Pinch of salt
Coconut Oil to deep fry
Grind jackfruit bulbs, grated coconut and jaggery together adding little water. Add salt and mix well. Add sooji little by little and mix. If you add all of sooji at once, there might be lumps. And also the mixture might get very dry and hard. Make a mixture of thick consistency so you can make small balls.

Monsoon Magic Recipe#8- Janavro ani Keerla Ghashi

In one of my previous monsoon recipes I told u that soon I will be posting a recipe with fresh bamboo shoot cubes. So here is the recipe: Janavro ani (ani here means and)keerla ghashi Janavro is known as avre in kannada and hyacinth beans in English. This beans goes very well with keerlu. The keerlu’s are cut into disks or long pieces and stored in bharni/or glass bottles or any big bottle that u have. My mom usually cuts the keerlu and makes 4 separate batches, 1 is the keerlu disks for preserving, 2nd Keerla Neeli tender bamboo chops, 3rd is the tender bamboo tops, and 4th is cubes which is used just in 3 days. This dish is made with fresh bamboo shoots.

I’ve told u how to use it yet I am writing it again. To clean the bamboo shoots, add water until it is slightly above the shoots. The next day throw the water and add fresh water. It can be used on 3rd day after discarding the water and giving it a rinse. This is supposed to remove the bitterness of bamboo shoots 

Now to make the Ghashi her…

Monsoon Magic Recipe #7- Maddi Humman

I am so happy that I can post so many monsoon recipes here . I we back home grew up eating all such monsoon amchi dishes. But these days the young generation have almost forgotten such dishes. The reason to start this Monsoon Magic Recipe is to keep the recipes fresh in our mind or to give the recipes to all who never know such recipes or even to the ones who forgot about this!!!!

Maddi (a Konkani word) also known as Colocassia thick root is one of the monsoon vegetable available in market. While using this one must be very careful, sometimes it can cause itching while cutting it, So apply oil before cutting, still if it happenes so then apply tamarind water on the hands. Maddi is added to accompany legumes (such as ghashi or coconuit based dishes just like suran) or Humman is made out of this. Humman is a thick porridge kind,tempered with garlic, and dish is white in color, just because I had kept beetroot along with this in cooker it has got pinkish color.
Here is the Humman recipe: Madd…
