Have patience, have patience
Don’t be in such a hurry
If you get impatient
You only start to worry
God is patient to you
Think of all the times
When others have to wait for you
Hello, just a second , don’t get confused whether you have landed in a wrong blog. It is me relaxing on my sofa, remembering the good old song of my school days. This is the song I sing to myself whenever I am waiting especially at the crowded bus stops in Chennai.
Just like this song, I have special songs for every occasions. My mom hums sweet telugu tunes while she cooks. Those are great tunes which none would have ever heard except her stove and vessels.
Hey that gives me an idea!! Why don’t we play a meme game with this ? At the latest , ‘partha mudhal naalai’ from ‘Vettaiyaadu Vilaiyaadu’ is the hit in our kitchen kacheri. Now you tell me the most frequent song/tune/ slogam you hum/recite while you cook. I tag my favourite bloggers Indira , Menutoday , Vee , My Dhaba, and Saffron Hut.
Coming back to food, I wanted to enter My dhaba’s VCC Q3 2006. But all the snacks and sweets are all coming to a grand closure.Yet, I managed to grab the last few murukkus for a photo session. Here is the recipe for arisi murukku
Arisi murukku- a deep fried snack made with rice flour

Fried gram dall / udaitha kadalai/- 1/2 cup
Red chilli- 4 Nos
Asfoestida- 3 pinches
Curry leaves- 7/8
Sesame seeds- 1 tbsp
Cumin seeds- 1/2 tbsp
Butter /heated oil – 1 tbsp
Salt – to taste
Oil -to fry
Powder the fried gram dall and the chillies in the blender. Mix the flours ,cumin seeds, asfoetida, sesame seeds ,butter / oil , salt with water.Load the dough into a murukku press. Make long strips on a greased plastic sheet/ ziploc bag simultaneously coiling them into spirals.Deep fry in oil on both sides.
Murukku press – Much easier than the old styled press.
