Maaladu – Roasted Spilt gram Ladoo

Diwali feast has begun… with sweets n savouries… I was just soo excited when I made my first sweet for this festival yesterday… That too my most favourite one… never really tried hands at making them from scratch.. coz I love it the way my Amma does it.. No one can beat tat flavour ūüôā
I remember burning my hands 2 years back… when I tried to make a ladoo’s… but then I ditched the whole process…

Cilantro Balls – Kothamili thogayal

Its a great accompaniment with many of Tam Brahmin kitchen dishes like Keerai Masiyal- Spinach mash , Molagutal and many more. It has been my brother’s & mine hot favourite and I remember my mother storing it in Jar for 1 month or so everytime she made it.
Some of my pre marriage dinner time nostalgic memories are linked with this pickle like thing.With my mother’s receipe in my cook book , I tried to replicate it .. It was just the same in GUI & taste. What a sigh of relief when I completed it & had it with curd rice.
