FAVOURITE RECIPE OF THE WEEK

Karthigai Pori - Karthigai Vella Pori Recipe

Karthigai Pori - a classic prasadam prepared for karthigai festival. This karthigai pori looks different from the regular rice pori and you can get these pori during karthigai tamil month in pori shops.


They are one my favourite, favourite...... prasadam dishes. This tastes so good on the next day because the jaggery will enter each poris after cooling down. For this karthigai pori dish you will need the nel pori, jaggery, black sesame seeds and coconut. To prepare jaggery syrup, I recommend to use pagu vellam (jaggery) which is dark brown in colour because it gives a nice taste and colour to this dish. You have to dissolve the jaggery with little water and then strain it if needed. Then continue boiling the syrup on low heat, stirring occasionally, until it reaches to a thick consistency. Watch your jaggery syrup closely as it gets thicker or browns quickly. Before preparing the jaggery syrup, add the nelpori in a big container or in a vessel. Add the roasted sesame seed…

Peanut Sundal - Verkadalai Sundal - Easy and healthy evening snack

Sundals are the perfect dish for an evening snack or a midday snack. They will come together quickly and easily, and perfect for all ages. When it comes to making snacks, many of us feel tired to spend more time in the kitchen. This happens to me everytime so a lot of times I make sundals for a quick evening snack.

Raw peanuts are one of those nuts that are so easy to cook. When compared to other sundal dishes, this raw peanut sundal is an addictive snack for me because of its little crunch. Many of us enjoy the hot salted peanuts cooked along with the shell. For this sundal if you are using fresh peanuts,it would be ready within 20 minutes. If you are using older peanuts, might require few hours of soaking. I have not included any other masalas for this sundal, just a handful of fresh grated coconuts. You may adjust the seasonings to your preference.
