Our lost tradition ..we grind and crush our signature three chutneys (accompanying dosai and idly) in ammikal... The process would take long and it was truly back breaking work but our kitchen brigade commis doing it with so much Patrience and passion ,un complainingly.after all ,we were doing it for our beloved patrons and guests. .. If u are looking to strengthen your wrist ,Just invest one sil batta or ammikal for entire family and pass it on to your next generation too ......backtotheroots #ammikal #silbatta #signaturechutney #upperdeckfoodhall

My ammikal says "Hello World" to my IG family with mint chutney . Took 1 month for me to gain confidence to show it to you all. I did lot of stuff offline☺️.

Marudhani is a wonderful medicinal herb, which is widely used by all women across India. In southern part of India the Marudhani leaves are ground to a fine paste in Ammi kal (now a days in a blender😇)and applied in Palm and as a cap in fingers and also in legs. It is exactly applied on the nerve endings in order to cool the nerves from becoming tense. The whole body gets cooled when Marudhani is applied in hands or legs. The Marudhani leaves contain antiseptic property which protects us from various un-known viral infections. Generally Marudhani is applied before wedding or any festival in order to reduce the stress caused due to the same (pre-wedding stress) and also to avoid catching infections before any occasion.
There is a saying "the darker is the stain in the brides hand the deeper will be the love between the couple " 😊😀. To get a dark stain add few drops of lemon juice to the Marudhani paste and apply. Moreover Marudhani gives a wonderful smell when you eat food with the stained hand ( Thayir saadham with Maavadu) whenever I apply Marudhani I feel so nostalgic, brings back all the childhood memories😊😊. #marudhani #mehandhistain #mehandhi #southindianbride #southindia #ammi #ammikal #southindiantradition #herbalplant #medicinalherbs #medicinalplants #kavithavinkaivannam #antiseptic #nature

Moong Dal Chillas with tangy Tomato chutney: These are Indian crepes with a twist. Coz they’re made of lentils and filled with paneer! ✨
Recipe: •Soak the moong dal for 3 to 4 hours.
•Grind it to a smooth paste.
• Add chilli powder,turmeric powder,cumin powder.coriander leaves ,ginger paste,salt,cut onions, coriander leaves. •Pour small dosas and drizzle with oil
•You can use a mixture of grated paneer, coriander leaves and onions with little chilli powder as stuffing for the chillas.
•Serve hot with onion tomato chutney.
P.S. I grinded the chutney in Ammi(Grinding stone) and it’s extra yumm! 😋

Cute ammi kallu ( grinding stone) clicked from Gokul tiles shop Salem. Thinking of buying it as my mom and MIL always says that masala and chutneys ground using ammikal has a special flavour😘😍. Totally agreed. It's a good exercise to our hands and hips as well. But Nowadays for our busy morning cooking, epdiyo samayal mudinja sari nu we all rely on Mixie without even thinking about special flavour or taste😑. Oru pakkam gunda Vera poitrukom 🤔😔. Both mom and Mil still uses ammikal for pounding spices for rasam, sambar and thogayal. Ok, How many of you still have and use ammikal at home ?😊. #gonebutneverforgotten #ammikal

#siokitchengadgets is all about tools & gadgets that I use in my kitchen. This is not a sponsored post and I am doing it #kozhupueduthufy😂 Just a thought… #kitchen is not just about food but also things that help to make😂 it all happen! (Incl 😁me?) Some old, some new, some antique, some useless😁 some really junk.. some expensive some worthless.. I have a few in each category😂 So...under this series you will see such #gadgets that i adore, treasure & respect.. brings so much memories….keeps connected to my roots😌

Starting with a very humble basic #mortarandpestle … which is indispensable in my kitchen, use it almost everyday… i somehow feel pounding or crushing any paste or powder using this stone mortar & pestle makes the dish more flavorful.. the best 100 rupees spent ✨ i guess! Got this during one short trip to #mahabalipuram with my sissy @traveltales13 once upon a time😀.had many many happy shopping experiences… only #ammikal & #aatukal is still pending under that 🙃shopping list! Of all kitchen tools..this is the one, I adore the most❤
I have tried marble, wood, polished stone for crushing.. they either slip or that garlic thrown back at you #newtonsthirdlawofmotion 😂
Will be updating my #pinterest board 👉"kitchen this and that" follow us if interested.

These beauties from @theindusvalley arrived yesterday and they'll soon join the gang in my kitchen! I love Kalpathram/soap stone cookware and already own one pot which I bought from Srirangam temple many years ago. When a similar Kuzhipaniyaram chatti popped on my feed, I was all awed and couldn't help locate the source and immediately checked out #indusvalley and in a few hours my order was already placed 😁 and I have a thing for Mortar and pestle and keep drooling at them when I find one. I have a granite #ammikal and #aatukkal built in my kitchen counter(I use a 33yr old kitchen) but unfortunately not suitable to use in today's cooking due to lack of knowledge and time. But I never miss handpounding a few spices in my tiny mortar and help bring out better flavours in my cooking. A few days back, the Pestle fell down and broke into two 😔 So, it was high time I bid adieu to that and welcomed a new one home 😊 Looking forward to curing them and making good use of them soon! Oh yes, almost forgot to mention the Wooden spoon and fork, they are made of neem wood and are for #mylittleladoo 😊 #mykitchengram #mykitchengadgets #soapstone #soapstonecookware #kalpathram #kalchatti #kuzhipaniyaram #traditionalcookware #mortarandpestle

Arachuvitta chicken curry, Authentic Coimbatore style chicken curry made by roasting the spices and grinding them using "ammikal" - kitchen hand grinder stone. Traditional way of preparing village style nattu kozhi kuzhambu.
The flavor, spice blend and taste it gives out when grinding manually can just not be compared.

Nothing gives more authentic taste than prepping for a dish the old school way like our ancestors did . How many of you still use the Ammi / silpatha to grind your masala paste for cooking ? #ammikallu #ammikal #groundmasala #stonegroundrecipes #stonegroundmasalapaste #oldschoolcooking #oldschoolcookingstyle #oldschoolcookingstyleforlife #oldisgold #indiankitchen #indiankitchenstories #homekitchen #indianhomekitchen

Comfort food - red rice, paruppu thogaiyal (handground), manathakkali vathakuzhambu, potato kari, sutta appalam and curd (not in pic). Put my ammi kal to use for the first time. It took me around 20min to grind the thogaiyal. In the first 5 min, nothing was happening, dals weren't relenting and were standing proudly. I told myself, "I'm not going to transfer to a mixie jar, even if it takes me the whole afternoon". It was messy and required more work to gather everything in the centre and keep moving the heavy stone. Finally, it started to break down and with frequent sprinkling of water, the thogaiyal was taking shape. 20 min and it was done, phew!!! When I tasted it with rice and ghee, the effort was all worth it. It took me back to my childhood when I used to relish my grandmother's version. I have made the same recipe by grinding in mixie so many times but never got the taste of my grandmother's. Today, I got it and am so thrilled.

Also I'm so grateful to Herbert Johnson who invented the mixer grinder. How much time and effort his invention has saved for us!! 😊

Essential Traditions

Fresh ground masalas are always a great plus to any dish.
For example, a simple ingredient such a black pepper tastes much better when it is ground fresh.

Today most households buy the basic masala powders such as turmeric powder, chilli powder and coriander powder. But for every meal these masalas would be ground with fresh ingredients using an ammikal. The flavor and aroma of the gravy or sambar is markedly different.

With more and more households opting for healthier alternatives, be at organic foods, vegan foods etc, store bought, pre ground masalas with numerous preservatives and chemical additives are a scare. Fresh ground masalas are a must in health conscious families.... Shop for traditional cookware at our online store:

or drop in to one of our stores in Chennai.

"If you've ever been in Africa or wherever, let me know " 👉🏽This part was cut from my 1:01 video ✂️📽🎞😂Thanks Insta! 🙈Hope your Friday is going as planned 👌🏽😉...
Anyhow, HAVE YOU EVER SEEN THIS?????
👀🔎🤓😲🙃 it's a stone ( but not just ANY stone 💎😌😍) 👉🏽It used to be ( or still is ) among the "Must-Have" cooking utensils in African cuisine. It is used for grinding grains, spices, veggies...You name it ( It also strengthens your arms 💪💪🏿💪🏻😂😉if you have enough stamina lool) Grinding stones have been used by humans since the African middle Stone Age & for food processing for about 28,000 years ( No, you weren't born yet either ..🤔💭😂😉) The small stone is usually held by hand 🤚🏽 & the bigger & flatter stone is placed on the ground/ a bench/ a table. Grain is crushed by the backward & forward movement of the small stone on the flatter stone. I think that it is quite unfortunate that such prehistoric tools are on the verge of becoming "obsolete"... especially because of the introduction of grinding machines ( Blenders & the likes), furthermore, WHO still uses these? 🙋🏾 ( It is time ⏰ consuming, I reckon & No, it may not look "cute" 😜in a kitchen) My great-great grandmother used it & so did all the other women preceding me. A lot of people were surprised to see me purchasing, carrying or traveling with these stones but hey, they didn't know what they were missing out on ( Let me convince myself of that .. the BEST condiments & sauces are made with it💖😉🤣🙈) On my stones, there are a few condiments that are so hard to find in the Western world. Among which 👉🏽Djansan, Pèbè ( not Sèsè.. I made a mistake on the video ) , Mbõngò & Hōrmi ( Yes, it's a tree🌳bark filled with flavours)
I'll be incorporating a few Cameroonian recipes featuring these goodies someday soon. In the mean time, enjoy the view (or not) & let me know whether or not you've seen or used this before in the comments section below. Love & Blessings!🌬💖💛❤️💚💙💜🙏🏽✨

Here comes the most loved combo 🔸Varutharacha Meen Curry and Beetroot ‪Thoran. 
Swipe to see the beauties 😜
..
Anyhow don’t forget to see the age old #ammikal which I’ve used as backdrop. My great-great grandmother used it followed by all women in the family preceding me. Should I say more reason for the yummiest curry.?.
