Shocked on hearing the name....its a very common dish among the rural areas. In those days food is medicine for all....only now we are taking medicines for all ailments. But people cooked in such a way that it will prevent you from diseases at the same time , it will cure your ailments. We forgot those precious recipes a few generations back, thats why we end up paying heavily to the doctor for simple cold and fever. Even now in my native places my granny will cook these kind of recipes. For example "Kalyana Murungai vadai", a roadside grown plant, used as a main ingredient for this. If you have severe cold, you can have this and for your surprise the next day you wont even have the traces of cold. The taste also will be divine. Likewise my granny will use castor oil alone, for frying "More Milagai, as it will reduce the "Kabam" created during the intake of chillies.I am remembering the golden childhood I had, where I had an oppurtunity to have all these forgotten precious recipes. After entering into this fast and furious city life i never had an opportunity to visit my native. Miss you granny......
Coming back to the recipe....
My dad made a visit to my native. My granny used to pack a lot of stuff like this while
returning, and this time for my home she has sent dried neem flower. She used to collect
this neem flower for a month, wash it and dry it in shade and store it.
This recipe will remove all the worms and bad things gathered in our stomach. Good for
diabetic people, will drastically reduce the sugar level.
Neem Flower(dried) - 1 cup
Red Chilly - 14
Urad dhal - 1 tbsp
Tamaraind - Goose berry sized
Coconut - 2 tbsp
Salt - To taste
Roast the neem flower without any oil carefully till the color changes to light brown and keep it aside.
Then roast all the other ingredients with 1 tsp of oil.
Add all the items together in the mixer and grind it to a smooth paste.
Have it with hot white rice (you wont feel the bitter taste much)....hahahaha you cant have it when it gets cold as you will feel the bitter taste more that time.
I am sending this to Grammathu Kaimanam/Village Special Recipe Event hosted by Shama.
