I love some of the traditional Tamilnadu recipes especially their kootus and curries.I don’t make it very often as we have a very simple lunch of chapati ,curry, rice and dal everyday and for dinner , I make some kind of tiffin/snacks. But during weekends, I try to make some traditional recipes like avial or usili curry or poricha kuzhumbu which involves coconut and grinding of spices etc.
A couple of months back when I had thesurgery, my dad had come here. He wanted to help me with cooking that time. I had then, recently got a traditional south Indian recipe book by Chandra Padmanabhan and showed him the book. He made this ashgourd curry and it was really delicious and is also a recipe from my native place Thirunelveli. I decided to make it again and take the photographs to blog about it. I hardly buy wintermelon which is actually readilly available at the local supermarkets as I dont know how to use it. But from now, I am going to buy it quite often and also plan to try another ashgourd recipe from the same book.
This book by Chandra Padmanaban “simply south” is really good and I have bookmarked a few recipes to be tried out soon.
