This is for you Kavitha. Enjoy this with rice or idiyapam.  (thanks Kavi for the reminder Wink)

Sothi (Basic)

1 cup thick coconut milk
2 cups thin coconut milk
1/2 onion, sliced
2 green chillies, silted lengthwise
tamarind (size of gooseberry)

In a pot, pour in thin coconut milk, onions, chillies, tumeric, tamarind (can include the seeds) and salt.

Allow it to boil for at least 10 mins. Then finally add thick coconut milk. After one boil, shut down the flame. You can add thick milk according to the thickness of the sothi you want. When you add thick milk, keep stirring so that the milk should not curdle.  As alternative, you can use lime juice. Allow the sothi to cool a bit, then add the juice, make sure you keep stirring while adding the juice.  Otherwise it will curdle.

Tomato sothy

All the same as the above, but add ripe tomatoes, quartered together with thin coconut milk.

Vendayam sothi

All as basic sothy. 

In wok, a little oil, fry onions, dried chillies, fenugreek, mustard, cumin seeds, urad dhall, and curry leaves. Then add the thin milk and rest of the items as basic. After adding thick milk, just before removing from flame, add more curry leaves

Fish sothy

All as Basic sothy. Choose your favourite fish. Add the fish at the same time as thin milk. Quantity of milk should be more. Add tomatoes. Rest do as the basic sothy.

Easy beezzy....... Big smile

Sue Akka this recipe is for you. Its a signature dish from my aunt's hotel in India.



3 slices of fish ( pomfret, salmon, or spanish mackerel, or any of your choice )
3 tbs coconut scrapings
1 tsp aniseed
3or 4 tsp of chilli powder,or more to taste
2 tsp thick tamarind juice, or more to taste
tsp tumeric powder
tomato chopped into tiny pieces
salt to taste
2 – 3 tbs oil or more


Grind the coconut scrapings and aniseed to a fine paste. Remove the paste, add in the chilli powder,tumeric powder, thick tamarind paste, salt, and the chopped tiny pieces of tomatoes and mix well to form a paste.
Clean and wipe the fish slices. Apply the masala all over the fish, so that the masala is well evenly coated through out. Keep them aside for an hour or so.
Put a non stick pan on fire. ( It's important , so that we get neat finished fish slices )
Add the oil , then add the fish slices on the pan and cook on slow fire. Let it brown nicely before turning on the other side. This not a deep fried fish, but we have to use oil a little bit more for the masala and the fish to be cooked..So add oil accordingly

Note: After cooking ,you can put the fish pieces on a hot tosai kal to get a very dark brown finish, without burning the masala.
This spicy masala fish will be very tasty to eat with steaming rice.

(Cool) Stuffed Chappathi Pizza (Kids version)

Had chappathis for dinner last night. Both my kids like Chappathis and the curry I had for us didn't suit to their spicy level! Plus I thought of making something different for a change for them to eat. And then there went my instant idea and what I did is given here... Big smile

What you need: Chappthis (4), Grated Cheese (any kind - I used cheddar and mozerella combined), Few chicken Bologna slices - 2, Pizza sauce and a Toaster oven.

What did I do: I placed 2 chappathis side by side and sprinkled cheese on top of it and warmed it in the oven first for few mins. When the cheese started to melt a bit, I added the pizza sauce on the top and then placed the chicken slices then again sprinkled some more cheese and placed another chappathi on top of them and placed it in the oven for another few mins.

We got couple of nice and warm stuffed chappathi pizzas and kids loved and ate it. I served steamed baby Carrots on the side. As my daughter really liked the way I set it up, and at the first bite she called it Cool! Hence we named it Cool Stuffed Chappathi pizza!! Smile
