மிளகாய் பச்சடி / Amma's Chilli Onion Pachadi / Onion & Green Chillies Cooked in a Sweet Tamarind Sauce ( HOT, SOUR & SWEET )



This is my amma's famous recipe, she makes this more often than anything else..Whenever she makes her paruppu kulambu( DAL), it must be accompanied by this pachadi. Warm Dal mixed with hot rice along with a generous drizzle of homemade ghee and let's not forget the papadam, mix all those together, take a generous portion out of it( don't ask me how generous, as long as the portion fits your mouth) form it into round balls..Now comes the interesting part, dip that round ball in this pachadi and without any delay throw them into your mouth. I should tell you this, this taste like heaven..It reminds so much of amma for me…

மட்டன் குழம்பு / Mutton Kulambu / Mutton Gravy / Lamb Cooked in a Spicy Gravy



One of the most requested recipe in YUMMY TUMMY is a proper mutton kulambu. I have been getting request for that from so many viewers. Last week I decided to give it a try. I made for my sister and we had a awesome lunch. 

I pressure cooked mutton pieces with all the spices and a thick masala, this made the mutton so meltingly tender. If you have got a little time, let the gravy sit for a while so that the flavours will meld together and taste even more delicious..I served it with plain'ol rice, but this taste equally delicious with aapam, idiappam, roti and paratha.
