|Ellu Kozhukattai Recipe|
Kozhukattai / rice dumpling is a famous South Indian snack item. I used wait for the festival seasons to get these steamed beauties from the next door neighbor and immediately gobble few ;-) although Amma used to say don't be so greedy I can make you some at home. The day never happened, so this time when I was home I pulled Amma to make kozhukattai for me and I tell you this is like a childhood food wish. I was so excited during the entire process and Amma gave me the messy job of shaping the kozhukattai and I used fancy mold to get them into perfect shapes (sort of). I usually like the sweet version and especially with the black filling (ellu jaggery/ ellu pooranam). The soft outer and the sweet crunchy inner does a marriage of flavor in every bite. You really have to try this to know how good it tastes. I hope to make kozhukattais in my kitchen and properly share my success stories of different version on my blog.

Who doesn't love hot steaming rice with spicy tangy fish curry along with a porriyal. These are memories of mid week meals for me. Amma makes the most delicious fish curries and she has perfected it so much that no matter how many times I make fish curry and hear from my husband that it tasted great I still have this 10% unsatisfied part which keeps telling me This is not like how Amma makes :). Do you hear me ;-) I think its an undeniable thought most cooks have. Although I create my own recipes, I still look make to Amma's recipes and get inspiration. I have heard many tell me that they love the tips that I give for recipes below each post :) trust me these are the ones that make a recipe a hit or a miss. Its those little tips and tricks that help you perfect any recipe that I have posted here. Now lets move on to the recipe today.

What is so great about curd rice? why post a recipe for this? might me the question for many who is seeing this post on my blog? The reason for sharing this recipe is for beginners who struggle to get the perfect taste to tempered curd rice. I have been there and gone through it, but eventually I learnt the taste and trick to getting the perfect curd rice. I can live for a week or almost daily just eating curd rice, I think it has to go with my Amma's genes as she is also someone who loves curd. There can never be a meal complete without us enjoying a spoon of curd. Its a must, I love having curd rice plain but at times I enjoy them tempered like the rice I am sharing today. Curd rice, lemon pickle, potato chips are one amazing combination.
