Journal Your Ramadan - Day 3


The prompt for today is “Food”. Well, well, well :-). Food is definitely on the agenda during Ramadan, the lack of it during the day and delicacies during the evening.

This is a photo of today’s meal – 'Irachi puttu'. Literally translated from Malayalam, it means ‘Meat steamed funnel rice cakes’. That is quite a ridiculous name for such a simple dish. This is a dish that’s mostly seen in homes in North Malabar.

Usually ‘Puttu’ or the ‘Steamed funnel rice cakes’ have coconut between the various layers, but here, it’s a masala made of meat. Any meat can be used, even tiny prawns go well. I tried to balance it out with a mixed veg korma.

    1. He he...I understand. The problem is that most of them are quite unhealthy, with 90% of them requiring deep frying :-(. I'm trying to shallow fry/bake my samosas and cutlets, though it does get a little difficult with spring rolls and the rest.
