Avasara poondu podi / Avasara garlic podi

Whenever I find little time to prepare chutney for dosa/idly or when no power at home, used to prepare this avasara poondu podi. Very simple and can be prepared in a minute. Same like gun powder, have to mix this with gingelly oil and serve it with dosa/idly. This can be done using mixie or our olden days style mortar and pestle. We normally prepare this without peeling garlic.

Ingredients :

Handful of Garlic pods
1/2 Tbsp Chilli powder
Salt to taste

Method:

Using Mixie :

Add everything and grind coarsely.

Using Mortar and Pestle :


Clean and wipe mortar and pestle.
Add garlic pods and crush them.


Now add chilli powder and salt. Crush and grind coarsely.



Add gingelly oil and serve it with dosa/idly.

Sankara Meen Kuzhambu / Red Snapper Fish Curry

Tangy and aromatic flavor of the curry along with a delicious taste of fish, when served with hot rice gives a joyous feeling for a FISH LOVER like me ;) This four letter word makes me drool any time and love it in any form of cuisine.
Generally Meen Kuzhambu is served with hot rice but it tastes more delicious and yummy when served with Hot steaming Idlis for the next day. The more the time, fish swims in the curry, the taste increases. Flavor of the Fish gets blend well with the curry and enhances the taste and aroma, when served it for the next day. 
Sankara fish has its unique taste and flavor and personally, I feel it gives delicious taste when prepared as kuzhambu than fry. Even few Restaurants started serving "Nethi Vacha meen Kuzhambu and Idli" in their menu.  

Are you a Fish Lover ?? Then get ready to Drool ;)

1/2 Kg Sankara Fish / Red Snapper Fish, Cleaned and Washed2 Big Onions, Finely chopped2 Medium sized Tomatoes, Finely Chopped3 Green chillies, sliced

Ekadesi Kali

Happy Ekadesi Friends!

Vaikunta Ekadesi  is celebrated every year in the month of December or January and particularly on the 11th waxing moon that falls in the Margazhi month. Early morning of this day “the gate to Lord Vishnu 's inner Sanctum” is opened and in tamil we used to call it as “sorga vassal”. And according to our family culture, we used to fast on this  particular day by taking only tiffin items ( No rice allowed). Along with that, Kali is made as offering for god. And the next day of ekadesi is called as Dhuvadesi, on which fast is broken with the preparation of rice and curry with 21 vegetables. My mom prepares karakuzhambu with 21 veggies and according to my in laws place we prepare sambhar with 21 veggies.
