Mango Dal Dosa & Mango Chutney

During childhood days, Tasting Raw mango with Red chilli powder and salt is the only fun during summer holidays. Markets used to be completely filled with varieties of mangoes and gives lovely fresh aroma while stepping in. I never knew that people in AP celebrate Mango festival every year. I was recently invited for a special Mango pooja, where mangoes are kept for pooja along with few recipes like mango rice, mango raas etc... And only after pooja ,distribution of mangoes and Thambulam to all guests, people eat mangoes but nowadays this custom was followed by only few families.  I felt very happy to attend and know about this interesting pooja and ofcourse, enjoyed my mango meal alot :)

Coming to my Today's post....
I love adding twist in my regular food and being its mango season, thought of trying out healthy dal dosa with a twist of adding grated raw mangoes to give a mild tangy taste. Mango chutney is also an easy to prepare recipe which can be served with dosa and personally I loved my leftover chutneys with curd rice.

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.

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.
