    re: Medical Notes - மருத்துவ குறிப்புகள்

    Paarikka Pitla (Paavakkai Pitla)

    NGREDIENTS
    Parikka (Karela)………………………………………………………………………….. 4
    Tamarind …………………………………………………………….... Size of a Lime
    Curry Leaves ……………………………………………………………………………. A handful.
    Boiled Toor Dal………………………………………………………………………………A cup.
    Jaggery…………………………………………………………………………….A small piece.
    Turmeric Powder……………………………………………………………. Half Teaspoon
    Salt to Taste.

    FOR THE MASALA
    Toor Dal………………………………………………1 Heaped Teaspoon
    Urad Dal………………………………………………1 Heaped Teaspoon
    Bengal Gram Dal…………………………………1 heaped Teaspoon
    Asafoetida …………………A small piece(Or 1 Teaspoon of the powder).
    Red Dry chillies………………………5 or 6 according to taste.
    Grated Coconut…………………………………From one coconut.

    METHOD

    Take a little coconut oil (for that authentic taste. If you can manage without the authentic taste, you can use gingelly oil instead. But for Heaven’s sake don’t use Sunflower / Corn / Olive oil. You’ll kill the taste). Fry the three dals , the asafoetida and the red chillies. The red chillies should be broken and fried along with the dal on low flame. When they turn light brown add half the grated coconut and sauté for a few minutes. Now grind this into a fine paste and keep aside.
    Wash and cut the Bitter Gourd into small pieces. Those who wish to drive away the bitterness, can soak the cut pieces in salted water for half an hour, rinse in fresh water and use. But by doing this, you’ll be casting out the medicinal property of the vegetable…prevention and cure of diabetes. We have jaggery as one of the ingredients, so you can go ahead and have the Bitter / sweet karela with all it’s inherent goodness !!
    Boil the vegetable pieces in the tamarind extract with salt and turmeric powder. When the vegetables are done, add jaggery and boil for two more minutes and mix the boiled dal. The raw smell of tamarind should not be there.
    Now add the ground masala paste and boil for a few minutes. The consistency should be that of sambar. Remove the dish from fire and keep aside.

    Take a kadai and add a table spoon of coconut oil. Add half a teaspoon of mustard seeds. After it splutters, add a teaspoon of white urad dal. As it changes colour, add the curry leaves and rest of the grated coconut and fry on low flame till the grated coconut turns brown exuding a fantastic aroma. Mix quickly with the prepared dish and stir well. And Lo !! Your Pitla is ready.

    How to prepare Mint Pulao

    Prep time - under 15 mins
    Cook time -under -30 mins
    Serves -1- 2

    Ingredients needed

    Basmati rice or raw rice - 1 cup
    Onion - 2
    Green chilli - 2
    Ginger - 1 inch piece
    Mint leaves - 1 medium sized bunch or 1 cup tightly packed
    Fresh lemon juice -1 tbsp or juice of half a small lemon
    Fresh peas - fistful (optional)

    For the seasoning

    Oil - 2 tbsp
    Cardamom -1
    Cinnamon - 1 inch piece
    Cloves - 2

    Preparation

    Wash mint leaves and grind it to a fine paste along with half an onion, 1-2 green chilli and a small piece of ginger adding very less water.

    Soak basmati rice for 20 minutes, drain and keep it aside.

    Method

    Heat oil in a pan, add the ingredients mentioned under seasoning, saute for a few seconds, then add thinly sliced onions and saute till onions turn pink.


    Add the ground paste and saute till the raw flavor of the mint paste goes. If you have fresh peas with you, then you can add a handful of fresh peas now.


    Add drained rice, salt needed (for 1 cup rice it is approximately 2 tsp flat salt), juice of half a lemon, and 1 3/4 cup of water.Transfer it to another container (in case if you have done it in kadai)and pressure cook for 3 whistles and switch off.


    In case if you are doing it directly in the pressure cooker/ pan as shown above, pressure cook for 1 whistle and simmer for another 5-6 minutes. Switch off and open the cooker once the pressure subsides.

    Variations - You can add 1 small potato (peeled and chopped) along with peas (step -2) if you like.

    You can also cook rice separately and mint separately and mix both together.In this case, you cook rice as you normally do.
