Avial | Kerala Avial

Avial is a curry made with boiled vegetables. This is a traditional recipe from Kerala and southern part of Tamil Nadu. It has special place in Onam Sadya and in weeding meals too.
I learnt this recipe from my MIL and thanks to her. It is nutritious since the vegetables are not fried but boiled and very mild to taste-buds.
The Key of making a perfect avial is to get a perfect color combination of vegetebles with coconut masala, that should look like a semi-gravy state but not too dry. In TN it is served along with Adai(lentil crepe) Make this avial easily at home and relish with rice or adai.

Pudhina Rasam

Rasam is one of my favorite appetizer, which is traditional served in all south Indian meal as a second course, preceded and  followed by rice courses. This  really contains  full of health benefits with fresh homemade rasam podi. As we all know well that rasam is good for digestion and this is exactly true. I can't resist myself to have rasam immediately once prepared as a soup absolutely for its taste.
Pudhina rasam is totally different from regular parippu rasam. You need to grind fresh mint leaves with chilli, ginger, garlic to a fine paste. Adding this mint paste to boiling rasam gives out excellent aroma, that makes even your neighbor to come for your place. A very flavorful, tasty and easy to make rasam recipe.

Bhakri ~ Buiscuit Like Flat Bread

Bhakri is typically biscuit-like bread flavoured with ghee and cumin seeds and coarser than a roti/ chapati. It is mainly used in the cuisine of western and central India, especially in the states of Rajasthan, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Malwa, Goa and northern Karnataka. It has traditionally been the farmer's food which would be carried to the farm at the crack of dawn and make up for both breakfast and lunch. In modern days, bhakri has been replaced by rotis and phulkas but still enjoys its own fan-following.

Bhakri has dietary advantages. Being made from cereals, it is high in protein and fibre but at the same time very easy to digest. It is made of comparatively coarse flour and hence more nutritious than if made with fine flour. Although roti is now more commonly eaten, bhakri is still used for traditional Indian meals.  Here goes the recipe of Bhakri..

Making savouries are always a daunting task for the begginers. As we know experience makes it perfect, always we love to try making savories. Uppu Seedai is a mouthwatering savory made in south indian homes mainly during festivals. Its crackery texture and taste would make us eat more and more. I thought it is very difficult to make when I heard stories of Seedai bursting in many homes. So I got some advise from my mother and also searched all through the Internet to make a never bursting uppu seedai. And thank god I got a uppu seedai which didn't burst while I fried it and the taste was too good.  Follow all the steps carefully to get a burst free uppu seedai and a tasty savory. This is a favorite of lord Krishna and it is a must in many south indian homes during gokulastami and many other festivals too.
