Dear friends I know this is very very silly but frankly speaking I am very much attracted by the oov kolam of our dear sowmya .yesterday I was about to soak the tuvar dal instantly I got one jatka I pulled one old table of mine which can’t stand straight in his leg always dancing …..on that dancing I tried this .(very difficult to control the legumes on the dancing table they started running here and there .Sowmya sorry for not taking your approval .please give me a feed back
U may laugh on me saying teaching south Indian tamilian about idly. I know we like soft steamed idly .Dear friends one day i could not get my idly vessel(tondur)handy .so i tried to make this crispy idly which i tried when my nephew came from USA last diwali with family for dinner and everybody liked it .
Ingredients for four people
rice ...1 cup
udad daal(black gram)...2 and half cup
Soak both udad and rice separately for 3-4 hours .Grind udad to very fine and rice to little cores(not very fine).keep little thick as compare to steam idly . mix it and keep it for fermentation for 6-7 hours . Take round bottomed pan (kadai) which we normally use for frying things .Put 1 teaspoonful cooking oil preferably sesame oil .add on cup idly batter (dough) and keep it in very very low flame with the lid .Once the upper surface becomes dry reverse and put little oil from the side and keep it for another 4-5 minutes .serve hot with tomato sauce or samber or /and chutney .it goes very well with tea in the evening with company of our hero(I know u r laughing on my silly receipe yes na....)
Lata as mentioned by u uploading the another picture of the ship clicked yesterday night i feel it is more clearer thatn the yesterdays pic
As we are so exited for the cruise yesterday night i have made the ship ready. All ikolam members are invited (welcomed) to join me in this ship for our voyage to and fro from India to US via Singapore, Dubai(to pick up Maha) .Before boarding this ship(of course no need of tickets it is gift from this jerry to all members)all of u have to do one small favor to find out the two words one the name of the ship and the another word (suspense).if u find out one sea creature in this sea still better. ALL THE BEST
