Preparation of South Indian Special Meals 

You can always chop the vegetables previous day. You can even make batter for vadai and prepare dessert previous day depending on your choice. I prepared this elaborate menu on the same day without any prior preparation. I took me around 3 hours for preparing everything from scratch.

  • Soak Urad dal for vadai and soak sago for payasam in hot water
  • Pressure cook the potatoes in one stove and boiled peas in induction stove.
  • Wash and chop the manathakali keerai and keep it ready.
  • Once potatoes are cooked, cook the dal in same pressure cooker.
  • Peel the potatoes and make the potatoes fry.
  • In another pan you can start making mushroom matar masala.
  • While cooking is going on I will cut the vegetables and onions in parallel.
  • Once the dal is cooked, you can start preparing keerai kottu and saute the veggies for sambar.
  • Temper little dal with ghee and take water for making rasam
  • I used the same dal for making keerai kottu
  • Pressure cook the sambar and make beetroot poriyal in another stove.
  • When one stove is free, boil the rice and take in hot pack.
  • Finally prepare the tomato rice and payasam.
  • Fry the vada just before serving
  • You can include Vatha kuzhambu instead of mor kuzhambu.
  • You can include veg biryani or pulao instead of tomato rice.
  • Check out other side dishes and desserts recipes.
