Aval Puliyogarai(V)(GF): Tamarind flattened rice. A favorite in an Iyengar household and made for special occasions. I would love to eat it every day! It’s fla.ened rice tossed in a tamarind gravy that’s been cooked with spices over a long time. The rice is then topped off with peanuts, coconut and ground up spice mixture.
-Eaten by itself or with ginger pachadi
Maccha kottai sambar(V)(GF): Hyacinth beans cooked with pigeon peas, tomatoes, coconut and spices. This one tastes even better the next day
- Eaten with white rice
Vazakka Masiyal(V)(GF) - Plaintains stir fried with spices, tamarind and jaggery. A little sweet sour and spicy!
I like to eat it with plain riceor just eat it by itself. Yumm!
Beans and carrot Poriyal(V)(GF): Green beans and carrots sautéed with spices and coconut. Mild and yummy.
-Eaten with white rice, though, I hear it’s great by itself (V)(GF)
Inji Pachadi(GF): Ginger, coconut and a few spices ground and mixed with whole milk yogurt
