Hi sunitha

U cud do mor kuzhambu, aviyal, poricha kootu, paruppu usili, vetha kuzhambu, araithu vitta sambar etc for routine samayal.

For tiffen like in night u cud make upma varieities like arisi upma, pongal, kichidi etc..apart from usual idli and dosa..

For a change u can make bisibelabath, curd rice for one week end or so...

u can make adai too for tiffen...

If u need recipes for any of these u can ask me.

Good luck
San

Subject:  kootu recipe
hi dear,
For kootu,
1.you could use any of the following veggies-ash gourd,yellow pumpkin,snake gourd,big yellow cucumber(called vellarikkai in tamil)maybe you could even try with zuchini.
2.amy dal such as chana dal,mung dal or even tuvar dal though it is not used much in kootu.
3.a paste of grated fresh coconut,green chillies/red chillies with or without cumin.This coconut paste is optional and used more in kerala iyer type cooking.
SO to assemble your kootu,dice veggie of your choice,add one of the above mentioned dals,veggies should be more in volume than dal,pressure cook them together.When cooked,add salt and turmeric powder,let boil once and season with mustard seeds,urad dal, 1-2 broken red chillies,curry leaves if you have,and maybe 1tbsp of fresh grated coconut which you fry to a golden brown in the seasoning oil.
To serve 4 people you will need about 500gms-750 gms of any of these veggies.Add 3tbsp this quantiity of channa dal or 2-3 tbsp of mung dal for this quantiity.If you are using coconut paste,grind 3-4 tbsp fresh coconut with 2 green chillies wiht 1/4 tsp cumin and add after the dal veggie is cooked.
Hope this helps you.I' ll be glad to know if your recipe came out well and hope you have a good time with your guests.

Hi dear Sunitha,
Some tamil iyers have breakfast luch dinner routines and some have brunch and tiffin arounhd 4 in the afternoon,check out with them.
idli dosa are tiffin ideas,for lunch dinner,you could try sambar,rasam,avial,kootu,porial types of combos.Do you know how to make these or need help?
General rule,dont try new recipes on guests.
