Sago Fritters/ Javvarisi Vadam

Sago vadam is the easiest and simplest fryums that can be made in a jiffy.  I have seen my mannima(mom’s mom) making this vadam. It was there in my grandmom’s place and I ate this for the first time when I was too young. Later my amma and paati(dad’s mom) started making this at home. This time my mom made and sent me a couple of photos. After seeing the snaps, I got tempted and made it the very next day. Thank you amma for the recipe <3.

 INGREDIENTS

Sago – 1 cup

Water – As required

Salt – To taste

Green chilli paste / Red chilli powder – As required

  • Wash and soak the sago in water for 6 -8 hours. I used big size sago. Depending on the size of the sago, soaking time vary. The water should be well above the sago level.
  • Meanwhile grind green chillies into a paste with water.
  • Add green chilli paste, asafoetida, salt into the sago and mix well. Pressure cook it for 11 whistles.You can also add lemon juice at this stage but I don’t like to add it.
  • The sago will be in kheer consistency and will look transparent.
  • Allow it to cool. Spread a plastic sheet or cotton cloth. Pour half a ladle of sago and make it to a small disc.

  • It should neither be too thick nor too thin. Dry it in hot sun. If you are in flat, dry it in a place where you get the heat or under the fan.
  • If it gets dried, you will be able to peel it off. Dry it until it get the glassy texture.
  • To fry the fryums heat the oil and immerse the vadam well. Fry until they turn light brown.

Note:

Add salt carefully. If you taste, it should be mild. So that when you fry, the salt will be in right amount.

To make Tomato Sago fryums, blanch the tomatoes, grind and strain it. Mix the paste with the sago mixture. Add red chilli powder into it.

To make Onion Sago Fryums,  grind the onion and mix it with  the sago mixture.

While frying, the oil should be in right temperature. else the vadam will turn brown.

Grapes Popsicle

Popsicles are new to me and I heard it from one of my friends who made wheat milk kulfi. Later when I went to the Supermarket, I saw this popsicle mould and immediately grabbed one for me. First, I made banana popsicle with the ripened bananas and milk. Almost it came out good but I was not totally satisfied. Then we bought black grapes and I wished to made popsicles with that. Popsicles are very easy to make and there are thousands of popsicles that can be made according to your creativity. Grapes popsicle is very tasty and these are best to beat the heat.  People always prefer to eat ice creams but they increase the body temperature. Popsicles will help you really in Summer.

INGREDIENTS

Grapes – 1 cup

Sugar – 1 tbsp

Water – 1/4 cup

  • Add a cup of grapes, sugar, water in the juicer and grind. If you are using the mixie, then strain it to remove the debris.
  • Fill 3/4 th of the popsicle and close it with the lid.
  • If your popsicle mould doesn’t have lid, then cover it with the cling wrap and insert the ice-cream stick.
  • Freeze it for 6-8 hours.
  • Then show the mould in running tap water to thaw it. This will help in removing the popsicle easily.
  • Have it in summer and I bet your kids will love it. The best way to make your kids to eat fruits.
