Theyngai Mangai Pattani Sundal

It’s also one of the street foods which you can have it in my home town Madurai. You can get it in front of the temples. You can get it in the streets during festival time. Vendors will keep selling it in the streets and will take to all the doorsteps. I love to have it. It’s more nutritious also. I use to cook in my home as a side dish for rice and during navarathiri festival.

Its also one of my entries to MBP- Street Food Contest and i come across this recipe during my visit to Shankari's blog and her original recipe is HERE.

I have sauted the sundal with mustard seeds and broken black gram and curry leaves and added a little turmeric powder which varies slightly from the original one to give an added taste.



Fresh Green Peas / Dry Green Peas / Pachai Pattani – 1 cup
Onion – 1 (finely chopped)
Grated coconut – 4 tbsp
Grated or finely chopped Green Mango – 4 tbsp
Dry Red Chilly / Green chilly – 2 (finely chopped)
Turmeric Powder – 1 tsp
Red Chilly Powder – ½ tsp (optional)
Curry Leaves –few
Mustard Seeds – 1 tsp
Broken Black Gram – 1 tsp
Salt – to taste
Cooking Oil

Cooking Instructions:

Tips: If you are using dry green peas, soak it in a bowl of hot boiling water and place it in a hot pack or a vaccum flask for 1 to 2 hours to use it immediately, instead of soaking it overnight.

Add green peas with enough amount of salt and water in a pressure cooker. Let it to cook until the peas are well boiled. Strain the excess water.

Heat 4 tbsp of oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds, broken black gram, curry leaves, chopped chillies and onions and fry a while. Add cooked peas to it and stir fry it. Add turmeric powder and chilly powder to it and fry a while. Before you switch off the stove, Add grated coconut and mango to it and fry a minute and serve it hot.

Homemade Masala Chai Powder and Masala Chai

I always like to have my cup of Chai / Tea (a hot beverage) piping hot. I use to start my day daily with a cup of hot tea, which makes me brisk and bright. Masala Chai is a blend of aromatic spices with our normal tea. Masala Chai gives a warmth feeling, when we have it during rainy days or at winter time. Combination of spices and the amount of spices added in preparing masala chai powder depends upon individual taste. People who love the flavor of ginger in tea can add more ginger while preparing masala powder and who love cardamom flavor can add more number of cardamoms. So, everything is at their own discretion. When you have cold and congestion in nose, Masala Chai really gives a good relief and soothing feel.

Mushroom Peas Masala

Mushroom and Peas always a great combo, which tastes great when we add this combo in Biriyani’s, Pulao’s, Gravies and Curries. Mushroom Peas Masala / Dhingri Matar Masala / Mushroom Mutter Masala, Whatever it is called, all refers to the same thing, is a yummy and delicious gravy, which goes best with Roti’s, Naan’s, Phulka’s and Chapathis.

Homemade Ginger Garlic Paste

Ginger Garlic Paste recipe doesn’t require much introduction since everyone knows that it is very simple to do.It is purely and purely for beginners who has just now stepped into kitchen for cooking.  But, it is an essential ingredient in every home and most of our Indian dishes has Ginger Garlic Paste in it. Ginger Garlic Paste is cheaper in stores too. But, what made me to prepare Ginger Garlic Paste at home is, Preservatives and Adulteration, which is in most of the items we buy today from stores, which is unhealthy too. When I started to prepare Ginger Garlic Paste at home, I found the fresh flavor in it, which we cannot see in store bought bottles. Ginger and Garlic aids in digestion when we add in our food.
