Mango paratha recipe | Mango recipes

Mango parathas

Mango paratha is a interesting recipe which flashed me, while i was having my lunch with my friends yesterday. We went out for lunch yesterday in Kailash parbat restaurant here, and they have a wide variety of fresh mango recipes in their menu card. Being a hardcore fan of mangoes, i was simple gazing at the list and one of my friend ordered a mango drink from that list. Though it is a juice, they added little crushed cumin seeds in that. I tasted that and was quite impressed by its taste. On our way back picked up of big bag full of mangoes and today morning, with my own creativity, did this simple mango paratha. It turned out pretty good and i had this for my lunch with boondi raitha. Try this out at home and enjoy the summer with mangoes. Stay tuned for more mango recipes coming up on Jeyashri's kitchen.

Potato masal recipe | Urulai pottalam | Madurai special

Urulai kizhangu pottalam
Uruali pottalam | potato masal is a spicy masala curry made with potato , packed and served in lotus leaf. If you are brought up in Madurai or visited Madurai ( a town in south of Tamil nadu), then you must be knowing about this. We get this in the original nei mittai kadai shop near the west gopuram tower. Whenever we go to pudhu mandapam for shopping, we buy this potato masal and take it home and eat with curd rice.  Sometimes during weekend when my dad goes to the city to meet any friend, he buys this potato pottalam for us and we used to wait for him patiently and then eat our lunch. This potato masala will be very spicy . It has been many years now since i tasted this potato masal. When i was casually chatting with the author of Puliyogare travels some time back, he shared with me the episode of his food trial in madurai and about his experience in the original nagapattinam nei mittai kadai. Based on that i recipe idea and with some inputs from my friend who recently visited her parents in madurai, i have finally made this Uruali masala. This can be even served with poori or stuffed inside paratha or can be had with sambar rice and rasam rice as a curry too.
