Ulunthu sadham

Ulunthu sadham

Good morning 😀

Hope you all are having a good day. Yesterday night I thought of making ulunthu sadham as dinner. I am a native of nagercoil. I am not sure of other districts but there I have seen that when girls attain their puberty relatives make this ulunthu sadham along with egg aviyal and mutton gravy. Ulunthu i.e urid Dal is very good for strong bones development. I prefer to use black urid Dal. Always the original version will be better than polished one right???

Girls get weak during their periods and having dishes made of ulunthu will give them strength and help them get relief from stomach aches.

Also give this food to pregnant ladies this help brain and bones development for the fetus.

Try to include urid in your kids regular diet which provides all nutrients and strengthen the bones.

Now coming back to the recipe, try this out and give feedbacks and comments how it came for you…

Hello friends✋✋,, I am a very usual home maker. Actually was a very normal cook 🙆who tried very bad recipes. But after my marriage when I was forced that I have to cook and no other go because me and my hubby were alone abroad I started taking cooking serious. I started out with lot of flop shows and my seriousness increased and I got explore with more proper and healthy cooking after my son born👨‍👩‍👧. I started being so conscious of his health and food habit. Still day I make sure he is always healthy. Healthy doesn't mean chubby and bubbly. May be chubby and bubbly looks to be cute but that is not only the concern. Hope all will enjoy my blogging. Will come out with healthy and homely recipes. This will surely be a support for ladies like 🍴.
