Here is one more dish made out of this leaf.Taikile Ambado: Ambado in Konkani is a fried item. This is our family favourite leaf and dish too.
Here is what we need:
Taikilo washed and chopped finely-2 cups
Rice – 1 cup
2 handful of Toor dal (soak rice and toor dal for 4 hrs)
20 Kashmiri red chilies
Salt to taste
Coconut oil for frying(u can use oil of ur choice I always prefer coconut oil for frying).
Grind soaked rice, dal and red chilies into a smooth paste. Add as less water. Make a thick paste.
Now mix salt and the ground paste with chopped taikilo. Mix evenly.
Make small balls and flatten it. Keep all the ambado ready for frying.
Heat oil and fry the ambado’s till crisp.
Taikile Ambado is ready to serve.
Taste fantastic with Rice and dal or Rasam.
Till Later Then,

How are all ya doing??? M sure most of them are enjoying the rains…. And some like me even complaint about the rains (that doesn’t mean I don’t like rains I love them but not here ..in this place its worst).
Yesterday my Lil Angel M completed 6 months and this was a good occasion to prepare a sweet. I did not want to prepare regular kheer so I added a Monsoon Fruit into it and gave a new twist to the kheer.
So here is the recipe
Pear – 1 (remove the skin and seed and chop them)
Sugar – ½ cup adjust according to taste
Rawa – ½ cup
Milk -1 n ½ cup
Almonds and cashews – roasted
Ghee – 1 tbsp
Saffron strands few
Heat a tsp milk and dissolve saffron strands in it and keep aside.
First microwave the pear with 1 tbsp sugar for 3 minutes (If u do not have a microwave then sauté the pear in same way for 5 minutes and keep aside.
Now in a deep bottom pan add 1 tbsp ghee and roast the rawa until light golden color(by doing this rawa does not stick to each other) this takes hardly 2-3 minutes.
Now add milk 1 cup milk and cook the rawa for 5-10 minutes. When the rawa is cooking add the remaining milk along with saffron mixture and sugar and stir well.
Boil for 5-10 minutes well in low flame and keep stirring as the kheer has chances of sticking in the bottom of the pan.
Now add the pear pieces and boil for 5 more minutes and switch the flame off.
Now add cardamom powder,almonds, and cashew nuts. Serve hot or cold according to ur choice.
Isnt it Easy and new???
With this recipe Its time to end todays post
