Its been such a long time since I last posted and my sis seems to have slipped into a comfortable hibernation, I thought I shall break this hiatus with a post on the new year. This Ugadi was good as we cooked a lot and ate a lot :D.
Maamidikaya Pulihora(my version)
2 cups rice(sona masuri)
1.5 cups grated raw mango(kairi)
1/2 cup peanuts
Popu/tadka ingredients(chana dal, oil, mustard seeds, jeera,curry leaves, slit green chilies)
1/2 cup rice
1/2 cup chana dal
1/2 to 3/4 cup jaggery
1 spoon ghee
1-2 cups milk
chopped toasted cashews
1/2 cup grated fresh coconut
Mix the rice and dal and cook in milk until rice is cooked and the dal tender.
Add the jaggery slowly until its thoroughly melted and mixed.
Add ghee to this mixture and stir until the mixture thickens.
Finally add the cashews and the coconut and mix and enjoy!
We worked hard to make a traditional meal and enjoyed the heavy lunch!
