Ullundhu Paal/Urad dal Milk/Urad dal Payasam/Urad dal Kheer/Health drink for Kids - Tamil Nadu Special

As a parent and mom of two kids I am always on the lookout of healthy and tasty food that can be made easily without any hassles. This Ullundhu paal/Urad dal payasam is one such recipe I came across in Vikatan long time ago. Ullundhu Paal is a special, traditional and authentic health drink prepared in Thirunelveli district of Tamil Nadu. It is a very healthy drink, prepared with milk and palm sugar. This Ullundhu pal is a must for girls and growing children as energy booster and helps in maintaining a healthy body and mind.  Do check out urad dal kali/urad dal halwa, yet another urad dal dish made especially for girls. A short note about the panam/panang kalakandu which is used in preparing this milk. Panang kalkandu is a kind of rock sugar made from panam pathaneer[Palm tree] which is extracted from the flower of palmera tree. It is loaded with medicinal value, reduces the body heat, cures cough, cures gastric problems and is rich in minerals like magnesium, chromium and iron.  Try this authentic and traditional health drink of Tamil Nadu and you will surely love it. Check out other Payasam Varieties here.

Rice Kanji – Special Kanji Made for Amman

Friends, I will not be in town for another 5 days, I am taking a short break, will be missing you all. Before going on break, I wanted to post my favourite and delicious “Rice Kanji” which I prepared for amman and sharing it with you all. Om Shakthi…

There are different types of rice kanji prepared in South India like the roasted rice kanji, rice kanji with vegetables, rice kanji made with brown rice and so on. But this is a very special “Rice Kanji – Prepared for Amman” as neivedhyam in Nagapattinam and nearby districts.  This rice kanji is prepared in large scale instead of kezhvaragu koozh and distributed to everyone after the special prayers are done to amman. Along with this kanji the other neivedhyams prepared for amman are paanagam, neermor, maavilagu, thullu maavu etc. Since my parents are from Nagapattinam and Thanjavore we follow the same tradition of preparing rice kanji during the month of Aadi and offer it to amman and do the special prayers. I had mentioned about this rice kanji in few of my earlier post, but it is time for me to post this recipe as well. I will very soon be posting other types of kanji in my future post. For now...
