FAVOURITE RECIPE OF THE WEEK

Karthigai Pori - Karthigai Vella Pori Recipe

Image
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…

Paal Payasam - Milk Kheer

Paal Payasam - delicious creamy dessert with just 3 ingredients in your kitchen. Made with cow's milk, raw rice and sugar. When it comes to payasam dishes, we add ghee and cashew nuts. But for this payasam, no need to add these because it tastes so yummy without any ghee and cashew nuts.




The payasam is prepared with thick cow's milk for 45 to 50 minutes on low heat. The natural flavours in the cow's milk  blends beautifully well with the raw rice and when you drink it, you can feel the taste of the milk in every drop. No need to add any condensed milk or any other cream. Just milk and one hour of patience is enough for this payasam. The cooking method is also very simple and no need for any grinding or pressure cooking works. This paal payasam is thick, creamy and rich. The payasam should not be watery and the rice should not be firm. As the rice cooks and the milk reduces when it cools down so don't add any extra rice for this dish. Ponni raw rice works good for this payasam as it is slightly chewier when compared using other rice.
