This is yet another variation of the more/moar kozhambu, made with buttermilk. The first variety is a simple buttermilk recipe blended with coconut, green chilies, and jeera and tempered with coconut oil. This one is a slightly more elaborate version of it, with soaked dals, toasted urad dal and chilies, methi seeds, and of course coconut and green chilies! The name varutharacha (varuthu + araicha) gives away the recipe – varuthu is to fry, and aracha means ground. Other than the frying of spices which takes a few minutes, this is a quick recipe just like the first variety. This recipe is from the collection of “Samaithu Paar” Volume 2, by Meenakshi Ammal.

Simple, quick and satisfying snack that can be made in about 30 mins. Made with semolina/cream of wheat and onions, and mixed vegetables.
The ultimate comfort food of South Indian cuisine. This is a tamarind/tomato based soupy dish, great by itself or with rice and a simple stir-fried vegetable. After days of feasting/travel, I always crave a simple rasam.
