Gujarathi Patra Recipe | Alu Vadi Recipe | Pathrode Recipe

Patra – An interesting savory snack from the state of Gujrat, India! Interesting, because, I experienced a complete medley of tastes from this snack. It has got a mixture of performance from the tangy tamarind, spicy chili, sharp ginger and sweet jaggery in it. Altogether, the taste is jumbled, but yeah it’s NICE!         I will have to write about my friends Megha, Shruti and Priya before I write about the Patra recipe. My first experience with Patra was at Megha’s house. She is a Gujarathi who was brought up in Andhra. She makes awesome laddus with wheat flour, kous kous and lots of ghee . When I visited her for Gokulashtami pooja, she asked me to try a frozen snack. As she thawed, she spoke about the snack. ‘Meena, you should try this. This is a Gujarathi snack. Savory. Will be awesome! I like it a… Continue reading »

Puliyogare recipe | Puliyodharai | Pulisaadham | Tamarind Rice

Sourashtra-style Puliyodharai Recipe ~ Puli sadham Recipe ~ Puliyogare Recipe Call it an easy lunch box recipe or a recipe while on a picnic or a touring recipe, Puliyodharai alias Puliyogare is a versatile food! While some consider it to be a holy dish prepared with so much of devotion during the pujas for God, it is my comfort food. Comfort food because it involves no cutting of vegetables 😛 Pulikachal paste is very very handy, especially when you are hungry or when your morning wake-up alarm cheated on you. Moreover, Puliyodharai is a savior of a dying tongue. Savior because, since it has a spicy touch and a dominating sour taste, the moment you taste a spoon full of Pulisadham, your taste buds will blossom back thereby rescuing a bored tongue. So today’s recipe is about “how to make Puliyogare at home”. Oh! not that soon, without making you listen… Continue reading »

Wheat flour puttu - Kodhumai puttu

Kothumai puttu – Steamed wheat cake

Trichy, Grandmother’s home I was introduced to puttu in my ammachi veedu (grandma’s house). She used to prepare huge-huge amount of arisi puttu for the whole family in several batches 😀 while my chithi used to scrap many coconut heads and my aunt used to steam them in mega size idli-steamer, mix with sugar, coconut, gingely oil and give them hot in plates. Mmmm… I used to enjoy eating them. But if I remember, I first had godhumai puttu from my amma’s kitchen. And after tasting it for the first time, I fell in love with it and almost forgot about arisi puttu :). Yeah. Falling in the aroma that spreads outside the balcony when my mother roasts the wheat flour… it’s like a sweet spell. In this post, we’ll see how to make whole-wheat steamed cake/kothumai puttu.     You can check my Puttu Making Video by clicking here…. Continue reading »
