After all is said and done, more is said than done!!!
Vethakuzhambu!!! My favorite!!And another personal favorite is my mother-in-law's mango pachadi!
what about maangaku? those kutty heavenly pieces of raw mango that go with anything?or is that a mal thing?
@Arthi - Vethakuzhambu, yes absolutely but I was concentrating and referring to the non-wet thotukura items.@Chitty Cat: Guess you are reffering to "mavadu" or manga thokku.
at least translate it into english/hindi/telugu or tell what are the ingredients. how wud we non-tamils understand otherwise?
@Hrish: Too bad, you are not a Tam. Sorry, not everything can be translated. Uff! :P
@popsie, U don't know how to translate. I asked a tamil friend and she translated it for me:Narthanga – Sweet lime Pickle(not exactly sweet lime, it’s a similar species)Veppalakatti – spicy neem balls.Mormozhga- dried, deep fried , salted green chilies soaked in curd.Mavalikazhang – it’s a kinda root(magliber in kannada) which is salted and stored in spicy curd or butter milk Mavadu – Alias vadu manga- small, really small mangos, stored in salted -spicy water .
btw did u know that my surname has come from "thotakura" :)
@Hrish: LOL, that I did not know. Btw read below:Narthanga- is NOT pickle. Sweet lime dried in salt - yes.Veppalakatti – INCORRECT - spicy neem balls. Spicy KARIPATHA(what's the English equivalent?) balls.Mormozhga - dried, deep fried , salted green chilies soaked in curd. The order is wrong. Reverse it.Mavalikazhang – it’s a kinda root(magliber in kannada) which is salted and stored in spicy curd or butter milk It is NOT kinda root, it is the SARSAPARILLA ROOT.Mavadu – Alias vadu manga- small, really small mangos, stored in salted - spicy water. That's Right
