    Kugan's Kitchen Part 7

    Madhu anneh, thanks for all your wishes.
    Wishes from great people like you are great inspirations for me.

    Madhu anneh, every family has their own way of making Vishu Kanji and chakka puzhukku.
    Some only cook the rice with cumin seeds and add grated coconut and make the kanji.
    Some add pluses, and coconut milk to the kanji to make it more nutritious.
    Some even make it very thick, pour into a container and cut into squares when it is cold.

    The same is done for the chakka puzhukku.
    I will post how it was taught to us by our grandmother.
    Thanks anneh, take care, have a great time.
    Kugan

    Groucho anneh thanks for your kind wishes.
    How can a tangai forget her anneh.
    You were always in my mind, but I understand that you are a new father.
    Anneh, I know, you must be enjoying every minute with the baby.
    Good anneh, jot down her first smile, her first turn over, her first crawling and so on.
    Take pictures and make it into an album. The child will be very happy to see it once it has grown up.
    I have even kept a tiny bundle of the first hair, of my children when the head was shaved.
    Thanks anneh, take your time, take care, Kugan

    Kugan's Kitchen Part 7

    Well my dear friends, the few days had been very hectic for me.
    A very old friend of ours came from India. (summer holidays in India)
    They wanted to come for tea on the 12th, eve of new year.
    I could not say no, also it was their small son's birthday.
    They requested for few kuihs, so I had no choice but to do it.
    Also made a simple cheese cake for the boy.
    They wanted simple agar2, cincau agar2, custard, curry puffs, onion pakoda,
    sandwiches, fried mee, iddli, sambar, popia
    Here is the spread.
