When I started this blog my main intention was to treasure some of the traditional recipes from my family.
There are certain recipes from my grand mother that only my mom knows now, after grand mother passed away. If I don't learn those recipes from her and pass on to future generations, that's it. They are gone.
Saving those authentic traditional recipes in a blog on the world wide web is a great way to preserve them for ever I thought and that's how this blog was born.
This is an instant no cooking required recipe. My mom usually makes this during summer.
When the temperatures are in 100s, and the last thing you want to do is stand near the stove, these no cooking required recipes come in handy.
Water: 2 cups
Tamarind juice: 2 tbsp
Jaggery: 2 tbsp
Salt to taste
Onion(large): 1/2 finely chopped
Green chillies: 2
Cilantro(finely chopped): 2 tsp
Add tamarind juice and jaggery to the water and mix well until the jaggery completely melts in the water.
Add chopped onions and green chillies.
Adjust the salt.
Garnish with chopped cilantro.
Serve with hot steamed rice.
Suggestions: Jaggery can be omitted if you don't like it sweet.
