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…

Sweet Corn Pakoda

Sweet corn pakoda - yummy evening snack for your kids. Usually we prepare masala corn for them with a very few ingredients and it is a favourite snack for kids.


Now a days sweet corns are available throughout the year, so you can prepare this easily without much effort. This pakoda is also a great starter for family get togethers and potlucks. I prepared this dish for 30 varieties Potluck dishes for the Aval Vikatan magazine. The sweet corn kernels are cooked in a pressure cooker for 10 minutes. Then the cooked sweet corn kernels are grounded in a mixer jar. I have tested the recipe without cooking the corns but this method tastes good. You can also steam the corns in a steamer. For this pakoda, just a little effort like cooking and grinding works are required, but you will get a tasty pakoda with different taste and flavours. After grinding the corns you have to mix all the remaining ingredients and then start preparing the pakodas. I have not used any other additional flavours like garamasala powder or chat masala powder, but you can use as you like it.
