PuriUrandai


Puri Urandai:

I couldn’t believe myself that I could make a sweet that fast. Thanks to the Blogging Marathon team and to the host who started this, that’s none other than Srivalli of spicingyourlife.
Today being the last day of second week of Blogging Marathon, I am glad to say that I have learnt very good sweets which can be made with less or more time. Thanks for my family and friends who had been very supportive.

Thanks for all the exciting comments which made me jump high on the air.

Puri Urandai is made up of beaten rice and jaggery. I was shocked to see this sweet getting ready just in 10 minutes and I cooked keep my lovely little angel my little son on my hip and then do this, but needed help of somebody while making it rounds. This is a must sweet made by Tamilians during “Karthika Deepam”.

Ingredients:
  • Beaten Rice – 1 1/2 cup
  • Jaggery – 1 cup
  • Cardamom Powder – 1 tbsp
  • Poppy Seeds – 1 tbsp
  • Chopped Coconut – as you desire
  • Fried Gram Dhal – as you desire

Method:
  • Put jaggery and water in a thick bottomed vessel to make jaggery syrup.
  • When you feel the syrup is almost ready put a drop into a small cup/vessel which has water, you should be able to make a round or small dough.
  • Once you are able to make, add cardamom powder and poppy seeds.
  • Pour it into the vessel where your beaten rice is ready along with fried gram dhal and chopped coconut. Watch out it would be hot, make your hand wet and start mixing dry ingredients with jaggery syrup.
  • Keep it on a plate, take a snap, and eat it with family members.

TenkaiKarjikayalu:


Tenkai-Karjikayalu:

Tenkai Karjikayalu is my 5th day post for 2nd week of Blogging Marathon. My theme for this week is Kids Delight – Something Sweet.

I had done it on Saturday, 28th Jan 2012 when I cooked lunch for my family. Lunch comprised of Methi Dhal, Tomato Rasam, Rice and curds. Special entry was my sweet Tenkai Karjikayalu (tenga kolakottai or coconut rolls). Our breakfast for that day was Puri and after everybody having breakfast there was wheat flour (atta) remaining. It flashed my great brain why don’t I do this sweet. I asked my mom-in-law she told once lunch is ready I could make them; she said and went to sister-in-law’s place who stays nearby.

I was eager to make so I couldn’t wait, moreover my little son was sleeping, so it was a good time for me to do along with lunch. I kept sugar and water to become sugar syrup, and blended coconut in blender. Once sugar syrup was getting ready I added poppy seeds, cardamom powder, baby saffron and mixed well, add blended coconut to the mixture. I hope you remember I made little almond powder last week, I added them into this. As almond contains oil, it’s better to utilize them at the earliest.

Ingredients:
I had to eat 6 laddoos directly and myself, my son, and sis-in-law son, sis-in-law and co-brother it was over in no time.

Method:
Make small puris and keep coprapak laddoos in the center
Cover the dough properly so that laddoos doesn’t come out
Heat oil in a kadai and once it is full hot, keep it into medium flame and fry the rolls
Put it onto a vessel where the oil can be drained

Dark Chocolate Milk Shake

Dark Chocolate Milk Shake:

I planned to prepare puriundai (might be my next recipe) but ended up preparing dark chocolate milk shake in office. :(.

Great thing I did yesterday is, I informed my hubby somehow stating that I like my blog which motivates me to cook/make/bake new things and asked him to cooperate my work. Reason is, my little son has become a nightmare for me, he doesn't sleep nor he lets anybody sleep (including my older son). As my mom-in-law would have cooked something in the afternoon and very rarely I  get a chance to cook something, great thing I do is cook rice in the evening which will hardly take 5 minutes. I need to put this guy to sleep and then prepare whatever I would have planned.

In the early morning, once I got up, my little son also got up and as it was just dosa chutney had to be done. Good my mom-in-law did a new chutney and the recipe will be out shortly.

In the office today I was supposed to have some training and instead of keeping my blog readers wait i just thought a dark chocolate milk shake can also serve as a sweet as we had sugar to it. Please pass your valuable comments if it can be considered under sweet or not.

This is going to be my 3rd day in Blogging Marathon under 2nd week event. As you are aware my group is "Kid's Delight - Something Sweets" for this week.

Ingredients:

  • Dark Chocolate - 4 pieces (one chocolate will have 8 pieces)
  • Butter - 1 tsp
  • Milk - 1 cup
  • Sugar - 1
  • Fruits of your taste (just to make you have a good breakfast)

Method:
  • Melt butter in microwave
  • Add dark chocolate to them and melt them in oven
  • Add milk, sugar and heat it for a  moment so that chocolate mixes well with milk
  • Take a bowl for fruits add your desired fruits. I have added musk melon and pineapple.
