Vazhakkai Chips – Raw Banana Chips

April 3, 2016 Snacks / StartersTamil New Year RecipesVazhakkai/Raw Banana  8 comments

Vazhakkai Chips is an easy snack to make at home. I had been wanting to make Vazhakkai Chips since a long time. Unfortunately, the raw banana that we get here has a slight fruity flavour, may be because of the transportation time. But this time, it was really good so immediately made a batch of chips and it really vanished in no time. Not much effort is needed in making this, u just need to peel, slice, fry and season the Vazhakki Chips with salt and chilli powder.

Tomato Rasam – Thakkali Rasam

January 28, 2016 Rasam VarietiesTamil New Year RecipesTomato  12 comments

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.
