I will be posting naadan recipes. I have a good collection with me, all of which are collected, overheard, or seen in cookery shows.
Let us start with Puzhukku and Chammanthy
Van payar (red cow pea)
Kappa ( Cassava)
Kachil (yam)
Chena ( Elephant foot yam)
Chembu ( Taro, Colacasia)
Coconut 1 grated
Jeera 1/2 tsp
Green Chillie 8
Small onions (shallots) 15
turmeric powder 1/4 tsp
Salt to taste
Boil Vanpayar. When it is almost done, add Kappa, add chena after 5 minutes, add kachil and chembu after 5 minutes. Once all are cooked well, add salt, drain and then add the rest of the ingredients ground to a coarse paste and mix well preferebly with a strong stick. Add Curry leaves and two tbsp of coconut oil , mix well and keep covered until chammanthy is ready.
Red chillie powder 1 tbsp
black pepper powder 1 tsp
shallots- small onion crushed 10
