Memorable and special to me, we make this once a year in honor of a loved one’s death anniversary. Known as tevasam (memorial) food, the blend of sesame seeds and black peppercorns replaces the more traditional spice blends. Simple combinations create complex layers of flavors to remind us of our own multifaceted relationships with our loved one’s departed being.
