pea eggplant recipe (Dosa)/thuthuvalai dosai
Thuthuvalai keerai is a medicinal herb good for cough,asthma ,cold !a good natural remedy and to list has many medicinal properties…
My mom told me once that my paati(grand mother) used to make rasam out of this pea eggplant /thuthuvalai but I never had a chance to have it.After many years I learnt this traditional rasam recipe from one of my lovely neighbor friend and got it done!!from time to time I make it “realizing” its natural goodness . Iam not posting pea eggplant rasam /thuthuvalai rasam recipe now!!the idea of making pea eggplant/thuthuvalai dosa recipe came from one of my favorite Revathi Shanmugam’s cook book!Her cooking method’s “always has and have been” a mental stimulation. It’s little tricky job cleaning the herb,should be very careful when cleaning because not only the stems have thorns it is there even in leaves.I prefer to clean it with help of scissors holding the thorn-less stem area with one hand.Its not like fermenting normal idli dosa batter(it’s totally different)it will have its own characteristic!!but can be enjoyed with any spicy chutney’s of your choice,I prefer spicy coconut chutney the best..
