Karamani payaru kulambu (Cow Beans)

Hi friends,
              Karamani payaru kulambu is one of my  fav side dishes for dosa or paratha. But usually karamani kulambu takes a lot of work. This morning I woke up with the craving for karamani kulambu. But I didn't soak the karamni yesterday night. Suddenly I remember what my mother used to do. She will dry fry the karamani  in a pan and pressure cook them. So  I did the same and got an excellent result. Karamani puli kulambu came out perfectly.So  remember this method, if you forget to soak karamani.

  Hi friends,
                  Every festive season, I remember having adhirasam. It is one of the few sweets which has jaggery. Adhirasam has unique taste which is completely different from any thing you have tasted. People thinks that it takes a lot of effort to make adhirasam but it is very simple. Make adhirasam once, you will find yourself  making it frequently.

Dry ginger coffee (Sukku malli coffee)

Hi friends,
              Dry ginger coffee (Sukku malli coffee) is a spicy drink.  Dry ginger and coriander both have medicinal properties. Its the best remedy for throat pain. I've seen some who drink this without milk but I always add milk to it. Its upto you to decide to add milk or not. Mind you, this will be really spicy without milk. Its not refreshing like tea or coffee but its the best drink to have in winter.

Coconut rice

Hi friends,
I don't know if this happens to you, I always find coconut left over from other recipes accumulating in the corner of my fridge. So coconut rice is my solution to get rid of all those left over coconuts without wasting them. With that said I don't mean that coconut rice is not tasty. In fact, I am willing to bet , you will get addicted to it because of its taste. But be warned coconut rice spoils easily. So finish it up in six or seven hours.
