I got this in a WhatsApp so I do not know the authenticity of it.

The Curd Rice is the only Indian food which can able to release a Chemical called Tryptophan in Brain. Indians alone take Curd as Curd. But western world takes it as Yogurt, which got Sugar too, and sugar will not calm your Brain, but increase Glucose level and will put you more restless. Sugar is danger for the Balance of Neural activity. In triggers hyperactivity.[/FONT]

[FONT=&quot]But Curd rice is the only food which can release Tryptophan in Brain, which calms down and brings a cool thinking, and your neurons are recharging with a mild rest because of Tryptophan. ( In Sanskrit there's word in this Chemical, as Thrupthophan, Thrupthi means Satisfaction).[/FONT]

[FONT=&quot]Curd rice is the Scientific reason for the success of Tamil Brahmins, as it the Best brain food which activates the Brain in a balanced manner for a Tropical climate![/FONT]

'Thachchi mammam' as fondly named, this is always yummy!

My preparation is one of the favorites during our family get together!

Slightly over cooked rice is the basic need.

Mash it lightly, cool it, mix with milk and half a cup of curd.

Add finely chopped green chillies, coriender leaves and dried grapes.

Season with mustard seeds, urid dhal and curry leaves, sputtered in oil.

Mix well and leave it to set for three hours!

Yummy item is ready! :thumb:

dadyannam.......it is like THACHHI MAMMAM for kids...thayir saadham with maa vadu/maagaani kizhangu pickles nice

combination for palakkad brahmins....

Dear RR ji..

I alter the recipe slightly..that is I cook the rice with split moong dhall to add more protein.

Then I use Greek Yogurt for a creamier feel.
Then same as you do temper mustard seeds..ural dhal and at times I top it with pomegranate seeds and as usual garnish with.chopped coriander
leaves.

I usually make Thayir sadam on days I feel lazy to cook!

No..it doesnt look yellowish cos I use more rice than moong dhall..it just blends in not visible.
But i eat it right away cos it tends to dry up if left too long cos Greek Yogurt is very thick.

In mid seventies when Bambinoo Semiya was introduced, a cooking competition was announced in Madurai to promote the brand - Bambinoo semiya as the main ingredient. I was crowned சமையல் ராணி with a gift hamper. The winning recipe is just a different தயிர் சாதம் Bagalabath where semiya and not rice is the basic ingredient . The other item was semiya birds nest with hard boiled egg inside! My mummy used to make yummy Bagalabath and had picked it from her - The birds nest I learned in Cultural Academy Santhome while I was enrolled post matric!

1. All yoghurt does not have sugar in them. In UK yoghurt comes just as pure yoghurt with the natural taste of it without any trace of sugar. Go to any Sainsburry or Iceland outlet, you get it. I do not know about US as I did not have the opportunity to eat thayirsadham while I was there.

2. Thayir sAdham goes well with fried/roasted Mormilakaai vatral and plain and simple salty NarththangAi pickle. My experience.

3. A kavirayar once said after a sumptuous treat of thayir sadham:

பழையது ததி மிஸ்ரம்
பாதி தைலாபிஷேகம்
கருக்கின தில சூர்ணம்
வெடுக்கென வடுமாங்காய்
பாக்யவான் தோ பவந்து.

he must have got a real kick from what he ate.

In my son's sweet home, it is always home made curd -

toned milk is used for adults and whole organic milk is used for kids. :)

Curd rice is the Scientific reason for the success of Tamil Brahmins, as it the Best brain food which activates the Brain in a balanced manner for a Tropical climate!(#1)


Different perception on dadiyonum!

Jambu's nephew with his family from New York was our guest and spent 2 days in Madurai. They indulged in everything like பருத்திப்பால்,ஜிகர்தண்டா children liked கடலை மிட்டாய், ஆரஞ்சு மிட்டாய் But strictly no தயிர் சாதம் - even if it's Algarkoil Dadiyonum I was curious The reason ?

He studied in TVS School Madurai He joined IIT after his +1 (allowed at that time) He was a bright student and was advised by his Maths teacher to avoid தயிர் சாதம் for lunch in school as it makes you sleepy in AN classes To quote his teacher "தத்யாேனம் makes you a தத்தி!" avoid it if you wish to crack JEE His son is appearing for the test to enter Bronx Science School and the same advise passed on to his son

I got a message in WhatsApp that the boy got his admission!

Admission to Bronx Science involves passing the Specialized High Schools Admissions Test. Each November, about 30,000 eighth and ninth graders take the 3-hour test for admittance to eight of the nine specialized high schools. Approximately 1,000 to 1,050 applicants are accepted each year.

Bronx Science is ranked among the top 50 high schools in the country as well as among the top few in New York State. Eight former students have received the Nobel Prize in science, more than any other secondary school in the world.

The father P.hd in Chemical Technology - Columbia University This is his personal experience and not his thesis on brain chemistry for his Phd. I am sure!

Curd made from buffalo milk MAY make a person dull !!

My grandfather used to scold those who are weak in Math, as 'erumaith thayiru'!! ;)

All children in our family are bright and all of them love 'thachchi mammam'. :thumb:
