Another typical Palakkad speciality today for lunch. It used to be made in my dad’s ancestral home. Mom makes it every time I go home & I absolutely love it. Never made it myself but this time felt like trying it. And it turned out very well too. Quite easy unlike what I feared.
Vallathila potta kozhakkatai (modak madevout of parboiled rice & fresh coconut in water). Quite a mouthful tongue twister of a dish it is!
Soak parboiled rice overnight. Grind with salt coarsely. Do not add water while grinding. The coarse powder will be sticky from the soaking.
For 1 glass rice soaked & ground add 3/4 coconut grated. Makes 5-6 big kozhakkatais (modaks). Mix ground rice & coconut to make ball sized modaks (pic 2&3)
Boil water in a large deep pan. Add a pinch of salt to the water.
When the water boils well add the modaks. Let them boil & cook (10 -12mins approximately). Pass a knife thru the modak to check if it has cooked.
The water will become like conjee due to disintegration of the modaks but they don’t break.
Cool & eat modak mixed with conjee. It’s a very healthy brunch indeed.
We eat this normally with sambaram. Which is buttermilk mixed with a paste of green chillies, kadipatta, lime leaves & salt. Slurppppppp.

A typical Palakkad Iyer saappad yesterday at home. The hangover of coming back home after a short stay at mom’s is Palakkad saappad.
Clockwise;
- Tomato rasam
- Elavan Molakkootal (white pumpkin & yellow mung dal in a gravy of coconut, Jeera & Red chillies)
- Payaru thoran (long beans or chawli)
- Pulikkachal (a tamarind sweet, sour & spicy dip called inji puli also in Kerala but we Palakkad Iyer’s have to call it by another name so it is pulikkachal literally meaning boiled tamarind! It’s a thinner version of the Tamizh puliyodharai. And, some minor differences in the way it is made too)
- chakka & kaai varathathu (jackfruit & banana chips courtesy mom’s Kerala trip)
- homemade vadu maanga (small mango pickle courtesy Mom)
- rice & homemade ghee (it is the brown part of the fresh homemade ghee that sticks to the pan & I absolutely love the smell & taste of)

On some days, there's nothing more comforting than some tangy vattalkozhambu and paruppu rice. Yesterday happened to be one of those days.
.
After a heavy dinner at a friend's place on Sunday, we were craving for something very simple and comforting for lunch on Monday. So, I made vattalkozhambu (a tamarind-based Tam-Brahm preparation) with mananthankali vatthal (dried black nightshade berries). With some piping hot paruppu rice (cooked toor daal and rice) and ghee, it tasted absolutely heavenly. The stomach - and soul - were much comforted.

The quintessential train journey meal!! #idli #podi #comfortfood #tambrahmfood #travelfood #sisterlove #sistercancook

Today is Aadi Perukku / Pathinettam Perukku ( 18th day of the Tamil month of Aadi) and we celebrate by making what is called variety rice - various types of rice dishes and going on a picnic. Well, the rice part happened as Amma is here, sadly, no picnic, partly from the beautiful rains today and partly because of lil Miss S’s schedule. So anyway, this was our lunch.. (clockwise starting from the bottom of the platr)
🌿 Arisi Vadagam
🌿 Ellu Sadam (Sesame Rice)
🌿 Puliyogarai / Puli Sadam (Tamarind Rice)
🌿 Thengai Sadam (coconut rice)
🌿 Thayir Sadam (curd/yogurt rice)
🌿 Chakkarai Pongal ( Sweetened rice with jaggery)
🌿 Thalagam ( a spicy and tangy curry with a coconut base )
I dont have recipes for all of them on the blog yet, but the link for some other yummy recipes with rice is in bio/profile of 👉🏼 @cookingcurries or look for it on 👉🏼 www.cookingcurries.com

The original lunchbox. Steel. Reusable. Eco-friendly and ones plenty 70s and 80s kids grew up on. Many of us have grown up on taking a 2-stack box with rice and vegetables that moms packed, to eat and share during lunchtime at school. .
Brought back some nice memories this afternoon. Mom is out of town and Dad fell back upon the TamBrahm couple who has made a business of this kind of catering. I could have cooked but he didn’t let me 🤷‍♀️🤨 .
Anyways, swipe to see what was packed. The cabbage koottu, beetroot poriyal and Sambar were meh. That Rasam tho was the bomb. .
As parents grow older it’s hard to be in the cusp - a generation sandwich’s between continents, cultures and lifestyles to feel like we are able to do justice to either duty or responsibility. Most days we manage, some days are hard and then some days we thank the lord that such services exist. 🙏🏻 .

Yaaayyyy August is here!! It's my birthday month and it automatically becomes my favourite month :) .
.
It's still hot here, so we had a quick, cooling lunch that included curd rice and crispy potato + peas fry. I always prefer curd rice with a tempering over plain curd rice, especially if the husband is home to make the curd rice. He makes it the best, by mashing the rice well with the yogurt so it becomes a creamy, melt in the mouth delicacy. Today, I tempered it with mustard seeds, urad dal, ginger, green chillies, red chilly, asafoetida and curry leaves. I finally added some chopped fresh coriander.
