Great store of all the forgotten tastes. I value your collection. My wife and I have seriously taken note of your recipes and these days we are restoring our domestic cooking to what it must be. Thanks for keeping our traditions alive.

PS. I didn't see a recipe for puli-kuthi poduthuval. It remains a fine examle of Iyer cooking.

Sheela Narasimhan said...

Very interesting. I remembered my childhood days when my mother would make all these dishes.I would surely like to add some dishes to my daily cooking which I recollected while going through ur blog. Thks mami for the wonderful blog and making cooking enjoyable to all youngsters who abstain from cooking chores.

hi the word molakootal, verumarisi adai, pachadi, idichu pizhinja paayasam wow everything flows like music to me. really i appreciate your efforts for our palakkadian receipes.

Hi,

Have yet to click the different links on this page... But just seeing the list of foods that we grew up with (grandpa places: N.Paravur and Alapuzha).. I let out a contented sigh. Now we can try out every single recipe. Thanks a lot for all the effort.

Am able to write w/o seeing the recipes because I have already seen the Elai Adai recipe - just authentic - and the photos of that look EXACTLY like my Mom makes..

Thanks & Regards,
Raman R

I also have to tell you that I tried your spicy vazhakai curry, ven pongal and semiya payasam- they turned out so well. And today, I am trying the upma kozhakatai out! look forward to eating it soon!

Hi Kaveri!

Thank you so much for creating this website. In today's day and age where our traditional cooking seems o be dying, especially with younger people like us, your website is an inspiration to keep up that cooking and let our next generation know what wonderful recipes our traditional cooking has.

I tried out your venpongal, spicy vazhakai curry and semiya payasam recipes so far and they turned out very well. Thank you so much once again!
