Whenever we fall it and feel very tired, there are some custom comforting foods. We realy feel like being under mom’s cuddle, if we have such foods. I am not feeling well the paste two days and living on rasam rice. I am not healthy enough to make a proper side dish for rasam. If I think of a simple side dish, only pottukadalai thogaiyal or porikadalai thuvayal comes to mind. It is simple and tasty. It really brings back my childhood memoirs. Also post-pregnncy care I received from my mom’s home.

When I was young, my mom and athai used to make two common thogaiyals when we went sick. One is siruparuppu thogaiyal. Another one is porikadala thogaiyal. They used ammi to powder and make them. Feeling nostalgic and having a spoon of rasam rice with thogaiyal. What more ?
