  14. Drinks for Summer

    One Bunch of Coriander leaves Chopped
    50/100 Grams Ginger Chopped
    Lemon :2
    200 Grams of Jaggery
    Cardamom: 10
    First grind chopped Coriander leaves and Ginger in the MIxi, and pour hot water in that
    and mix it well, then you will have to filter it. Keep a pan with water and Jaggery on stove,
    you make it till it becomes sweet water then add the extract juice as above and add cardamom powder. After it has cooled you can add lemon juice and fill into the bottle.
    You can drink it by adding water if the essence/juice is strong.
    This juice is good for digestion and best drink for summer.

    Try it and send your comments.

  16. Posted by vani joshi on July 12, 2013 at 9:55 am

    I want to know how correctly bisibele prepared.,vani umesha..


  17. Since nobody has made any response to this post,I considered that the menu which
    explained is well or you may not be interested in this Adai.


  18. To-day in our state we are used to celebrate one “Nonpu” i.e. fasting,it comes every year ‘March 14th (Tamil Month Masi and Panguni will join time) we will say Kamakshi
    Nonpu, Savithri Nonpu or Karadaiyan Ninpu. Forthis we will make Adai:

    Raw Rice : 250 Grams
    Jaggery: 500 grams
    Cardemon powder
    Karamani (Red) 100 grams

    First we should soak the rice for two hours, then fllter the water and dry the rice
    by putting on the dry towel for some time and put into the mixi and make powder like
    Rava, and keep pan on the stove and fry the powder.flour until it doesn’t stick on the
    pan. Then you keep water according to the flour( 1 cup flour, One and half cup water)
    Keep water on the pan and heat it well and then add Jaggery powder till it melts into
    water and pour/put flour in the jaggery heated water and keep mixing it till it doesn’t
    stick on the pan and add coconut crashed, and Cardemon pwder and keep that
    paste by covering one plate on that, you can add “Karamani” grain cooked with this
    cooked flour. After 30/45 minutes you take that cooked flour and make like ball
    and make vadai and keep it on breath Idli plate and stream it for 5 to 10 minutes.
    And take it with help of spoon from the idli plate. It will be so tasty.

    For Salt Adai, same method, instead of Jaggery & Cardemon you have to put
    chopped Green chillies, Ginger pieace, Green Leaves, Coconut, into boiling
    water and add Rice Rava Flour and mix it till doesn’t stick on the pan and keep
    it aside and after 30 minutes you take it and make it like “Vadai and keep it breath
    Idli plate and make it stream for 5 to 10 minutes. You can add boiled “Karamani
    with flour before making vadai.

    You can eat this Adai with Butter. It will be tasty.



  19. In sweet pongal, you don’t have to fry the rice & Moongdal till it gets brownish colour
    and also you don’t need to make it rava size, you can put rice & and little bit moongdal
    having with light fry and put into the pan by adding sufficient water, after fully cooked,
    you can make Jagerry power and pour some water and heat it, till it gets liquid, then you fillter it to take sand from that, that filtered Jagerry water(Bagu) you add with cooked
    rice, add ghee, then mix it well and keep the pan/cooker on the stove,till it mixed well,
    then you add Cashew, Carodom powder. This is for Sweet Pongal”.

    I hope your tongue will get water, while reading this, after tasting it how would you feel, please imagine yourself.



  20. Posted by Anonymous on February 19, 2013 at 9:50 am

    its a modified version of our pongal where in we dont powder rice and moongdal ..having it with sambar..not too sure..i wudnt do


  21. You keep one plate of kali, and small cup of Veg.sambar(It should be Solid). You take
    kali and touch the sambar and eat it, it will be deligious. Otherwise you can eat Sweet
    Kali alone. It depends on your taste.

    Thank you



  22. We can call it Sweet Kalee or Sweet Uppuma. I don’t know how to make it understand you this name.

    Thanks for your queries



    • Posted by meeraghu on February 11, 2013 at 9:55 am

      Ok. You also say “Side Dish for this, you can put all vegetables and keep sambar. It will be more deligious.”. How can this be eaten with sambar if it is sweet? Just wondering what this dish is?


  23. My Presentation : SWEET kALI
    Ingredients: Raw Rice :200grams
    Jaggery:: 400 Grams
    Moong Dhall 10 Grams
    Cashew 5 Grams
    Cardamom 2 Grams
    Ghee 50 Grams.
    First keep the pan on the stove, place Raw Rice and Moong Dhall, lit the stove, fry the
    both(Rice & Moong Dhall) till it comes to brownish colour, then you put the same into
    Mixi, make it power like broken Rava, keep a pan on the stove, pour 500grams of water and heat it upto 100 Centigrade, put the broken rice rava, and mix it till it cooked
    fully, then add Jaggery powder, till it mixes well, then you add Ghee small amount,
    you keep mixiing till it doesn’t stick on the pan, after that you put fried Cashew, Cardamon powder, Coconut and Ghee. It will be more tasty when you eat. You
    can give to your Children when they return from School.

    Side Dish for this, you can put all vegetables and keep sambar. It will be more deligious.

    Shanthi S.
