Pineapple Ada Pradaman

Ada Pradaman, a yummy and finger licking desert is famous in god's own country which is prepared during festivals. Its is a creamy dessert prepared using milk and jaggery.

Watermelon Rind Mor Kuzhambu / Watermelon Rind Buttermilk Kuzhambu

After posting couple of recipes using watermelon rind, here comes my third recipe using rind in buttermilk curry which is called as Mor kuzhambu. Mor kuzhambu is a famous south Indian kuzhambu which has a lovely flavor of Jeera and ginger with a mild tangy taste. This is served with hot rice along with some veg curries and preferably spicy curries to balance the taste bud. Urad dal vadai buttermilk kuzhambu (Vadai pota mor kuzhambu) is one of our favorite recipe and apart from vadai, vegetables like pumpkin, brinjal or Ash gourd can also be added.

Palkova Poli

It tasted very delicious and was juicy after cooking due to the melted kova. Adding saffron is optional and I have added for the flavor and color.
