KANDATIPPILI RASAM RECIPE | PATHIYA SAMAYAL RECIPES


Kandantippili rasam i wanted to post for a long time , but somehow i didn’t search for that in Singapore, but when my mom visited me last month bought this for me and i wanted to start a series of recipes which we used to give for moms after delivery , commonly called as Pathiya samayal in Tamil and Postpartum food in English.  My athai used make this for me when i delivered my second kid Varun, and  she used to tell this kandantippili rasam helps in digestion too. Now a days we generally do not follow pathiyam after delivery and in my case too when i deliverd my first child 12 years back my mom strictly followed pathiyam but for the second one after 4 years i never follow any strict pathiyam. This kandantippili i don’t know what is is the English term of this but you can get this easily in most of the small shops in chennai. I will be posting some Postpartum food which we generally follow at our house, more frequently here.

  9. Good one Jeyashri... I just came out from the pathiya saappadu..:-) But it would be good if we include those foods in our daily menu. I am planning to do so.. you know what? My family members tired of getting this kadathippili and after a small search, we got it in naatu marunthu kadai here in chennai.
