Happy Independence Day

For this August monthโ€™s ICC- Indian Cooking ChallengeSrivalli chose Uluthan
Kali, an authentic recipe of Tamil
Nadu shared by Padma. I never heard and tried this recipe. Srivalli suggested Padma post
for reference. Through this link, I got a general idea about this recipe.
Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe with us. But for more detail I go with Vimithaa recipes also.

In this recipe, We first make Ulundhu Podi through dry roast Urad dal and rice together and
gind it for fine flour with green cardamom powder and then we prepare Ulundhu Kali or Urad Dal Kali with ghee and jaggery syrup,  Because
Urad dal is so healthy, this sweet is made and given to young girls when they
attain puberty. In Andhra we have the tradition of making Urad dal ladoos and
feed the girls for 15 days to give good health and strength to bones. Ulundhu
is rich in calcium and jaggery is rich iron and gingelly oil gives good strength
to spinal cord. This halwa somewhat tastes like that. Serve it warm and good
for in rainy season and in winter season for health and yumm to in taste also. The halwa when it was delivered looked very much
like the moong dal halwa. A big thanks to Vimitha, Padma, And also My motivators Srivalli and Vaishali
