Blogging Marathon# 40: Week 4/ Day 1
Theme: Bookmarked recipes from BM# 39
Dish: Tamil Nadu Thali
Today we are starting the final week of blogging marathon# 40. After posting the unused posts from last month's mega marathon, this week's theme is still related to the mega marathon. I'm going to post the bookmarked recipes from my fellow marathoners for the next 3 days.
Mega marathon was sure mega in lots of different ways -- mega research, mega posts, mega yapping on Whatsapp and then mega bookmarked posts after the marathon itself. I had bookmarked a lot of dishes, which I'm sure I will not be able to get to if not for this theme. After seeing so many amazing thalis during the marathon, I'm kind of obsessed with the thali concept. So for the next 3 days, I decided to do 3 thalis with bookmarked recipes.
Finally this is what my Thali consisted of:
- Cabbage Poriyal
- Potato Podimas
- Mango Pachadi
- Tomato Rasam
- White Rice
- Yogurt (not shown in the picture)
Kootu: I used Sandhya's Chow-chow kootu recipe and since I didn't have chow-chow (chayote), I used bottle gourd/ sorakaya instead. The use of ground masala paste gives this dish a lot of flavor and it goes well with both rice and roti.
Tomato Rasam: Tamilians sure know how to make a mean rasam. So I just followed Sandhya's recipe for rasam and it sure was super tasty.
