Thani Kootu is a very traditional and old recipe.This is usually made at home during sumangali poojai."Thani" means "alone" in Tamil, this kootu is made up of gravy without any vegetable and dal that is why it is called "Thani kootu".During this pooja they make five vegetables with the same gravy.Vegetables like Snake guard,cluster beans,chow chow,brinjal, are boiled and combined with the gravy.It is made during Pongal(sankaranthi)festival too.

I wanted to try something new with these extra supply of mangoes from my neighbor.I was browsing for recipes for mango pudding desserts etc then finally settled down with mango muffins.I always stick to simple eggless recipes.I have not tasted these made with egg.Anyways coming back to the recipe...

Sandesh is a simple milk sweet. It is a Bengali sweet made with curdled milk.It can be made easily and quickly so if you have some extra milk at home and you are craving for some sweet then you should go for it.I actually have few extra pkts of milk now and craving for a mild sweet.It does not need any fancy ingredient or elaborate procedure to make this.If you prefer you can add some food color or kesar dissolved in milk to make it more flavorful. However i have made it plain without adding any artificial color or any other flavor because i preferred this milky flavor in the Bengali sweet!!!!
