BLACK NIGHT SHADE LEAVES (MANATHAKKALI KEERAI) THANNI SAARU (SOUP)


BLACK NIGHT SHADE LEAVES (MANATHAKKALI KEERAI) THANNI SAARU (SOUP)

Manathakkali keerai(Black night shade leaves)is one of the very good medicinal herb which is very good in curing ulcers, both stomach and mouth ulcers. You can even chew the leaf as raw daily in the morning to relieve from mouth ulcers.

This thanni saru(soup) is really a tasty yummy soup made using mnathakkaali leaves along with coconut milk and cumin seeds. Youcan even make simple kootu with this leaves, but I would say, this thanni saru is the best recipe to prepare with manathakkali leaves, That much I love this yummy thanni saru.
BLACK NIGHT SHADE LEAVES (MANATHAKKALI KEERAI) THANNI SAARU (SOUP)


We can even drink this thanni saru as such or mix with hot rice and relish. As we have added coconut milk and cumin with this leaves, this thanni saru will act as a good coolant too.

My amma used to eat few leaves as raw whenever she have mouth ulcers. And mostly makes thanni saru only with this leaves atleast monthly once, as we had a lot of manathakkali plant in our backyards. She even prepare the vatral with the manathakkali kai. With these vatrals we can make yummy vatha kuzhambu.

Navarathri is one of the very popular festivals all over india. The way of celebration may vary from state to state, but commonly it is celebrated for nine days and we worship the three main goddesses saraswathi, Lakshmi and Parvathi(Shakthi).
The main thing for this festival is Golu. We keep the goddess statues and dolls in the golu and do pooja regularly for those nine days.

COCONUT RICE(THENGAI SATHAM)
SOAKING TIME: - | PREPARATION TIME: 5 MINS | COOKING TIME: 5 MIN

COCONUT RICE / THENGAAI SATHAM RECIPE

AUTHOR: KUZHALIS SAMAIYALARAI
RECIPE TYPE: MAIN
CUISINE: SOUTH INDIAN
SERVES: 2 PERSONS

INGREDIENTS:
                                    1 cup cooked rice
                                    ½ cup grated coconut
                                    Salt to taste
                                    1 teaspoon coconut oil(optional)
                        To temper:
                                    1 tablespoon oil
                                    1 teaspoon mustard seeds
                                    1 red chillies
                                    1 green chilli
                                    1 tablespoon urad dhal
                                    1 ½ tablespoon channa dhal
                                    3 to 5 cashew nuts
                                    ½ teaspoon asafetida
                                    Few curry leaves
                                   
PREPARATION:
Cook the rice fluffy. Mix little oil and let it cool down completely.
Grate the coconut and keep it ready.
Slit the green chillies and break the red chillies and set aside.
Chop the cashew nuts into small pieces and set aside.

METHOD:
In a pan add oil and let it heat. Then add the mustard seeds, and wait till it splutters.
Then add  urad dhal and channa dhal and sauté. Add the green chillies, red chillies and curry leaves, saute well.
Then add cashews ,asafoetida and sauté for few seconds.
Then add the grated coconut and required salt sauté well for 1 minute. Just sauté till the coconut becomes hot; no need to stir till the moisture goes off.
Mix the prepared coconut mixture with the cooled rice and mix well.
Finally add a teaspoon of coconut oil and mix.
Serve hot!!!

NOTES:
  • Don’t cook the rice till mushy, it should be fluffy.
  • Adjust the spiciness by adding one more red chilli or green chilli.
  • I have added lot of dhal as I like them much, if you don’t like, you can reduce the amount of dhals.
  • If you have the rice immediately, the dhals will be so crunchy, so leave the rice for some time, and then serve. So the dhals will become soft in the mean time.
  • As we have used coconut, this rice will be good for short time, so refrigerate if, you prepare long time before and reheat while serving.
  • Adding coconut oil at the end will give very nice flavour to the rice.
