Kerala Kadala Curry:
Kadala Curry with puttu/aapam/idiyappam is one of the yummiest and very common breakfast combos of Kerala. These combos are so filling and very healthy too. I have tried n number of variations of this recipe but this one was loved by my hubby(My MasterChef) , so posting it here. There is one more reason to post. This is the only time I had captured the entire recipe with a decent final picture. Most of the times, I miss clicking step by step pictures because of my rapid cooking sessions. Being a mother of a toddler I had always thought of quickly finishing kitchen works and rushing to see what my son was upto.I hear him cry/scream/fall/break/throw only when I am engaged with any work. But actually, he would be silently doing his job. This is not imagination but hallucination(Effect of Bigg Boss) associated with MOTHERHOOD(LOL).I am sure every mommy would undergo this daily. I definitely should agree that I am not a great photographer or an excellent food stylist. I am more of a person who looks for the health quotient of a dish rather than the looks.I am very gradually improving myself and trying to learning to click better. Thanks to each and everybody who is continuously motivating me in this journey of learning. Coming to the recipe,I served this with Bajra/Pearl Millet/Kambu Idiyappam/String Hoppers.It was so tasty and very filling.If you get a chance to visit Kerala don’t miss their delicacies.Oh how I miss Kerala and my dear neighbours!
My heartfelt Onam wishes to each of you 🙂
Onam is a colourful festival of Kerala which is celebrated with loads fun,colour and gaiety . And off course Onam Sadhya. I wanted to try some traditional dishes of Kerala by taking recipes from my neighbours and family friends here and give a try before Onam.But due to several travels I couldn’t try many>I have tried puttu,aapam,few brown rice dishes & payasam.But never clicked.I am beginning by set of posts under Kerala Cuisine with this “Mashed Tapioca Curry”(I did not mash since my LO enjoyed picking the pieces and eating) which was the first dish which just attracted me with its looks in the initial days after our transfer to Kochi. I was totally doubtful about it(thinking it would be a non-veg dish).Recently this recipe was shared to me by one of our family friends.I just modified slightly and attempted it yesterday.It just turned out great and myself & my son had it for our meal.I am adding the recipe in the way I tried and also adding the steps to make in the traditional way in the P.S section.
Here is the album of some healthy(No sugar/milk/maida added) festive recipes.
