Another great thing about living in Mysore is the high quality but inexpensive fruit (esp compared to NZ). One of my first jobs was to stock the pantry with heaps of yummy fruit from the local fruit stall. The fruit here tastes so good, my favourite is the grapes (well washed) and pomegranates. I think next time I come to stay in Mysore I might bring a ‘whiz stick’ with me so I can make fruit smoothies at home. Yum!
