Karuveppilai Thuvaiyal – Karuveppilai Thogayal

July 27, 2020 Chutney Recipes  No comments

Karuveppilai Thuvaiyal is a healthy & easy recipe to go with rice or even idli/dosa. I prefer consuming curry leaves in the form of this thogayal or thokku rather than adding it in dishes just for fragrance and discarding it while eating 🙂 And I must mention, curry leaves are expensive here, so no wasting! Karuveppilai or curry leaves is known for its health benefits. Its rich in iron. Thuvaiyal is meant to be thick rather than a normal chutney. Try this Karuveppilai Thokku recipe if interested.

Sodhi Recipe – Tirunelveli Sodhi Recipe

July 18, 2020 Kuzhambu Varieties  No comments

Sodhi is a very rich coconut milk based recipe which is native to our place (Tirunelveli). This is a must in our marriages. It is usully made on the next day of the wedding known as Maru Veedu. Our weddings are like a 3 day festival and the highlight is this Sodhi Sapadu. This is served with Inji Thuvaiyal (recipe coming next), potato fry & potato chips. Totally divine. A tip for eating this which many are not aware – It is meant to be eaten like Rasam Rice and not like Sambar Rice. Meaning you must pour more sodhi generously than the amount of rice. Eating this on a banana leaf is a trick yet heavenly. Goes well with dosa as well.

Paneer Lababdar is a creamy, delicious paneer recipe which is quite different from the usual Paneer Butter Masala. I came to know about this recipe from a friend. We all really loved it.

Goes well with roti, naan & pulao varieties. Do check out the video..
