BM #116 Day 7 - 

Today's thali is an assembled one with no pattern. My husband and I love pongal of all varieties but the kids have different taste buds. I made this meal when schools were in session (so long ago) and so pongal - palakura pulusu were basically my lunch.

I made Aloo Muddha Koora for the kids to have an option for their next meal. 

Featured here are Little Millet Pongal, Rice, Palakura Pulusu, Raw Plum Chutney, Aloo Muddha Koora and yogurt.

Ingredients - 

Raw Plum pitted and finely chopped - 1 1/2 cups
Mirchi powder 1 tsp (or as per taste)
Mustard powder 1 tsp (or as per taste)
Salt 1 tsp  (or as per taste)
Fenugreek powder (roasted methi powder) 1/8 tsp  (or as per taste)
Turmeric 1/2 tsp
Oil 1 Tbsp
Asafotida (Hing) 1/8 tsp

Method Of Preparation -

Wash and dry the Raw Plums. Remove the center seed and chop each of the plums into small pieces.

Add salt and turmeric and mix it well. Leave it aside for a few minutes.

Add mustard powder, mirchi powder, methi powder, oil and asafoetida and mix well.

Serve this pickle after an hour or so with steaming hot rice and ghee for a satisfying meal.

  2. That's a wonderfully simple meal and looks inviting. Never tried my hands on raw plums, sounds so tangy! With kids having different taste, we always end up making another one right!

  3. Raw plum chutney sounds so delicious , and what a simple one ! I am very fond of pongal but that I enjoy in Chennai only . Everytime I make I feel something missing , may be its the South touch :)) The thali looks excellent and I wouldn’t mind having from it .

  5. Everything on that plate looks delicious to me. I am a fan of pongali and greens. :) Plums are my favorite fruits but I have never thought of using the raw ones in the chutney. That is such a neat idea.

  7. Everyday South Indian food is the best kind, it’s simple but has so many varieties too. The chutney sounds good, I haven’t seen raw plums before, will keep an eye out for them the next time I do shopping.

  9. Raw plum chutney looks so different and new dish to me. Love the entire thali and it looks so delicious.

  11. Raw plums chutney is so interesting and I am sure it is full of flavors. And most of the days my meals don't have a pattern as well and with the kiddo it's not that easy. It's one inviting meal plate for sure.
