    neyyappam

    dear seethalakshmi amma,
    i tried neyyappam and it came out very well. i kept the mixture only five hours and added little maida bcoz the batter was too watery.
    my children liked it very well.
    thank u, safa.

    pls do take your time, no hurry as such.

    thanks for sharing such wonderful traditional recipes of Kerala.......

    sambar podi

    Red chilli one cup
    Daniya 3/4 cup
    fenugreek seeds 1 teaspoon
    These are main increadinas for sambar masala.
    dry roast all and grind as powder.Black pepper and cumin seeds half table spoon each may be added.
    aroma of dhania
    from all other masala of the sambar tastes better.
    dry roast and include with other increadians before grinding.
    This powder is suitable for rasam.
    seasoning for rasam in ghee mustard seeds,cumin seeds and three or four crushed balck peper,asafoetita with curry leaf.Last add green dhaniya leaves.
    smell and taste will be good.
    All parippu ie., channa dal,thuvar dal, urd dal each 1/2 table spoon
    dry roast and added with the main increadians before grinding.
    these dals are only for thickening agent for sambar.
    without dal the sambar will stay fresh long time.

    Sambar masala may be prepared fresh ground.Arachuvitta sambar tastes better.
    red chilli 4 or 5, dhaniya one table spoon, 1/2 teaspoon fenugreek seeds.May be included other parippu, raw rice each one teaspoon, oil roast them, grind it with 3 table spoon grated coconut.Make sambar as usual.

    Paladai prathaman,Adai prathaman

    Valappaye Krishna Iyer was very famous for his paladai prathaman.I was in his house when he was preparing adai and cooked prathaman.I am trying to give the description.Nowadays adai is available in the market.But taste is better when we make adai cook payasam.

    one kg raw rice soak it in water and grind to a smooth paste.Add liquid ghee one table spoon, lukewarm hot water.Stirr well.The batter should be thinner than thosa batter.In a big vessal boil water.
    Take plantain leave[krishna Iyer said [gnalipoovan plantain leave is best for aroma to prepare adai] Cut leaf in the size of eating tiffin. Take battar in the hand and pore the batter in the leaf through the fingers like kolam line.Then roll the leave one side to another side tightly.Tie the ends with cotton thread or plantain thread.Put the rolled leaf in the well boiled water.Do all the batter like this.Boil the water atleast half an hour.Remove the leaf rolls from the hot water and pour cold water.Leave it to cool.Take a big vessal full of cold water.take one leaf roll and remove the tied threads open the leaf.Now rinse in the cold water.The adai leaves from leaf.Do all rolls like this.Wash the adai well and drain the water.
    dice well into small pieces.
    Now take thick bottom urly pore 10 litter milk when boil add adai pieces boil well.Reduce to 3/4 quantity.Add 2 kg sugar boil well.When we add sugar the milk will be watery.So boil it again.When it thickens remove from fire.This is the traditional cooking of baladai prathaman.Nowadays milkmaid one or two tin is added in the last and stirr well.
    one kg milk, one cup adai, 175 gm sugar
    Sweetness may increased or discreased accoring to family taste.
    For adai prathaman instead of milk and sugar add coconut
    milk and marayur sarkarai.[jagary]
    one cup adai,2, 3 coconut and 2 cup jagary
