Mullangi ~ White Radish has a strong pungent smell which makes it an unwanted guest in many homes. Though it smells awful, it is still under my weekly menu because of its medicinal qualities. In simple words… it purifies blood, excellent for curing piles, constipation, urinary, liver and stomach disorders. If you are a fan of spicy Thai food… you will know what I am talking about. My mom makes this delicious sambar in 2 steps which involves pressure cooking, which does the work in less than 20 minutes if you have double pan pressure cooker, something like this…..
Split Red gram (Thuvaram Paruppu)
Tomato pappu and Avakai is a very yummy combination
A regular in south indian households..
Pumpkin or white gourd is very good for the heart, destroys the excessive humors of bile and phlegm in the body, very nourishing, semen builder and nourishment to the pregnant woman during their pregnancies and also clears away the constipation during that time.
Sambar is always favourite for all…we all have sambar as a sidedish for idli, pongal and dosai….This style of making sambar is very easy and tasty too….In our home we used to try many types of making sambar..this is one of my style…

Venthayam milagu podi. I got this recipe from Aval vikatan – a Tamil magazine given by Rajam Murali – a beautician. This powder can take everyday with rice to get healthy, soft and shinny hair. It's mild bitter in taste….so it's your choice.
