Avapettina Aritikaya Kura -Green Plantain Curry With Mustard Falvor And A Thali

Today Iam again here with a reagional thali from Andhra Pradesh. I have choosen some recipes fro Visakhapatnam (vizag) and Godavari districts. This reagion is in the North west part of Andhra Pradesh. This reagion is costal area with Godvari river delta. Godavari delta reagion is known as rice bowl of Andhra predesh with lash paddy fields and rich coconut groves. Visakhapatnam is a costal port city. In this reagion cuisine is influened by oriya cuisine. Like Kerala coconut is used in cooking because if it's rich coconut groves. This cuisine is a fusion of oriya and andhra cuisines.

Here in this thali I tried to explore the flavors of this reagion. In curries I made Avapettina Aritikaya kura. In this curry they give a flavor of mustard and ginger to fresh green plantain. This is side dish for rice with dal and rasam. But my choice is mix this curry with rice and dash of ghee..:) 

And the second curry is Dondakaya Kobbarikaram kura (Ivy gourd curry with coconut) is flavourd with coconut. This is also a perfect side dish for Rice, dal and rasam.
For this thali I made Paramannam as a sweet. This is a sweet rice Pudding made with rice, milk and jaggery, grated coconut

Avapettina Pulihora is a famous rice dish from this reagion. Pulihora is rice dish, Rice  mixed with sour sauce made with Tamarind or lemon. Here in this thali I made with lemon with a twist of Mustard, ginger and green chilli paste. This recipe I learnt from one of my friends mother they are from Vizag. Thanks for the recipe Kamala Aunty.
