Thans for the enquiry. kaLimaN uruNdai will help mooLai grow. But aRivu will not grow, only mudi will grow. May be my friend Dr.vEthALa moorthi can answer your question.
* From: Velaiyaththavan (@ cache1.infoave.net) on: Thu Sep 21 12:36:37 EDT 2000
Instead of sodium cholride, the recent chemical called vector chloride can be added for taste. If you are not very particular about the direction which you should face while eating, you may try scalar chloride.
Also, instead of ghee, castor oil can be used. It helps "clearing" the digestive tract which may be blocked because of the excessive intake of kaLimaN uruNdai. It is probable that a US company will patent this and claim the recipe is indigenious. Please donot restrain yourslef from informing Dr.Mashelkar about it if you find an infringement of such sort.

does anybody know how to make raththa soup ? thx.
* From: vetti (@ ts006d34.har-ct.concentric.net) on: Mon Sep 25 00:02:05 EDT 2000
Velaiyaththavan, Thanks for that extra tip about about castor oil. It will also be very helpful to the bulimics who like to purge somehow.
Recipe for Halaal raththa soup:
Crush 5 pounds of plump-as-rambha tomatoes and pour it in a saucepot. The seeds can be removed to make a smooth soup. Leave the seeds to get a crushed bones texture. Add 1 litre of spoiled milk and 1 pound of mouldy parmesan cheese.
Place the saucepot on the stove and bring the liquid to a boil. Stick your finger in to check the temperature. If you are not sure stick another finger. When you have made sure it is boiling dice up a pound of black soggy onions and add to the liquid.
If you wish you can dice up and add any leftover stale and rotten vegetables to the liquid. I personally would prefer adding those vegetables because it adds to the nutritional value of the soup.
Let simmer for 30 minutes.
Now comes the best part, adding the raththam. You can add any raththam you want. It is left to your imagination. But since this is a Halaal recipe you have to pray to your favorite God and add 2 bottles of Shingar Santhu Pottu. Then add salt and pepper to taste. Stir well and let it simmer for another 30 minutes.
While the soup is simmering, boil a few whole ears of corn. Take some really stinky karuvaadu and fry it in oil to bring out the aroma. Remove the saucepot off of the stove and pour it into very large serving bowls. Let a whole corn float on the each bowl of soup. Then top the surface of the soup with the stinky karuvaadu. If corn is not available you can use rat meat. If karuvaadu is not available you can use karappaaan from under your kitchen counter.
This soup is very healthy, very inexpensive to make, very flavorsome and colorful. Being Halaal makes it even better.

Recipe for Maayaandi Vilas Digri Kaappi:
First we have prepare the water used to make our Digri kAppi.
Fill up a plastic bucket with cold tap water. Use this water to mop your kitchen floor at night before you go to bed. Do NOT sweep the floor before mopping it.
Rinse the mop in the bucket of water and squeeze the excess water back into the bucket. Be careful not to waste even a drop of water. After you have finished mopping, cover the bucket of water with a plate and refrigerate it. If you forget to refrigerate, then the water will ferment overnight.
adhAvathu buckettil irukkum thaNNi puLiththu nurai thatti vidum. sila pErukku puLiththa kAppi pidikkum. avargaL puLikka viaththu kAppi pOttu kudikkalAm.
Next day in the morning boil the prepared water in a steel pot. Depending on the color and consistency of the prepared warer the boiling point may vary. Since the tempearture (in degrees of course) varies every day depending on the water this is called "Digri kAppi" (now you know how it got its name).
Use the boiled water and prepare kAppi with your favorite kAppi podi and sugar. Do not use milk because the moment you add milk to this coffee the milk will split. But if you like it that way you can add milk. This is called "thirinja Digri kAppi".
This makes a a very strong, tasty, thick (even without milk), aromatic (oh yeah) kAppi.
- Use an iron bucket while mopping, this adds irumbu chaththu to your kAppi. This will make you strong as irumbu.
- Use a piththaLai bucket and the kAppi will add polivu to your mEni.
- Reuse the bucket of water for one full week every night and then make kAppi and offer it to your guests, this kAppi will be so strong and tasty your guests will praise you like hell.
- If you make this kAppi in the morning and keep it out in the sun all day and drink it at night, it will act as an aphrodisiac....hubba hubba.

maayaandi - that was great pa. oru chinna tip. For extra "flavour" we can add some amount of the water prepared for "vaasal theLikkirathu" - you know what it has - some saththulla substance like...yeah.
you can add kolap podi too. after all, it will not make it worse.

Claire, here is the recipe for 'yAnai thuthikkai chips'. First of all you need to get hold of an elephant (you may confirm this with your hubby, 'yAnai' is 'elephant' in English). Most importantly, the elephant needs to have a trunk (check this out too). Once you have managed to do this (which is no mean task), kick yourself for getting the idea of 'yAnai thuthikkai chips'.
