Paruppu Rasam

 

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 25 minutes
Makes: 3 persons
Recipe Category: Lunch
Recipe Cuisine: Indian
Recipe Reference. Mrs. Shanthi Vijaykrishnan

My husband and my elder daughter Sanvi loves Paruppu Rasam. Sanvi likes any dishes that has dal in it. I mix few drops of ghee in a cup of dal and give it to Sanvi almost everyday. So everyday I have to cook fresh dal. Whenever Sanvi does not have the mood to eat dal, I use the remaining dal to make Paruppu Rasam. It is very easy to make just like a normal rasam. Usually, Rasam will make you hungry soon whereas this Rasam will not make you that hungry. I have Paruppu Rasam with Appalam, Potato Fry and Brinjal Pirattal.

Ingredients

Toor dal (thuvaram paruppu) – 1/4 cup

Tomato – 1

Salt – 1 teaspoon

Tamarind – Small gooseberry size

Turmeric powder (manjal thool) – 1/4 teaspoon

Garlic cloves (poondu pal) – 3 nos.

Eggless Tutti Frutti Cookies

Most often, I bake cupcakes for my elder daughter Sanvi. She loves Banana Muffin and Carrot Cupcake. I have not experimented much with cookies. My husband loves Tutti Frutti and cherries. Whenever he goes to buy grocery, he will come home with cherries and tutti frutti. Sometimes, I have them in abundance. Four days back, I wanted to use tutti frutti in cakes or cookies. Then I came up with this recipe which I had written long back in my recipe book. I can never forget how I made this cookie. I surprised Sanvi and my hubby with this cookie. They fell in love with it. Now my hubby says that whenever he buys tutti frutti, I have to make this cookie for him. Hmmm…I will never get bored baking this cookie.

5. After 40 minutes, preheat oven to 320 F. Take the log out from the freezer and keep it outside for 10 minutes. Unwrap the dough and cut into 5mm to 6mm slices. Arrange the slices on a parchment paper with enough spaces between the slices. Bake for 10 – 15 minutes until you get an aroma of the cookies and also till the edges of the cookies turn light brown. Now remove the cookies from the oven, transfer them to a wire rack, and let the cookies cool down completely. The cookies initially would be soft but when it cools down, the cookies will become firm. Store the cookies in an airtight container.

Notes.

  • You can add roasted nuts/ chocolate chips/ dry fruits or even candied cherries instead of Tutti Frutti.
  • If the dough is very sticky, you can add some flour to it.
  • Use a sharp and plain knife to cut the cookies or else the cookies will crumble and will not be soft.
  • Do not cut the log into very thin slices as it may crumble and get overcooked.
  • The cookies would cook even more faster if you are using silver foil instead of parchment paper.

Mango Pachadi

When I buy Mangoes, the first thing I would do is to make this Mango Pachadi. My hubby loves it too. Sometimes, I make using jaggery, and if I do not have jaggery at home, I make using sugar. Yes, while making this recipe I did not have jaggery so I made using sugar.The pachadi with jaggery will be little dark in color.  I will post the jaggery version soon. I still have one mango left in the refrigerator. I eat this with Sambar, Rasam, Mor Kuzhambu and sometimes even with Curd Rice. I usually like to eat it with sambar. During the season of mangoes, I prefer to eat this dish rather than drinking mango juice.

Black Chickpeas Sundal | Kondakadalai Sundal | Karuppu Mookadalai Sundal

Karuppu Mookadalai Sundal

Preparation Time. 5 minutes
Soak Time. 8 hours
Cook Time. Less than 20 minutes
Serves. 2
Recipe Category. Main course
Recipe Reference. Maalai Malar

I make sundal often at home mostly as a tea time snack. With black chickpeas, I make a Black chickpeas curry and sundal. Though I prefer white chickpeas, I still make it often as it is very healthy. I make this sundal once in two weeks. I’ve seen my friends serving this Sundal as an accompaniment to Rice. My mom and mother-in-law make this sundal during festive seasons and we have it along with payasam (Pacha Payir Payasam and Javvarisi Semiya Payasam). You know how I eat this sundal, picking and eating it one by one. Till date, my hubby asks me how do I have so much patience to eat like this. My hubby finishes it off in 5 minutes, whereas myself, will eat it forever. During my childhood days, I used to eat this sundal at my own style and my brother Vignesh would grab my Sundal and finish it off. He would simply say, “if you eat it slowly, then I have to finish it off.” Then we would start fighting. Whenever I eat this Sundal, I will cherish those nice memories.
