    Hello Friends,

    During my last visit to Bengaluru,in one of the Rayaru Matha I visited, I ate some lemon peel chutney, It was so delicious that I still remember it longingly. The person who made it was not open to share the recipe so I let it go.

    I have searched the net but could not find a recipe which seemed right. Do any of you have the recipe for lemon skin chutney or any thoughts on how I can make it? Sure would appreciate if you share it.



  19. Posted by Indira on December 12, 2019 at 9:37 pm

    Hi Meera,

    I made the Celery Chutney today. The taste came out really good but the color became brown. Could be because of tamarind. I see in the photo you have given that the color is green. Any idea where I went wrong? Thanks.


  20. Posted by Indira on December 10, 2019 at 9:47 am

  63. Posted by Anand on February 15, 2015 at 1:33 am

    Don’t mean to split hairs. But ‘hotte baaka’ , as I have seen, is used in a situational sense, for example, he ate so much during the marriage lunch like a ‘hotte baaka’. thindi potha seems a quality ingrained in the individual. My 2 cents….


    • Posted by Sarveswara on February 15, 2015 at 11:44 pm

      Dear Anand, thank u for the msg. I agree that ‘ hotte baaka’ is not the same as ‘ sapattu raman’. Hotte baka is one who overeats. probably the english equivalent of sapattu raman is ‘foodie’ . as per wikepedia , “A foodie is a gourmet, or a person who has an ardent or refined interest in food and alcoholic beverages.[1] A foodie seeks new food experiences as a hobby rather than simply eating out of convenience or hunger.’,


  64. Posted by Anand on February 10, 2015 at 4:42 pm

    Another (near) equivalent for Tamil ‘Saapatu Raman’ is ‘thindi potha’ in Kannada 🙂


  65. Posted by Malini Rao on January 22, 2015 at 2:29 pm

    Namaskara! Thank you very much for this awesome blog! It is like an oasis in a desert 🙂
    We are Madhwa brahmins from Bengaluru, living in Dallas TX for several years now. I would love to know the traditional sweets and snacks (Bhaksha) prepared during Upanayana ceremony , especially for the Mathubhojana. We are performing my son’s thread ceremony soon and would love to hear back from you soon.

    Also, if you could post a recipe for traditional Tengulu and Mucchore, that would be great!

    Thanks again!


    • Posted by meeraghu on January 22, 2015 at 2:52 pm

      Thanks, Malini. It has been ages since I attended any Upanayana. The last one I attended was my Elder Brothers. However, the sweets which are prepared are items like Boondi Laadu, Mysore Pak, Jalebi, Chiroti.

      As far as traditional recipes, they are posted long time back. Please check the food section here:

    dear madam, i have visited this blog several times. but this is the first time I am exploring this particular section for madhwa-recipes. great job. being a ‘saapattu raman’ ( I don’t think that there is a kannada equivalent for this word ) I like this page very much. one thing that springs to my mind whenever there is a madhwa marriage is ‘ majjige palidya’. please do post the recipe for ‘majjige palidya’ if you know the same .

    • Posted by Ravi on February 10, 2015 at 10:54 am

      In kannada we call it as”Koochu Bhatta”(sapat raman)


      • Posted by Sarveswara on February 14, 2015 at 12:53 am

        Dear Ravi, thank u very much for your response. I was not aware of this usage. I thought ‘ koochu bhatta’ is a bookworm who always keeps reading books . that is why kannada proverb ‘ ಓದಿ ಓದಿ ಮರುಳಾದ ಕೂಚು ಭಟ್ಟ ‘.

    Please do visit our matta when you are in the area.

      • Posted by Anand on August 10, 2014 at 6:24 pm

        Sorry, that is not a ‘rayara mutt’ . Rayara mutt means it should have Raghavendra Swamigala brundavana consecrated properly with ‘ mrutthika’ obtained from Moola Brundavana in Mantralaya. The San Jose mutt is a branch of Sri Puttige Mutt.
        Just stating facts. Sri Sugunendra Swamiji of Puttige Mutt is doing yeoman service to the cause of spreading Madhwa philosophy and traditions overseas.

      • Posted by Archana on August 14, 2014 at 4:43 pm

        @ Anand: Yes this is run by priests who are affiliated to Sri Puttige Mutt. There is a brundavana already, but they have recently obtained Mrutthika from the Moola Brundavana and there are plans to consecrate a proper Brundavana soon.

    Madhwa’s are specialized in making gojju’s. Do you have the receipe for lemon gojju as well as raisin’s gojju ? I used to eat that a lot in my friend’s place. Thank you.


    • Posted by lakshmimurthy on June 25, 2013 at 7:14 pm

      To prepare lemon gojju you have to follow the same procedure i,e. stir fry lemon until brown and rest of the ingredients remain the same
