உடைத்தமுட்டை கறி / Egg Drop Curry

This Drop In Egg Curry is my hubby’s favourite .  One can know the special feature of this curry with its name . Yes , it is dropping the eggs in the curry and cooking it . This tastes really very yummy and the cool thing is you don’t need an extra side for this curry. We enjoyed this meal and its so comforting and a filling lunch. Have it a try and let me know your views…

Traditional Poori Masala / Poori Masal / Poori Kizhangu

Restaurant menu  for breakfast starts with Idli ,Dosa ,Puri ,Vada , Pongal etc…. it goes like this…  If there is Poori then there should be Poori masala , this combination is fantastic. I do love my pooris with Kurmas as well as Coconut chutney . But hubby dear and  kid likes traditional side so I mostly go with this masal . You can also use this masala for making masala dosa or a stuffing for sandwich. Lets learn how to make traditional poori masala

Mutton Chukka varuval / Mutton Fry

Mutton Chukka is a famous item that attracts most of our (non-veg lovers) attention in hotels . My father used to buy mutton chukka whenever we buy briyani from outside . It will be pretty dry and tastes awesome . This is the way my mother makes chukka at home  . Mutton is not in our regular menu , we used to buy once in a month .The only thing that annoys me is the mutton I am getting here at Leeds is not as much good as we used to get in my home town .  But I can say that its not much bad as I used to it now . I love it more spicy so adjust as per your taste. Try it if you crave for something more spicy and enjoy this with your family . Don’t forget to let me know your views about this recipe . Lets go to the preparation….

உருளைக்கிழங்கு வறுகுழம்பு /Potato Curry

Potato Varu Kulambu is our family favourite curry . Potato is  a favourite vegetable not only for kids , almost to everyone . Even when I was young  the only vegetable I eat without hesitation are potatoes . Now my son also likes the crispy items made with potatoes . Potatoes are in rich in carbohydrates . Although fried items are not recommended for high cholesterol as per health issues .

But this is not a fried item so no worries to make this curry . I learnt this delicious curry from my grandma . Simple to make but tastes extraordinary . Generally I make it a bit spicy  , if you are a mild eater then adjust the spiciness as per your taste . This goes well with steamed rice and also with tiffin items . This is a good lunch box item too. Lets see how to make this curry….

மிளகாய் சட்னி / Red Chilli Chutney

Milagai chutney is a common South Indian side for tiffins . This really goes well with hot soft idlis and crispy dosas. Pearl onions / Sambar onions  are preferably used  but its so rare in my place so I used big onion . My mom generally don’t use onion and tomato to this spicy chutney and she grinds using a manual grinding stone ( ammikal ) . I too sometimes prefer without onion and tomato . In that case you should soak the chillies in hot  water for 10 mins and use some water to grind to a smooth paste . Sesame oil gives a nice flavour and is highly recommended as it reduces the spiciness . I love the combo of coconut chutney or sambar with this spicy side . Try this hot chutney with your idlis  , sure its a comforting side for all spicy lovers…

Coconut Chutney / Thengai Chutney

    This Coconut chutney is a basic chutney recipe that I make quite often . This is so great with hot idlis and dosas. My family’s favourite chutney . This is a very traditional basic South Indian side dish that is usually made everyday for tiffins. This is perfect not only with idli –dosas but also with poori , pongal , chapattis and with rice too. Before marriage I ask my mom to do chutney with red chillies but my hubby likes chutneys with only green chillies. My taste too differed, I am always sticking to green chillies now-a-days . I like sesame oil for tempering as the flavour is so good but you can use any oil you wish . I know this chutney is quite a usual preparation at most  of the houses but  I am posting this simple recipe for beginners and some of my North Indian friends who keep on asking me for the recipe. Now off to the chutney preparation…

Gramathu Kozhi Kulambu / Village Style Chicken Curry

    This is a very aromatic Chicken Kulambu / Curry made with fresh ingredients.Before days people used to make curries with freshly ground ingredients.Now-a-days too in villages some of them use fresh masalas.I still remember whenever we visited my aunts place in my childhood she will make chicken kulambu with freshly grounded masala that too made using hands.(i.e) using ammikkal.

Chicken Kurma / Kozhi Vellai Kurma

Hi friends ,

Today I come with a chicken recipe .This is one of the wonderful recipe I learnt from my mom.I am a big fan of this kurma from my childhood.Whenever my mom plan to do briyani for lunch she will prepare this kurma in large quantity for breakfast .We have it with soft idlis.Believe me this a delicious side for hot idlis.A person who normally has 4-5 will have nearly double the quantity with this yummy side .And we will have the rest of the  kurma with  briyani  for lunch.This is a good accomplishment with Briyani.Generally my mom prepares this kurma with mutton.But I don’t find soft mutton in my place so I used chicken.It tasted fabulous and my hubby loved it. Hope you too will love…Have a try and let me know your views…
