Arisi Paruppu Sadam - Dhal and Rice Recipe

Arisi Paruppu Sadam is one of  my and amma's all time favorite, but since dad won't like it we prepare rarely when dad is not there for meal. Even it is done for dinner I won't at all compliant. I usually eat little more when ever amma prepares Arisi Paruppu Sadam. I wanted to post it and finally the day as came. Yesterday night dad went for a function so me and amma prepared Arisi Paruppu Sadam and enjoyed our dinner. This is done in the way amma prepares. Than amma my periamma will cook good so after i learnt the recipe from her surely i will update.

Try doing Arisi Paruppu Sadam and enjoy with your favorite combinations. Are you are bored of your regular variety rice? Then prepare Arisi Paruppu Sadam and have a difference.

Pazham Pori - Ethakka Appam - Ripe Plantain Fritters

Pazham Pori is my favorite Kerala recipe. Usually Kerala cuisine will have an unique taste, among all the Kerala recipes Pazham Pori is the most I love. It is also known as Ethakka Appam or Ripe Plantain Fritters.
One busy morning in office I took tea break and had Pazham Pori with Coffee in near by tea shop, that is the first time I tasted Pazham Pori from that point I became fan for this. What a awesome combination. You will feel fulled for a long time. If you are bored with our usual bajji's, just try this Pazham Pori and enjoy the taste.

To make Pazham Pori, Nethra Palam is used. When I planned to make Pazham Pori, I bought Nethra Palam and kept  for nearly 10 days. Since the matured Nethra Palam gives good taste. The outer layer should turn black colour. To say the truth if we see black coloured banana we will feel that it was not good to eat but it is totally opposite in  Nethra Palam. The black coloured Nethra Palam only gives great taste.

I know it was long time i have not updated my blog, because i was held up with my project work in college. Yesterday evening my first project review got over. I prepared this and packed to college, after a horrible review excellent Pazham Pori filled all our stomach.

Wheat Rava Upma - Gothumai Rava Upma

Among all the upma's, Wheat Rava Upma is the most healthiest recipe. During my childhood i wont like it but now a days i am becoming fan for Wheat Rava Upma. Since my Patti is diabetic patient, she used to make it often. I  have to mention about one of my Mama (Mr.Varadaraj) in this post when ever i hear a word of Gothumai Rava Upma he will hit my mind. He is the deadly fan of Wheat Rava Upma. If we go out to hotel also he will order Wheat Rava Upma. He wont at all complaint to eat it all times and all days. He specially loves Wheat Rava Upma, which is prepared by amma. But i love appa's preparation so we both prepared this Wheat Rava Upma hence this post is more special to me. I will eat along with Curd and Pickle. Amma will have along with any Kulambu or Rasam. Appa will have along with Sugar and Banana.Mixture also tastes good with Wheat Rava Upma. Even with ghee also it tastes good. Try doing Gothamai Rava Upma in home and share your favorite combination.

Thayri Thalippu

Thayri Thalippu is served as side dish for idly and dosa. It will actually require a minute time to prepare. Very very easy and different yummy side dish. If you want to show variety in side dishes you can prepare Thayri Thalippu as one. I hope amma did it twice or thrice (a long back), appa did't like so she stop doing it.  My Periyamma will do this often since I like it when ever i go to her home she will make this along with other side dishes. 

I always wonder how the simple curd turns into yummy side dish in a minute. 

Egg Cutlet

Egg is my thambu's favorite. Any thing in Egg he likes very much. I won't eat egg thought where ever i see egg recipe i read it because if i make it to my thambu means he will enjoying eating it. I love to cook egg for him. While cooking egg he will come and stand near me in kitchen and help me for cooking. He is really a chatter box he will be keep on talking. I am the one who enjoy's every thing he does even naughty things. When ever i cook egg i will remember him but this Egg Cutlet is made for my dad. One rainy evening he enjoyed this Egg Cutlet with a cup of tea. I am missing you thambu (Shaaswath)....

Egg Cutlet has many shades. Each people will do in their own way. This is my first try. I did it very simple with the ingredients i have in my hand. I will be keep on updating all Egg recipe's in all the shades because i am preparing my self to make many tasty egg recipe's. One day definitely i will do all to my dear thambu.....

Idli Upma

Idli Upma is an excellent recipe with the leftover idli. In our home its totally opposite we make idli to prepare Idli Upma. Amma likes Idly, appa and me are dosa fan's but we both love this Idli Upma. Usually amma will make batter in morning's so the next day dinner will be surely Idli Upma. I always wonder how this Idli Upma gets more taste than Idli. Idli Upma is my all time favorite. I wont at all complaint to have it even for 3 times a day. It sounds unique because the bored idli will change into tasty upma in min's without more effort and ingredients. If you feel bored or feeling lazy to cook side dishes, you can make plain Idli  into tasty Idli Upma and enjoy. You can serve this Idli Upma in snacks time too.

Kudal Kulambu

I could say my passion and interest towards cooking is taking me to all the extents, which i taught I wont do. Since I am vegetarian i wont even like the smell of non veg. Usually i will make my mom to prepare food for me before eating non veg on Sunday's.When the whistle comes while pressure cooking the kudal i will shout at mom, while i am cooking Kudal Kulambu my mom was saying all those things i did. Among all non veg recipes the smell of Kudal is the most i hate, but now after i started cooking i cleaned the Kudal and made Kudal Kulambu. Even i can't believe on me. Yes !! its me all because of my cooking passion and interest.Its for my mom and dad, they just love this Kudal Kulambu a lot. They won't complaint if this Kudal Kulambu fills their tummy on Sunday's.

I have heard from amma saying, my grand ma (dad's mom) will prepare Kudal Kulambu on Sunday morning's and serve along with Idly. Even i have seen in many non veg hotels, Idly and Kudal Kulambu is their most featured recipe. Of course Idly and Kudal Kulambu is the heavenly made combination. You can't even point out a single non-vegetarian saying no this combination.Thought many new dishes are cooked in non veg, idly and Kudal Kulambu is an unbeatable Tamil Nadu's Tradition non veg recipe.

When ever i think of this recipe my attai will comes first into my mind. Because she will say,she feels more energetic after eating Kudal kulambu and i think that is true. Kudal Kulambu has many health benefits. It increases your blood count very soon and so on. 

Kudal Kulambu is very easy to cook so try doing it and eat along with Idly in morning and with rice in afternoon.
