Pavaka Paalgova / Bittergourd Milksweet

The very idea of making a sweet out of the bitter bittergourd striked me, though no idea of where was the real origin of this weird idea.
Was spending a day thinking of a strange recipe to make out of the bittergourd and I was very sure not to make the regular recipes.
May be at that moment, I kid myself of a sweet recipe out of the bitter vegetable.
Fortunately, my mind took the funny thought as a challenge, and here I am with the recipe -
Pavaka Paalgova.

Plum Cake

The home made Plum Cake is an absolute treat :-)
Very simple yet yields a grand dish to celeberate or even to gift.

Salt Seedai / Uppu Seedai

Krishna Jayanthi festival brings immense pleasure to me, as I consider my 2 little boys to be Krishnas :-)
So do I make all the ' Palaharam ' loved by God Krishna.
And these Salt Seedais also are 1 among them.
Initial years, I had struggle lots while making them, as they will become soggy, soft or not crunchy.
Took many years before I got them perfectioned.
The recipe below is my success portion for the cruncy cruk cruk cruk Salt Seedais :-)
Wishing all Happy Krishna Jayanthi.

Usually, when my dosa batter gets sour, I tend to make these tiny little spiced up Paniyarams.
Just as simple as it is..

Green Gram Dal Rasam

I had cold and I had nothing left but some green gram dal handy.. I quickly decided to make a nice hot and sour drink out of them.
