DAALI THOY AND SOREKAI BOLU KODHEL FROM MANGALORE

After those two delicious and creamy Swiss dishes today I am here with typical South Indian recipes from one of the most beautiful place in South India Yes Mangalore. I like Mangalorean cuisine because it is almost like our Andhra cuisine, tangy spicy but only difference between these two cuisines is, in Mangalorean cuisine they use coconut oil for seasoning in Andhra cuisine we use ground nut or sun flower oil and in Andhra cuisine we use a very less coconut. Coming to the recipe here I am with simple Mangalore thali which include s a simple Dali thoy simple dal with coconut oil seasoning and Bolu Huli or Bolu Kodhel which is plain spicy vegetable curry/soup with Vaighanache upkari brinjal stir fried with spicy curry powder, which is almost like our Vankaya podi kura and we enjoyed the thali. And here I go with the recipes………….

4. Serve hot with rice and ghee.

Thank you for a brief explanation on the differences in Andhra and Mangalore cuisine. There are so many in India. It would be nice to know what exactly makes each unique as to flavors and different ingredients more then the different names for things.

I like your other blog as well. The Baha'i faith is a very lovely one. I still have the small prayer book I was given and find the recitations inspiring.
