Just as I can handle copious amounts of coconut, I love sour food. I have a problem with acidity and so I don't indulge in sour, hot or spicy food too often. But on Pongal, one of the dishes we make is Lemon Rice. I love eating it with another citrus flavoured dish, the karnakizhangu mashiyal.
2 Karnakizhangu, peeled and diced
1 tbsp Tamarind Paste
2 Red Chillies
1 tsp Oil
1/4 tsp Mustard seeds
1/4 tsp Asafoetida
7-8 Curry leaves
Juice of 1-2 Limes
Salt to taste
Pressure cook the vegetable with the tamarind paste and red chillies. Grind to a paste.
Heat oil in a pan. Add the mustard seeds and asafoetida. When the mustard splutters, add the curry leaves. Add the paste along with the salt and cook for a few minutes. Add the lime juice.
Serve hot with rice. Or, if you're like me, enjoy a double dose of lime and have it with Lemon Rice. I'm sending this to SunshineMom for this month's edition of FIC-Yellow.
I was at Divya's blog and I noticed that she had a recipe for breadfruit fritters. I googled to get my own recipe so that I could share that link with her. The google search for Divkadgye Phodiyo actually revealed this link as the the top most link:
I was curious to see what that recipe looked like and I found my picture sitting right on top. I also noticed that the recipe was copied from my blog word for word. Someone called AndhraMirchi blogged about this dish on September 16, 2008, whereas the original post on my blog was posted on September 13, 2007:
I have left a comment asking her to remove the post. I have written to Sulekha.com outlining my problem. I do hope something will come of this.
