Peanut Jaggery Modak Recipe | Peanut Jaggery Mothagam | Peanut Jaggery Kozhukattai | Ganesh Chaturthi Special Recipes

Happy Ganesh Chathurthi to everyone celebrating. I had a great time making Ulundu Kara Kozhukattai that I posted yesterday and this Peanut Modak. I shared it with my friends and they gave a big thumbs up for this recipe. During one of our regular calls, my friend Gomathy was telling that she made this peanut kozhukattai as the after-school snack for her kids. Also, she told that she usually has this powdered jaggery and peanut filling in the fridge and it comes in handy for any quick sweet fix. So, when I was planning for Vinayagar chathurthi recipes, I called and got this recipe from her. She gave an amazing tip for making the outer layer really soft and it worked like a charm for me. Let's move to the preparation steps:

Ulundu Kara Kozhukattai Recipe | Ulundu Pidi Kozhukattai | Ganesh Chathurthi Recipes

Though we don't celebrate Ganesh Chaturthi at home, I have seen my mum making kozhukattai during this festival season. She makes Paal Kozhukattai, Arisi Pidi Kozhukattai and Therali Kozhukattai. When I was a kid, I don't prefer any of these kozhukattai and I started loving it when I grow up. I ask mum to make kozhukattai whenever I feel like eating it and to continue that tradition I am making kozhukattai now. Happy has slowly started showing interest in Paal kozhukattai and I want to introduce a variety of kozhukattai to her.  Today, I am sharing the recipe of ulundu kozhukattai that I saw recently in Rak's Kitchen. This can be made it for breakfast or dinner and it goes very well with coconut chutney or any other spicy chutney. Do check out the collection of my Ganesh Chaturthi recipes from the blog. Let us move to the preparation:

Palkova Recipe | How to make Palkova with Milk | Traditional Palkova | Krishna Jeyanthi Special Recipes

Palkova is one of my childhood favourite sweets and I still remember the days my maternal grandfather take me to buy palkova from the nearest bakery (Sun bakery). I have tried Palkova with condensed milk earlier and I always wanted to make it from scratch. During last Diwali, I made this and we loved it to the core. I missed to post it on time as always and finally, posting it as one of the Krishna Jayanthi Special Recipes for this year. It is time-consuming but worth giving it a try. Let's see the simple recipe which uses milk and sugar as the main ingredient.

Long Beans Potato Poriyal Recipe | Karamani Urulai poriyal | Karamani Potato Poriyal

Beans varieties are my least preferred vegetable for making poriyal. I can eat it only in the form of paruppu usili. When I was in Chennai, my neighbour used to give me fresh karamani (long beans) from their home garden. I always end up making usili with that and once I asked her about the dishes she makes with karamani. She gave this recipe with the combination of potato. I tried it the next day and we all loved it so much. Let's see the steps involved in making this yummy poriyal:

Egg Kothu Parotta Recipe | Mutta Kothu parotta | Parotta with Egg

Most of us love to eat parotta from the roadside shops, though we all know it is not healthy. The taste of that maida parotta is really yummy, especially the spicy kothu parotta with lots of onions and green chillies. In my native, we have a helper akka whose husband makes the yummiest parotta. So, whenever we go on vacation, he comes home and makes parotta for us in our kitchen at least once.  Last time when he made, I reserved few parotta to try kothu parotta. Though I have not followed the restaurant style method of mixing plain salna at the end, it tasted very delicious. This egg kothu parotta can be made in a jiffy if we have parotta in hand either frozen or fresh. This post was lying in my draft for more than a year now and finally, the time has come for it to go live:) Let's see the simple preparation steps:

Beans Paruppu Usili Recipe | Paruppu Usili | Beans Usili

I am a very picky eater during my school days and mum struggles a lot to feed any vegetable. I slowly started trying vegetables when I was in the hostel and even during that time I never bothered to try beans and I hate it the most. Once my colleague at TCS brought beans paruppu usili and it was so yum. I have tasted the usili rice and many other usili dishes from his lunchbox. After I started cooking, I got the recipe from his mum and tried it. We liked it very much and started making it once in a while. Today I am sharing the recipe here and off to the recipe:
