is very hot,same like Kerala.That is the only thing i don't like.Everything else is so good .Everybody knows Malaysia is one of the famous tourist destinations. 20% of the population are indians! So its a home away from home for us. :-)
Malaysia is also famous for variety of food. Here we can find out Indian,chinese,Malay,Middle-Eastern,Korean,Western,Japanese and many other types of cuisines.
