Aarthii, may be you baked in very high heat.
Normally, I will put in about 150 degrees C.
You have to preheat the oven first.
The oven must be hot when you put in the bread.
We do not use grill to bake the bread.

I am happy your roti came soft in the dosai kal.

for the ISKCON society.
If I am not mistaken, their headquarters is in
Old Klang Road.
I have lot of relatives involved in this movement.
They do not use onions and garlics.
Normally they will wear a small tulasi malai, around their neck.
My nephew who is a doctor, has a small kudimi at the back of his head.
Pay a visit once when you are free.

[tscii:9fd83c9432]More Food for Gods.

While the use of jaggery covers nearly all of the Indian subcontinent, it is particularly famous in South Indian recipes. At the Sree Padmanabha Swamy Temple at Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum), Kerala, one of the 108 Vaisnava Divya Desams, jaggery is a prominent ingredient in one of the main bhoga preparations offered to the Deity, Lord Mahavisnu on Anantasesa. Called Unni Appams, these spongy sweets are composed of rice flour, banana, jackfruit and jaggery, fried in ghee to a crispy golden brown. In Malayalam, 'unni' means small and 'appam' means rice cake.

Unni Appams

Ingredients:

Rice Flour - 2 cups
Maida (regular flour) - 1/2 cup
Jaggery - 1/2 cup
Ripe Banana - 1
Ripe Jackfruit - ½ cup
Shredded coconut - 1cup
Ghee 2 Tbl.

Fry the shredded coconut to a light brown and set aside. Heat 1 cup of water and add the jaggery to melt it. In another bowl mix the rice flour and maida. Add the melted jaggery along with the coconut and mix well. When the batter cools, fold the mashed banana and jackfruit into the batter, which should be the consistency of a dosa batter. Add a little milk or water if needed to get the desired consistency.

Lightly cover and let the batter sit for about 6 hours, or overnight. To cook, use ghee to lightly grease the holes of an unni appam pan or idli cooker. Fill with batter and cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes, then flip, cooking both sides to a crispy golden brown. Drain on paper, and offer warm.

Variations: You can add cardamom to the batter for a nice addition. If you want a lighter appam, add a pinch of baking powder to the batter just before cooking. You can also begin with raw rice, well soaked and mashed. This will give a denser appam. [/tscii:9fd83c9432]

August 12th is Aadi puram, also prayers in the house.
Aadi ends on the 16th of August.

August 20th is Varalakshmi nombu, usually celebrated with early morning prayers, and ending with villakku pooja at home.

August 24th is Aavani Avitam.
The last is August 28th Maha sangadahara sathurthi

So I will be very busy for the whole of this month.
Thanks, Kugan98

NOV anneh thank you very much for the unni appam recipe.
Anneh there are many ways to do this appam.

Anneh it did not strike me to use jack fruit in the unni appam.
I am sure the aroma would be great.

NOV anneh, normally in Kerala, they do not ferment the batter for the unni appams. They only use rice flour, no other flour is added.
I have tried their method, and always the unni appams are hard.

One more fact is that, if you are fermenting the batter, adding all purpose flour, coconut and bananas, you need not add any baking powder to the batter, you will get super soft unni appams.

NOv anneh, I do it in two ways, one is that, grind the rice flour with the jaggery, add in cardamom powder, add in roasted coconut strips. (Cut the coconut into pallu, pallu, roast in ghee and add to the batter.) little salt and ferment the batter. The next day do as how you will do unni appam.
You will get soft unni appams.

The other method is to add grated coconut, bananas, and all purpose flour. Need not ferment the batter, you will get soft unni appams.
I will post the second method of how to do the unni appam.

Thanks NOV anneh, let me try your method also.
Kugan98

Friends, we should do these types of palagarams, once in a way so that our children will not forget them.
Otherwise slowly this too will become disappearing palagarams.

UNNI APPAM

Ingredients:
2 over ripe bananas fully mashed
1 cup rice flour
½ cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup grated coconut
½ cup jaggery (more if you like sweet)
¼ tsp cardamom powder
Little salt
Little ghee

Method:

Add the jaggery to 1 cup of water.
Heat a little and dissolve it.
Strain and keep aside.

When the syrup is cold, add the rice and all purpose flour.
Add also the grated coconut, cardamom powder and salt.
Lastly add in the mashed bananas.
Now mix everything to a batter. It should be like idli batter.

Now heat a kulipaniyara chatty.
Pour little ghee, fill the holes, ¾ full with the batter.
When it is cooked at the bottom, flip over and cook the
other side. You will get soft sweet banana appam.

Those without the kulipaniyara chatty,
Can pour spoonful of the batter in hot oil and fry them.

kugan,

there are many varieties of making unni appam, normally bananas are used, jack fruit will nice smell. never tried with jackfruit.

mouth is watering, we get unni appam as prasadam in ayyappan temple. keralites when they come from vacation, bring unni appam, all will be in different taste. they told me that they will fry in coconut oil, they will fill oil in the panniyaram kadai and fry appam. :D

kadalai curry:
-------------

black kadalai - 1 cup soaked and pressure cook 4 to 5 whistles.
then add salt 1 tsp and boil for 5 mins.

in a kadai, add 2 tsp of oil, add 2 big onion finely chopped, curry leaves few , fry nicely for 3 mins.

then add 1 1/2 tsp ginger-garlic paste coarsely ground and fry for a while.

then add 1 big size tomato finely chopped and fry for 3 minutes, till the tomato mashes nicely.

now add 1/2 tsp chilli powder, 1 tsp dhania powder, 1/4 tsp of turmeric powder and fry till raw smell goes out of it.

now add 1 to 1 1/2 tsp of mutton masala powder ( i use aachi mutton masala) otherwise curry powder , fry till nice aroma comes out of it. sprinkle little water if the curry comes very dry.

then add little pudhina, coriander leaves chopped.

then add cooked black channa with water cover and cook for sometime.

(optional: we can even add soya chunk or soya granules in this stage).

now grind, 1/4 tsp of fennel seeds, 2 tblsp of cooked black channa, 2 tblsp of coconut grated, one medium size onion and grind it to a fine paste.

now add this paste to the curry, check for salt allow it cook for 5 mins.

this goes well with chappathi, puri, putti. some people likes with kerala parotta.

this is a favourite dish in our house. i tasted this curry in saravana bhavan. they served for parotta and puttu.
immediately i came and tried in our house. we all enjoyed this dish.

aarthi u try and let me know.

i am leaving tomorrow evening from here. so i will away from the thread for atleast 10 days.

May be 20th of this month i will join u friends (hopefully, i will get to access the thread by 20th).

Hi selvika , jus logged in to have a look at our sweet thread
Kadalai curry is so impressive , loved it ..My roomie is a keralite and she prepares it exactly like you do , except for the fact that she adds curry powder or chicken masala powder instead of the mutton masala and she skips the grinding part
She does mash the boiled chana to add to the consistency of the gravy

Puran Poli Sweet Bread (Bobbatlu)

Ingredients:

Chana dal, 1 cup
Jaggery, 1 cup (powdered)
Cardamom, 2 pods powdered fine
Saffron, a pinch
Camphor, a tiny pinch
Maida/sooji, fine (flour), 1 cup
Ghee, 1/2 cup

Pressure cook the chana dal and drain off the excess water. (Save the liquid for use in dal or another prep.) Spread the dal on paper towels to remove the excess water. Once it's dried a bit, grind it into a fine paste without adding water. Set aside.

In a bowl mix the flour with enough water to make a smooth dough, like chapati dough. Smear the ball with a little ghee and cover, and let the dough rest for 30 minutes.

To make the stuffing, put the jaggery in a pan with no liquid, and heat, stirring, until it dissolves. Add the chana dal paste and mix until smooth. Add the cardamom, camphor and saffron, and cook until the mixture darkens a few shades. Set aside and once cool, make small balls of the mixture, and set aside.

Finally, make small chapati from the flour dough, using flour, fingers and plastic wrap or parchment to get manageable rounds. Put one of the sweet balls in the center of the rolled chapatti and fold the four sides in to cover it completely. Using your fingers or roll back into a flat chapatti shape. Heat ghee in a tava or griddle, and fry until both sides are crisped and golden brown. Add ghee as needed to keep from sticking.

Sweet Kolakattai Dumplings

Ingredients:

Rice flour 1 cup
Jaggery (Crushed) 1/2 cup
Grated coconut 1 cup
Gasagasa (Poppy Seeds) 1 tablespoon
Raisins 1 tablespoon
Cashews 1 tablespoon
½ tsp cardamom
scant grains of pachakarpooram (edible camphor)
few scrapes of fresh Nutmeg
1/8 tsp Mace (Jaypathre)

Preparing the dough: (Called the Kali/Kazhi). Boil 1-1/2 cups of water in a thick-bottomed pan. Add one tablespoon of ghee and a pinch of salt. Add the rice flour slowly, all the while stirring the mix, for about three to four minutes, and prevent lumps from forming. The whole mix should come out into a non-sticky lump, which is now the famous Kali. The quantity of water required in preparation of Kali depends on the type of rice flour. In the case where the Kali is not fully cooked add a little more boiling water and stir it. Let it cool. Stuffing: Mix grated coconut with filtered and clean jaggery syrup and other seasonings and stir it well in a thick bottomed pan on low heat, till it is non sticky. Add raisins and roasted cashew nuts. When cool enough to handle, make it into small balls. Kneed the Kali well and make small balls. Form a small cup shape of the Kali balls with a thin wall, (flour your fingers) and insert the stuffing and form into a Kolakattai shape (like a dumpling). This is the trickiest part of the whole job. Steam the dumplings for five minutes in a preheated, Idly cooker or steamer without the weight added.

sonu gopi: modakam is sanskrit for kozhukkattai. In the north it is called modakam or modak. In Tamilnadu we call it kozhukkattai or modakam. It is prepared in different forms depending on which part of India or which part of Tamilnadu you are from! :) It is prepared for piLLIayaar chathurthi. piLLaiyaar is known as modakapriyan(m) ! :)

Thanks Rajraj....for your info....but wat Nov has shown is how its said here in M'sia - kozhukkattai and Modhakam. I remember during my younger days my Ceylonese tamil friends (Sri Lankan tamils) they make this very often. Both Kozhukkattai & Modhakam but I always go for Modhakam....some how the Kozhukkattai is not impressive enough for me...I have watched their mothers leaving their finger prints behind on the dough before steaming them. Its not as soft as Modaks... :lol:

I do not like the brown sugar covering the dough but thinking of the soft white Modhakam with its lovely fillings itself makes me hungry quite often.... :oops:

So Ganesha is known as Modhakapriyan in Malayalam..... :ty:

The soft white shell filled with puraNam is called kozhukkattai in our area of Tamilnadu.

modhaka priyam is Sanskrit ! MalayaLam has borrowed a lot of Sanskrit words as did Tamil and other languages! If you are familiar with the Dikshithar composition Mahaa Ganapathim, there is a line - "mooshika vaahana modhaka priyam"! :)

Friends I asked around for the meanings of Keema and Kaima.
I might be wrong.
Well according to my survey, Keema means minced meat.
Chicken or mutton.

Kaima means to chop up.
That is if you stare at a rowdy, he will say
"enna naina moraikera, unna kaima panniduven :lol: "


So I promised NOV anneh that I will cook kaima idli for him.
I will post the recipe soon.

There are two types of kaima idli.
I will post both the version.

The much awaited butter murukku.
I hope you are happy Gulabi.
Kugan98



BUTTER MURUKKU

Ingredients:

1 kg rice
350 grms roasted channa dal (pottu kadalai)
60 grms butter
1 tbs cumin seeds
Salt to taste
Boiled cooled water water
Oil to fry.

Method:

Soak the rice for 4 hours.
Drain dry a little and make it into powder
Dry roast the flour a little, sieve and keep aside.

Dry grind the roasted channa dal.
Sieve and mix with the rice flour.

Add in the cumin seeds, butter, salt and enough water.
Make it into a plaiable dough. Like chapathi flour.

Heat the oil in a wok. Use a one star disc of your achu.
Fill the murukku ural. Now press the dough directly into the oil.
The murukku will break off into about 2 inches in length on its own.
That is the correct patham for the dough.

Fry till cooked and remove it to a kitchen roll paper.
Let it cool well before storing in a tin.
This type of butter murukku will melt in your mouth.

KAI MURUKKU

Ingredients:

3 cups rice flour
¼ cup roasted urad dal flour
½ cup butter
1 ½ tbs oil (heated)
1 tbs cumin seeds
1 tbs sesame seeds
A pinch of asafoetida powder
Salt to taste
Enough water
Oil for deep frying

Method:

Mix the flours, salt, asafoetida powder, cumin seeds and sesame seeds well. Rub the butter in using tips of your fingers to incorporate the fat well. Add in the heated oil, mix well.
Add water to the above gradually and knead to a soft dough. Cover with a lid, not allowing the air to dry the dough.
Spread a clean cloth on the counter .
Take a small ball of the dough in your palm. Grease the tips of your fingers with oil. Roll the dough between your fingers to a small rope. Fixing one end of the rope as the starting point, twist simultaneously like a chain. Turn your hand in a circular motion, dropping the twisted rope on the sheet. Go two or three rounds thus. Seal the other edge to the chain.

Repeat with few more.
Heat oil in a pan. When the oil is very hot, but not nearly smoking, drop gently the prepared murukkus into the oil. Drop as many as the oil will hold, yet the murukkus can move freely in the oil and cook.
Deep fry until the murukkus are golden brown. Remove from oil and drain in a colander.
Cool well before storing.

[tscii]Aarthii, got your message. Take care.

Here is the recipe:


MOCK POP CORN CHICKEN

Ingredients:

(A)
1 cup soaked boiled soya chunks
½ cup of tinned button mushrooms
2 pips garlic
½ inch ginger piece
½ tsp black pepper powder
2 small shallots
1 tbs green chillies
¼ tsp cumin powder.
Salt to taste

(B)
2 tbs all purpose flour
2 tbs corn flour


2 cups of bread crumbs
1 cup thick milk
Oil for frying

Method:
Use a grinder and grind all the ingredients in (A)
Do not use water.
The mixture will not be very fine.
Now add in the ingredients in (B)

Use your hand and mix it well. (penanchi)
Add little more flour if needed, also sprinkle little
water if needed.
See that it can be made into small balls.
The size of big marbles.

Now heat the oil in a non stick pan.
Dip the balls into the milk, remove and roll it in the bread crumbs.
Do this twice. Do it one at a time, do not soak the balls in the milk.
Deep fry in oil, till they are golden in colour.

Remove and serve with chillie or tomato sauce.
Good as a starter for a party.

NOTE: NON VEGETARIANS can use minced chicken and do it this way.
Also they can dip the balls in beaten egg and roll it in bread crumbs.

Reminds me of the traditional way of making idlis... Pour water in a vessel & tie a clean thin cloth(bit loosely) over the mouth of the vessel... pour idli batter on to the cloth, close with a lid & steam... These idlis will be real big :lol:...

friends, since i had lot of oil after frying the murukku,
I decided to make this simple tapioca chips.
Thanks, Kugan98

TAPIOCA CHIPS

Ingredients:

Tapioca
Oil for deep frying
2 tsp salt mixed in a small bowl of water.

Method:

Peel and clean the tapioca roots.
Heat the oil in a wok.

Hold a chip slicer directly over the oil.
Slice the tapioca chips into the oil.
Do not over crowd them.

The chips will slightly brown at the edges.
Pour a teaspoon of the salt water into the oil.
When you add the salt water to the hot oil,
The oil will pop up with a spluttering sound.

Be cautious, lest the hot oil will pop onto to your hands.
Keep a distance when you pour the salt water.
Within minutes, the popping will subside.

Remove the tapioca chips as soon as the noise stops.
Only then you will get white tapioca chips.
Drain it on a kitchen paper towel.
Let it cool before storing in an air tight tin.

So Ganesha is known as Modhakapriyan in Malayalam..... :ty:

The soft white shell filled with puraNam is called kozhukkattai in our area of Tamilnadu.

modhaka priyam is Sanskrit ! MalayaLam has borrowed a lot of Sanskrit words as did Tamil and other languages! If you are familiar with the Dikshithar composition Mahaa Ganapathim, there is a line - "mooshika vaahana modhaka priyam"! :)

I speak Malayalam at home so I cud understand wat you have just said. Sanskrit is the mother of all our languages....if Ganesh-ji is Modhaka priyan then I am Modhaka priya..!! :lol:

Neengga poondu podi kekireenga.


O.K Dev, some people make this podi with coconut.
Some make it with pottu kadalai, asafoetida powder,
and even add little tamarind paste.

I make this simple way. Try and see.


Poondu Podi

Ingredients:

8 dried red chillies
3 tbs channa dal
3 tbs urad dal
8 garlic pips
salt to taste
little curry leaves (optional)
1/4 tsp pepper corns (optional )
little sesame oil

Method:

Heat the oil on medium heat.
stir fry both the dals well.
add in also the dried chillies, also if you are using the curry leaves and pepper, roast and remove.

When cool, use a dry grinder and grind the roasted ingredients with salt to a coarse powder.
As you grind the powder, add in the garlic pips one by one.
Make the blades go 2 rounds, add in one garlic pip, and so on. This way you get dry poondu podi.
The smell of the garlic will be prominent.
Thanks, Kugan98

Kugan,

Made unni appam yesterday together with my younger daughter. In fact she helped me to add the ingredients.

Appam was tasty. My hubby like it.

Thanks for the recipe. You really are a gem.

I notice that when we mix coriander powder and chili powder, the end cooking looks like our local chicken/fish masala cooking.
In that case for recipes that requires both coriander and chili powder can we opt to use only the local chicken/fish masala
powder? Will the taste differ.

Aunty prepared Cheese enchilada, lasagna, tacos, garlic bread, corn curry, sliced water melon and sliced cantaloupe. After dinner they had ice cream and masala tea.

They were getting ready to leave around 7 pm. I told them not to leave any food for me to eat as leftover. They were very sincere in packing whatever they wanted ! :)

Dear Devi, first, I am glad that you all liked the unni appam.
Good, encourage your daughter at a young age itself.


Devi, in the ready mix fish and chicken masalas,
we do not know the proportion of their mix.
More over, we do not know what else they add in.


What I do is, I have coriander powder and red chillie
powder seperately. I use as the recipe demands.

At times, I will dry roast the coriander seeds, dry chillies,
and what ever spices the recipe requests.
Grind it in a small dry grinder to a powder.
Then grind it in a wet grinder to a paste.
I tell you Devi, the taste will be super.


Well you can do all these, only if you have the time.
If you are working woman, then you hardly will have time.
Try using the powders first.
