Just to share with you....
After completing my 5th standard annual exams for that vacation my dad took us tour to many places in Kerala.We saw cochin too in that trip.There only I had Kushka for the first time.Those days I don't know much varieties. Since this names seems to be different and not a usual name it got a place in my mind. After that I didn't have chance to eat Kushka.When I was in 10th standard our tenent cooked kushka one day but I am not much impressed with it. After someyears when I was browsing I saw the easy way of making Kushka "Actually a spicy rice I can say".Still that kushka is not like the Kushka what I had in Cochin I like it because it has a different but good taste.
