MorKuzhambu_0682

Mor Kuzhambu or Butter Milk Kuzhambu is an easy and quick kuzhambu that most of u might know. Just sharing here, my version of it. Vegetables that can be added include okra, chow chow or poosanikai. Paruppu Vadai with Mor kuzhambu is a special and perfect combination. This goes well with steamed rice and paruppu usili or potato fry or seppankizhangu fry. I make it with vadai when time permits, else with veggies. Both tastes good. If nothing is available, I make it as a plain kuzhambu and temper it with vadagam too.

PoonduKulambu_0970

After all the festival food, we wanted a spicy kulambu like this Poondu Kulambu. This Poondu Kulambu is an easy, spicy & lip-smacking one which does not involve any grinding. Usually when it comes to kulambu with garlic my favourite would be this Puzhi Kuzhambu, but when I want to make a quick one I choose this Poondu Kulambu. Was just wondering how I missed to publish this recipe here all these days. Can be made very quickly with simple ingredients that are always available in the kitchen.

Rasam is always a comfort food, especially when somebody at home is down with cold. This Kollu Rasam is a healthy and easy rasam variety. It is a wonderful way to include Kollu in our diet. Nobody at home knew that it is included in this rasam, especially Chotu. So good for me, nobody complains :) This Kollu Rasam was so flavourful and unique as Kollu has a very good flavour of its own.

Mochai Murungai Kulambu – Mochai Kuzhambu

Mochai Kuzhambu is a lip-smacking, flavourful kulambu variety. I love mochai, but unfortunately we dont get fresh mochai here. So I always use the dry ones. Mochai by itself gives a wonderful flavour/taste to the kuzhambu. Adding drumstick enhances the taste even more. Somehow, this Mochai Kuzhambu tastes even better the next day!! Serves well with hot steamed rice and appalam. U dont need any other side dish as such.

Rasam is always a breeze to make. This Tomato Rasam is no exception to it. The quickest and the most favourite lunch menu for us would be rasam and potato fry. I normally do not store rasam powder as we prefer to have rasam with freshly ground powder. The freshly ground powder does add magic to the rasam. I just make sure to have some minor changes in my rasam powder every time I make it. This Tomato Rasam is also an easy, flavourful and quick rasam.

After all the festive food, we really wanted a simple and spicy meal. This Puli Milagai is one dish which is spicy, tangy and mildly sweet. It is easy to make and goes well with dal rice/paruppu sadham and even idli/dosa. We usually prefer the consistency to be a bit runny, U can make it thicker too. I served with rice, paruppu and Vazhakkai Puttu.

Tomato Gotsu or Thakkali Gotsu is an excellent side dish for idli/dosa. It is a very easy and quick fix sambar kind of side dish. When u run out of time, this can be made very quickly without much preparation work. Chotu is a big fan of hot, crispy dosa and sambar. I mostly make this tiffin sambar or this tiffin sambar. This Tomato Gotsu is a nice variation to it. Chotu calls this tomato sambar.

This pairs equally well with Ven Pongal too..

Rasam is always a comfort food for me. This Paruppu Rasam is yet another easy rasam variety that can be made in a jiffy. It is very popular in any South Indian household. With freshly ground powder this is a flavourful and refreshing rasam. Mostly when I make rasam, the side dish would be potato fry!! It was not different this time too. I served it with Baby Potato Roast (recipe coming soon)

Coconut Milk Stew is a truly divine side dish for appams, idiyappams, dosa or steamed rice. It is a very simple recipe, once you are done with the coconut milk part. Amma usually makes Potato Stew or with a combination of mixed vegetables. This time I tried with just butter beans and it was super yummy. This is perfect for a weekend brunch menu!! :)

Rasam is an all time comfort food. Its the quickest South Indian lunch menu with a simple curry. This lemon rasam is a good alternative to the normal tomato rasam. There is no tomato or tamarind in this rasam. Lemon is the hero of this recipe!! It gives a very refreshing flavour along the freshly ground rasam powder..
