Ancient Tamilnadu Recipes

Some of the ancient recipes of Tamilnadu are Adhirasam, Ragi Dosai, Kambu Dosai, Millet[siruthaniya vagaigal] recipes etc., in ancient days people used bullock cart to travel that required several weeks. They had to keep the food for several days for travel. Adhirasam is one such kind of food. Its prepared only three ingredients rice, jaggery and Cardamom. But the preparation requires lot of time and the process is quite complicate. We can keep this food for several days.

Those days the calories were burnt and balanced the fat in the body by preparing the recipe itself such as grinding the rice, beating the Ragi, whipping the curd etc. When you eat ancient food make sure that you prepare it manually.
