This coconut curry leaves thuvaiyal includes ingredients like grated coconuts, curry leaves, asafoetida, tamarind and red chillies. All the ingredients are handy and you can grind it within 5 minutes. For this chutney, the only work you have to do is grating the coconut. There are many frozen grated coconuts or coconut powder, but nothing tastes better like the fresh grated coconuts. We have to add a good amount of red chillies, tamarind and asafoetida powder as it gives the main flavour for this thuvaiyal. Plus, if we reduce any one of the ingredients, it won't taste good when we mix it with rice. Finally, use fresh and tender curry leaves for this thuvaiyal because it is the star ingredient in this dish.

Kadayam is a small village in the Tenkasi district. . Kadayam village is near to our hometown Ilanji and this vathakuzhambu is a famous dish in a mess. Last year Suresh sir, asked me to prepare this Kadayam vathakuzhambu in the Amul live cookery show. Before that I haven't tried this vathakuzhambu. Later, my Perippa arranged to get the recipe from his friend Kalyani Sivagaminathan Sir from Kadayam. Then he gave me their contact details. Their mess name is Kalyani Chettiyar mess. She shared the vathakuzhambu recipe clearly with the step by step instructions and cooking methods.

Ridge Gourd Kootu - Peerkangai Kootu

Ridge gourd kootu - one of my favourite kootu dish for lunch. Naturally ridge gourd has a soft texture which is suitable for kootu dishes. Mostly we don't add onions, tomatoes and garlic for kootu dishes. For this ridge gourd kootu I have added both chana dal and moong dal. As the ridge gourd has soft texture, it gets cooked easily in a vessel so need for pressure cooking. The dals must be cooked in pressure cooker for the smoother consistency which will be perfect for kootu dishes. My Grandma gave me this idea to include both chana dal and moong dal for this kootu because ridge gourd has high water content moong dal gives thickness to it. After cooking the ridge gourd, the kootu is followed by adding the dals and the coconut paste. The coconut based kootu dishes are popular in most Tirunelveli districts. We all like any  kootu with the combination of dals and coconut small onions cumin paste. In my opinion any kootu dishes must have a mild flavours with a medium thick consi
