Thoothuvalai Keerai Chutney

Thoothuvalai Keerai [Solanum Trilobatum] is an excellent herb with numerous and amazing health benefits. It is used in treating common cold, cough and to get rid of phlegm in our chest. Thoothuvalai is basically a thorny creeper with purple flowers and red fruits and grows really very fast. Thoothuvalai creeper has lots of thorns in the leaves, so when your plucking it, you should be very careful. My best advice is to use scissors when cleaning the leaves. Many recipes like thoothuvalai kashayam, thoothuvalai rasam etc are made in many households. Thoothuvalai is available in vegetable markets or from street vendors, but I pluck it from my mom’s garden whenever I get a chance. For now, I am sharing Thoothuvalai Keerai Chutney which is an excellent side dish for idlis and dosas. I know Thoothuvalai is not available in most of the places, but if you come across or get a chance, then do try to make some chutney and reap the benefits of the same. Meanwhile, do check out other interesting and tempting chutney varieties here.

Baba Ganoush – Middle Eastern Delight

Baba Ganoush is a dish made out of Eggplant/Aubergine/Kathrikkai, along with tahini paste, garlic, lemon juice and olive oil. The Eggplant/Aubergine is baked or broiled over an open flame and the skin is peeled out. This is done to make the Eggplant pulp soft and to get a smoky taste. It is a very common and popular dip eaten along with kuboos/pita bread in the Middle East. I have had this Baba Ganoush several times in Lebanese restaurants when I used to live in USA. Another very similar and authentic dip/chutney made in Tamil Nadu [South India] is the Sutta Kathrikkai Chutney which also has the smoky taste along with Indian spices and seasoning.

Peerkangai Thol Thogaiyal/Ridge gourd Peel Chutney

It is rich is fiber and very delicious and traditional thogaiyal of Tamil Nadu. I wrote a few benefits about ridge gourd/peerkangai in my previous post and I want to share a few more here as well. Peerkangai helps in lowering the blood and urine sugar level, not only that it helps to purify, restore and nourish liver and also helps to cure skin diseases like eczema, psoriasis etc.  When the ridge gourd is allowed to mature and dry in the vine, it is later harvested like a sponge. This sponge is one great natural exfoliating product used for bathing to remove dead skin cells and thereby leaving the skin soft and conditioned. I think with this note I will move on with the recipe. Check out other chutney & thogaiyal varieties here.
