Thalagam... Aadi dish....

Come aadi and this dish becomes a popular one.. Esp on Aadi chevvai, ie. the tuesdays in the tamil month of Aadi(which is NOW) and so gramma went about getting Thalagam done for lunch...

This is a dish that is a variant of sambar from our homes.. i.e. from Tamil Nadu (esp Tirunelveli side)..
its a speciality dish that is made in the tamil month of Aadi(july 15th to Aug 16th) ,esp on tuesdays.. Here's how to make it , from what my gramma told me jus now...

Ingredients
Vegetables- like brinjal, white pumpkin,carrots,potato,peas,snake gourd,flat beans, and any other veggie you like -chop them up into big cubes - 3cups (depends on number of people )
Sesame seeds - 1tsp (dry roasted)
Red Chillies - 4 to 5
Coconut - 1/2cup
Broken Urad Dal - 1tbsp
Tamarind water -11/2cup
Salt to taste
Turmeric Powder 1/4 tsp
Jaggery a small piece - the size of a lemon

Mustard seeds -1tsp
Oil -1 tbsp
Curry leaves - 4-5


Here's how you make it...

1. Dry roast the sesame seeds,set aside, add some oil to the pan and roast the red chillies and broken urad dal
Add grated coconut to the roasted ingredients and grind into a smooth paste


2. Boil the vegetables in tamarind water with salt,and a tiny pinch of turmeric powder.

Now add the ground paste to this and let it boil for a couple of mins till the flavor of masalas mixes with the veggies.

3. Add a little jaggery and let it simmer for abt 5mins


4. Season it with mustard seeds, curry leaves and it is ready to be eaten..

Best eaten with Pongal or with another south indian sweet dish(that is made on the day called Thiruvadurai), called Kali.. i dont like it much,so not bothered finding out how its cooked, but shall enquire and post the same once i complete the mission...
