TRADITIONAL TAMIL

Hailing from an authentic Tamil Brahmin family, my supreme love for Traditional
Brahmin recipes is thoroughly justified. However, I totally love trying out recipes
from different cuisines. Few months back when I met some of my relatives at a
family wedding, there was a demand from my cousins to compile a post for
Traditional Brahmin recipes. The idea behind this was to get a complete list of
authentic Brahmin recipes that include No Onion No Garlic recipes. Even today
there are many families that do not include onion and garlic in their daily diet. Many
old people also avoid eating vegetables like drumstick, radish, carrots, bottle gourd
as they are not considered Satvik foods or foods that control your mind. However,
with changing times and with increased awareness of the various health benefits that
each of these vegetables have, people (including me), have started frequently
including these items in their diet. So after much contemplation, here I have tried my
best to compile most of the Tamil Brahmin recipes. What makes each culture so
unique is the wide list of rituals that are followed during festivals and the pujas

performed at home. Keeping this in mind my sister’s blog Kalachar gives details
about the practices in a typical Tamil Brahmin household during pujas and festivals.

tomato sweet pachadi
Generally at our place, we will the system of having lunch at 10 am and by 2 30 pm we will have coffee|tea, and by 3 30 we will have a Tiffin and dinner will be mostly the left overs from the morning cooking. If needed we will make a vegetable only. But later on due to health reasons we changed the dinner to chapathis. And after coming to Singapore, the entire system changed and we follow the breakfast, lunch and dinner concept only. But in my in laws place they still follow the same system and even when we go there for vacation we follow the similar one.
I have posted a detailed note on Sumangali parathanai .

While browsing some South Indian recipes, I landed to this post. And I remembered by childhood days when the lunch was at 10 O'Clock in the morning, then Coffee at 2 O'Clock and so on. Even during my childhood, we rarely had food with Onion and Garlic in it.

Loved this beautiful compilation. Best Regards, Amarendra

Dear MS.Jayashri ! Thank you for your service in online !!! Please re work the Adhirasam Recipe.. I am a Chef working in a five star hotel Around 14 yrs exp. first time i have seen ur blog. great!!!! The athirasam rice flour needs to grind coarsely not fne paste. you have to pestle for the flour coarsley and mix with the jaggery syrup, pinch of salt and keep it for min five days in the room temp to ferment, the sixth day add (opt)sesame seeds and elaichi powder mix once and start shape it and fry… you will get heritage Athirasam. … please try and taste,..i am from trichy. i learnt from my grand ma.. many times i have made it.

Regards,
Chef Suresh

Thank you sir, my mom learnt this from a samayal mami during a srardam. Actually she made the dough on the same day and fried the adirasams on the same day too. In our houses we do not make athirasams on a regular basis, even for diwali too we donot make. But will try out your version and let you know how it turned out. Thanks for the feedback sir.

I am really loving the theme/design of your website. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility problems? A handful of my blog audience have complained about my site not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari. Do you have any tips to help fix this problem?
