MORKALI AND PULI- MA

Heres another tongue tickling recipe for tiffin time....Can make it for morning breakfast or evening tiffin. Good for health and tasty too

Morkali
Ingredients
Raw rice flour - 250 gm
Sour curd - 1 tumbler
Mustard - 1 tbspUluthamparuppu
1 tbspAsafoetida
A littleRed chillies
2Curry leaves
1 sprigCoriander leaves - A little (optional)
Refined oil - 1 tbsp
Salt to taste
Method
Mix the rice flour in the curd and add a spoon of salt. Splutter the mustard, uluthamparuppu, red chillies and asafoetida in the oil. Pour the mixed rice flour in it and stir well. Add the curry leaves and coriander leaves and allow the mixture to cook well. Stir continuously till the raw smell goes off.

Puli Ma (Puli Uppuma)
Use all the above ingredients. As an alternative, you can use tamarind juice in place of the curd. But here u must mix it like chappati dough. Add tamarind juice, salt, asafoetida and make the dough then split it into pieces and put in the oil after thalichi kottardhu.....It should be done so well that it should come out udhur-udhira(seperate) and lo and behold u have some tasty Puli ma or puli uppuma.
Puli Ma takes a lot more oil than Mor-kali as to get seperate it drinks oil.
Mor-kali is very good for health.....Can be given in case of sicknesses also. It is tasty and easy to digest.

Tip : To enhance the taste of both can add 4-5 of Mor molaghai / thair molaghai (the dried and pickled chilly). You must fry it first before u add it. It tastes very good and adds that extra zest, a little of that extra spice and tastes oh so yum!!!!!

Please do try these recipes.
