The Winning Story

There is a complaint that I am not posting about indian cooking much for long time...Its time to relieve the blame that made on me..I got a call to take part in cookery contest for rotary conference that held in chennai trade center....I didnt ask any further detail and planned to go ahead with a dish...Later the concern caught me in person "Are you going to cook Sangakala unavu?"..I just looked back to confirm if she is asking only me....I raised my brows and she explained It should not be any dish,only the ancient food...
So,I need to do cook the dishes with the limited ingredients which was available in BC's...Its must be with Brown Rice,Hand pound Rice(Kai kuthal Arisi),Kavuni Arisi(Black Rice),Ragi,Whole Wheat............


                             I have chosen the theme to make all the three southern states of ancient breakfasts that is made in clay pot(Man Panai)....I have heard many times about karnataka modhee from my grand mother,She explains this interesting breakfast for workers how they made it in karnataka on her childhood days....From there,I got the modhee procedure...For Kerala,I choosed kelvargu Puttu,which is easy and breezy and my favourite one..And for the last, our Thai Tamil nadu breakfast,Kai Kuthal Arisi Modagam Sweet/Sour dishes which i got from Aachi(chettiyar aunty),Mogana Kalavai(Ancient Sambar) and Karupatti Kapi.....


And One more Category of any healthy drink....I chosed to make Herbal Sip which is made out of 5 kinds of green leaves....I really had a big time doing the whole process....I geared up my friends(ya,the real ones) and my husband to help me....One of my friend helped me to search on sangakala unavu source,the other helped me to take care of hansika and the other took care of my american guest....I had put my mind off  on all these issues except getting done for the contest.....

There goes my final breathe for the contest,I won it on both the categories......Appa,Alai Vidugna...I felt as such when i won.Though it was tough,I luved the whole experience trying new dishes on Ancient (Healthy) Ingredients for last 20 days..I enjoyed every bite of other contestants dishes too(still relishing it).....It really took a new turn in my cooking...Sure,I am going to post all the winning recipes soon and also would luv to cook more of our ancestors healthy dishes....
