Ullundhu Kali Recipe/Urad Dal Halwa Recipe/ How to make Ullundhu Kali with step by step photos & Video in both English & Tamil

Ullundhu Kali is an authentic and traditional dish of South India – Tamil Nadu. I am really sure all the girls from Tamil Nadu must be very very familiar with this ullundhu kali. The reason I say it is because this  ullundhu kali is given to girls when they attain puberty and throughout their teen age. Ullundhu kali is a must during this time because it strengthens the pelvic bone of the young girls and helps in strengthening the back. This dish is totally amazing it involves only three ingredients but loaded with proteins (urad dal), Iron & minerals (Jaggery) and vitamin E & Omega 6 (Gingelly oil). Even now the tradition of giving raw eggs and gingelly oil as a first thing in the morning for the first few days for the young girls during their first menstruation cycle continues in many families. They are considered to be very nutritious for the girls as they strengthen the uterus and prepare them for healthy child bearing later on in their adulthood. I still remember those days when I used to cry to eat the raw eggs so my grandma used to give boiled eggs, but I love gingelly oil.

Now coming back to Ullundhu kali, it must be made only with gingelly oil. Gingelly oil/Nalla ennai  is a cold pressed oil  derived from sesame seeds and has numerous health benefits. Cold pressed oils are produced through a combination of grinding and low heat without any addition of chemicals. Ongoing research also indicates that the rich presence of antioxidants and polyunsaturated fats could help to control blood pressure [source:Wikipedia]. Gingelly oil is called as “Nalla ennai” meaning “Good Oil” , so friends try to incorporate it in cooking as much as possible.

Moong Dal Vadai - Rajasthani Cuisine/Moong Dal Vadai Recipe/Paasi Paruppu Vadai Recipe/How to make Moong Dal Vadai with step by step photos

For this month’s IFC challenge we are exploring Rajasthani cuisine chosen by Mrs.Manjula of Desi Fiesta. Thanks a lot Shobana, Saraswathi and Manjula for all the wonderful challenges.

Rajasthani cuisine or Marwari recipes is a splendid array of unique, rich, colourful, spicy curries and mouth-watering delectable sweets. This style of cooking, is not only the mirror of wealth and prosperity, but also reflects the traditional warrior lifestyles [the Rajputs] and the availability of ingredients in this water starved region. Food that last for several days was given more preference. Due to the scarcity of water, the cuisine involves use of milk, yogurt or buttermilk to wet the gravies. Instead of greens, they use different types of local berries. The use of lentils and legumes, mainly Jowar, Bajra and Gram flour in their food keeps the nutritional value very high. Once cooked, these most of the traditional Rajasthani vegetables can be eaten over days and don’t need refrigeration for weather condition over there keep the food good. For this month’s challenge Mrs. Manjula Bharat chose a royal festive spread of Rajasthani recipes and I chose to do few Moong dal Vadai, Missi Roti, Jaipuri Sabji for the challenge. Do check out other Vadai Varieties here.
