Yes you can try that, Not sure how good it will come, better look for Indian stores, you can definetely find one or some groceries will have the equivalents.

can somebody tell me whether the tofu that we get in shops and paneer are one and the same?

11-07-2003, 08:55 AM
Hi sowmya,
Tofu is made from soybean curd, tofu is rich in high-grade protein. It is a cheese-like food made by curdling fresh soymilk.

Panneer is full cream milk and acetic acid. Paneer is a full fat soft cheese.

Ok vaaa ..purinchuthooo

Anybody pls tell me the preparation of bitter gourd kolambu without that bitter taste and also for ridge gourd(peerkangai)chutney.Thank s.

[[shadow=cyan:a5aeeeebd2]
hi sivam,

u can try doing bitter gourd in puli kolambu style. u can also add channa to it. when ur about to remove the kolambu from stove add little amout of grated jaggery. this will surely reduce the bitter taste. i've tried it several times n it works.

the tamarind n jaggery makes the bitterness disappear.just try n tell me.

I don't see anything in this topic.

Read the FAQ first then request your recipies here (in this topic alone) and If you request the recipes in the recipe posting area, it may got removed.

So request your recipe here as a reply and do not create a seperate topic for your recipe request.

most of the recipes posted here are based on ingredients exclusive to India/Sri Lanka....people like me who live miles and miles away from a tamil shop can have not much use out of them (especially if one doesn't have mich cooking experience, like me :) )

Interesting request.

I prepare sambhar with one standard sambhar masala(anna poorna)..
To change the taste of the sambhar i tried different vegetables but couldnt get the diference in taste.. :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

If i want vendaikai sambhar i add vendaikai and so on and so forth. but i couldnt get the real taste. What am i lackinggg....Can somebody solve this mystery ... :think: :think: :think:

11-20-2003, 02:02 AM
Madhu,

Vegetables change pani'na u wont have that much of a taste difference..
If u want to have real taste difference, then u have to make somethign like onion sambhar, mullangi sambhar, araichuvita sambhar etc... appo thaan real difference erukum..

For vendakka sambar kooda u can make a change.. did u fry vendakka and then add it to sambhar?? appadi fry panum poothu (fry it with little amount of oil, when its about to finish. but some chilli powder and paeratiitu..keep it aside).. then when u are about to remove sambhar, just put this vege for 5 mins and take it..

I'm using basmathi rice for making idli and dosa dough.
problem is dough works good for dosa. but not idli. i think this is due to the rice i'm using. here i couldn't get puzungalarisi. i tried some par boiled rice
but that too didn't work. so i use only basmathi rice.
Is there anyother alternate rice variety or anyother way to make soft idli.

instead of butter try one teaspoon of oil itself while blending the dough and very little water. let the dough be tight.

before using try a little of it in oil see how it comes out well try the rest OR ELSE try altering the combinations

sowmya...
If its outdoor grills. then i dont know the controls. If its the oven you are talking about where you can roast turkey.. :sm11: :sm11: :sm11: it has a thermostat( Its a device which maintains the teomperature :D It will automatically shut it off when the oven reaches the set temperature and turns on if goes below the set temperature..)

So If you set 400 C as the temperature without anything in the oven .. it will preheat.. :D

Hi Madhu and shy,

I am talking about the microwave oven where u can cook rice or dal or any other dish.

Regarding Microwave. There is no need to pre-heat it..... :D Since oven with grills occupy a large volume.. they need to be preheated to have even cooking.... :D Other wise the part closer to the heating rods gets cooked faster... :( and ultimately blackens.early.... :(



I am a vegetarian, so i don't know whether u can roast turkey in that.


You still can roast turkey in that vegetarian oven.. :D :D This is purely intended to be a funny comment . If you feel offended.. sorry ..please manichirunga... :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray:

I think that u are in US, definetely there should be some Indian groceries,if they don't have the stuff u can request them to try getting the item for you.
If u don't have any Indian shop then visit www.Namaste.com,go to products search and search for Besan flour , their are different brands in different quantity.
Bcos, according to me besan flour cannot be substituted by any other stuff.
In india,we can grind dry dal into fine powder in grinding stations.

hi madhu, what I use for dosai mavu is. 3 cups of Long grain rice and 1 cup urd dhal soak it for 4 hours and then grind it. when u grinding the rice and urd dhal u can add two tablespoon of cooked rice. and then ferment it overnight and the next day go ahead and make idli or dosai what ever u want. hey don't forget to add salt to mavu before making idli or dosai.

p.s. U can add salt the previous day when u leave it to ferment or in the morning before making idli or dosai.

Hope this helps u madhu.

How long I need to grind it.. :think:

Dont we need to add baking powder ?? my mom used to do this ....

How many dosas will this ratio serve :think:

Thanks for remainding abt salt. u definetly seen my juvenile characteristics

vasan
01-31-2004, 02:17 AM
thambi,

experiment pannupaa...

i use 2 cups rice to 1 cup urad dhal. no cooked rice. no baking powder.
dosa's come out ok... (my friends have not complained, so it won't kill you.. )

i use mixie too. i grind them separately. just grind dhal very well.. (liquefy?). for rice no so well but about 85 %.. a little bit of grainy texture is not bad... then I mix the stuff well and add common salt (yes, you can use the regular Morton stuff !!) .. and let it ferment over night..

depending on how 'big' the cup is and how big the dosa's are the number would change..
(you can calculate, but I know your math is bad, and mine is worse.. so lets leave it.. :lol: !!)..
for me, I use Starbucks 'tall' size (but a diffrent )cup and it gives about 30 or so dosas..

if it comes out well, send some down I-5 south.. OKvaa... if it is bad, send it to Vennai.. :)

Vasan

ps: I have no clue what I am doing in recipe section... DJs paartha konnuduvaanga.. :ush:

ps; ps: any grocery shop would have long grain rice... same as our 'some-thing-or-the-other' rice.. lets call it as a all purpose rice.. :) Being a good indian boy, you can buy the brand 'MAHATMA'... :lol: (hey, it does exist.. go figure.. !!)

madhu I use mixie too. nothing will change. just add litte water and select grind and grind it.



appuram what is long grain rice. ..


Long grain rice is (pachaarisi) is there safeway in your area or even superstore. go to rice section and look for long grain rice.

"How long I need to grind it.. "

As vasan said till grainy texture.



Dont we need to add baking powder ?? my mom used to do this ....

How many dosas will this ratio serve


No need of baking powder. I add cooked rice for the idli and dosai to become softer. usually when I use 3:1 I use the mavu for 2- 3 days to make idli or dosai. can keep them in fridge and before u make it take it out from fridge 1/2 hour before for the coldness to go away.

Vasan's way is another way also to do but I usually grind both rice and urd dhal together.

Shy
01-31-2004, 05:36 AM
madhu ellarum super'a explain panni irukaanga.. just a few from me...

It depends on which rice u are using.. my friends in Cal get "Lakshmi Idly Rice" Get that.. ellaina par boiled rice. Now 4 cups of rice and 1 cup of urad whole dal ok. Together u can soak them.. since we are using mixie.. soak it for well 6 hrs.. Along with this. soak 1 spoon of vendhayam.

Now 1 cup of water vachukoonga..mixie evalavu kollumoo avalavu cup of soaked content pootu.. 0.4 water pour and grind it well.. The point is semi solid'a irukanum maavu.. so less water add pannunga.. since nalla soaked it will grind well.. appo appo konjam water.. thats it okvaa..

Since u are college guy.. u may want to have this maavu without pulichufying for atleast a week, so DONT ADD SALT TO THE MAAVU when grinding...

Now one night(mostly a day in this cold :() ferment it.. then whenever u are making dosai or idli add sa;t and make it.. This way maavu will not pulichufy easily..

Tips : nalla ferment aaganumna.. micirwave iruku ellai.. athula pour the maavu in a microwavable container and heat for 5 mins.. then leave it there for one night :)
Hope this helps

The stoves on the top and the oven at the bottom are seperated by some heat insulation, Minik... I think my stove was too old (rented home.. poor students.. :D ) and, presto, the heat inside was too much... :) That is when I learned about baking 'idlies'... :D :D :D

hello people......

most of the recipes posted here are based on ingredients exclusive to India/Sri Lanka....people like me who live miles and miles away from a tamil shop can have not much use out of them (especially if one doesn't have mich cooking experience, like me :) )
So ,it'll be great if we can have some recipes from back home, which can be made from stuff available at local supermarkets.....

just my thoughts.... :)

Semi-conductor man..

Temperature is important for fermentation... If the place you live is cold cold cold, it might take several days to ferment (even if you keep it in the oven since the temperature might not be good enough)..

Ideally around 80-100 oF and about 8-12 hours is all you would need.. After all the poor yeast needs time to do its work.. :D :D

Hope this helps..

Si:

Puli (in small amounts) add panninaa thiriyaathu.. but before adding, wait for the milk to cool..

Also you can add yeast artificially... Though some don't like to add (yeast from other sources is not ok.. so home grown yeast from buttermilk is preferred.. ) Most yogurt (like Dannon) is made with cultured yeast. The only diffrence in diffrent companies is the milk they use.. In the end, yeast is yeast. It just ferments milk to get the curd. No big deal. :D

Hi everyone,

A small request please

When you guys post your scrumptious recipes could you please use most commonly used and English names for the ingredients.

Cos frankly I have no idea abt all these funky Indian words that I see in the ingredient list.
The latest is Paalak...what is that...I really don't know..

I only go to know recently that Maida means flour and Brinjaal means egg-plant

And got a small intro into the wonderful world of grains and pulses ...I mean just learned a couple words for chick-peas :ee:

I know I am a pain...but the other scenario would be me asking each time what one of those exotic ingredients is :D


thank you so much....and Thank you aagin for your yummy recipes.

we can also do this keep it near the range when u are cooking if heat is near that it becomes sour quick.After completing cooking keep it anywhere or inside oven. I think this will help u. I do this for Dosai mavu too. It helps for me.Find from ur friends whether they make curd in their home. if some one makes get sample from them and add it to milk ( boil it first fully and then let the heat get reduced too luke warm) u can add the sample to the milk now.Vitamin D milk will be good to make thicker and tastier curd. I did this it came so well. Now i do this regularly.

Drying and salting Fish and meat has been a very effective method of preservation since we didn't have fridges back then in the stone age :ee:


asked Mummy about the Karavadu kulambu

she said to follow the same method as normal fish curries.

* soak dried fish for an hour prior to cooking to get rid of grit and dirt ...wash thoroughly
* saute sliced onions, vendeyam seeds, jeeraham, curry leaves till golden
* add fish curry powders,salt, tamarind paste and about 1.5 cups of water for 1 person
* cook till ready :ahha:
sorry I have not tried cooking this...mum said it should come out fine :cool:
good luck :b:

Veg na

fry onions,ginger,garlic &just satay mixed veggies with soya sauce & add crushed dry red chilli to it
Boil the semolina seperate strain it & add to the satay & mix them & satay it for another 2 mins & eat it :)

If ur non veg
Fry some onions,ginger,garlic
Then cut chicken breast into small thin strips & cook it with soya sauce & red crushed chilli along with a little turmeric & above fried onions,ginger & garlic

get the mixed veggies ready as said before.

then add to the boiled semolina & mix them all & satay it

Ofcourse you can make kozhukkattai out of wheat flour. Here is the recipe.

1) Wheat flour-ai nalla chappaathi maavu maadhiri pesanjukkonga.

2) Chinna chinna chappaathiya athai ittu vella pooranatthai (Guess you know how to make pooranam) athukkulla stuff panni kozhukkattai maadiriye shape-la mela mooku vara maadiri athai moodidunga.

3) You deep fry it in oil.

Hello Gourmet Rasikas,


This is the first time I am visiting this section:

The receipe for Sweet corn chicken Soup:

Make chicken stock with:
1No. Chicken Carcass
1No Peeled onion Medium size cut into cubes
1No Celery stick, cut into pieces
1No Carrot, cut into cubes
2No Bay leaves
5No Black pepper corns

Start with cold water. Add all the above ingredients to cold water and let it come to a boil. Skim the scum which floats on the top and put the pot to simmer. Depending how strong you want the chicken soup, simmer the stock atleast for 45 minutes on low flame. Then drain the stock. Either you can use the onions, Carrot cubes and celery or discard it along wiht the chicken carcass.


To make the Soup: To make 1 ltr
Saute 2 cubed onions, and add finely cubed celery(1 stick) and saute well. Either add the corn niblets( 300 gms) and mash it or add tinned creamed corn( 400 gms) and then add the chicken stock( 1.25Lt) and let it come to a simmer.
Let it simmer atleast for 15 minutes. Then make a slurry ( 2 Table spoons corn flour mixed with water (50 ml). Add this to the simmering soup and season it.
You can also add the beaten egg and stir in the soup while it is hot.

Garnish with chopped spring onions and eat it.

Hope this receipe works for you.

Regads, Prasad

Hey Raghu, I make them.. but beleive me, its always best to buy the readymade ones and use them than doing it from start.

Readymade ones are available in 2 ways.

(1) One frozen, all you need is to fry or oven them
(2) All set in powder form, you need to mix them and then fry or oven them.

Let me know what you wanna do :)

If you want to do it from start, will post the recipe :)

It cud be coz of the consistency of the maavu....is it too watery?

or sounds like too much yeast :think: .....do u cover the appam after pouring it?

May be the vessel is too deep for appam. Go for a medium size kadai and cook in medium flame. Cover the vessel properly while cooking appams. Better to use notstick kadai.

Or may be the dough is too watery. Have the batter little lighter than dosa mavu consistensy.
