Sodhi Recipe – Tirunelveli Sodhi Recipe

July 18, 2020 CoconutKuzhambu 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.

Eating this on a banana leaf is a trick yet heavenly. Goes well with dosa as well.

February 9, 2017 Bachelor Friendly RecipesCoconutNavaratri SpecialRice Varieties  5 comments

Coconut Rice is a simple and yummy lunch box rice variety. It can be made in just 15 to 20 mins. Not much cooking skills are needed to make this. In the sense, it is perfect for bachelors. Am not a big fan of variety rice, but once in a while I like to have it. Puliyodharai is an exception though! Coconut Rice and potato fry is an unbeatable combo!
