What to cook and how to eat are 2 very important things we should know as Brahmins have inherited several centuries of art of cooking and serving people. What we eat defines who you are and how you eat determines your behavioural aspect.



The 3 golden rules to eat:
Neer Karukki (warm water)
Ney urukki(ghee)
More perukki (buttermilk)


The rule of rotation must be followed to avoid addiction and to adjust our body to coastal and tropical climate conditions:
4 days cooking with toor dhal
2 days cooking payar dhal
1 day no dhal
(Atleast kalathu paruppu should be changed)


The rasam menu rotation:
3 days tomato rasam
1 day milagu rasam
1 day jeera rasam
1 day lemon rasam
1 day rasam without paruppu


The sambar or main menu item rotation:
2 days sambar
1 day poricha kootu
1 day milagu/ jeera vathal/ poondu/ sundakkai vattha Kuzhambu
1 day more Kuzhambu
1 day should be just with powders like paruppu podi , kariveppilai podi,kothamalli/pudina rice


Rotation of Kaai or side dish:
4 days cooked vegetable curry
1 day Masiyal karunai
1 day salad only
1 day just Appalam or Vadam


Oorgai should be rotated with thugayal for 3 days.
Thayir Pachidi can be added when main menu item is spicy.
Buttermilk should always be there in the menu.


This helps to keep our body cool and our tummy.��
Happy eating to all Mami and Mamas ��

Very good list, easy to follow. However I doubt whether the modern generation which has developed a taste for "Global cuisine" will accept this !

Secondly, will some one suggest simple vegetarian diet chart for octogenerians. Though internet is full of diet charts, they are mostly for western senior citizens.

Do you eat the same type of food everyday. Athimber Sir?

My weekly menu is very simple:

Breakfast: Thrice Oat meal with fruits; Thrice bread; Once idly or uppumA.

Lunch: Twice sAmbar + curry; once rasam + usili (beans/ carrot); once miLagu kuzhambu + curry;

once kaRivEppilai kuzhambu + curry; once moLagoottal + appalam / finger chips; Sunday special is poori + potato.

Tea time: Coffee with biscuits / rusk and one fruit.

Dinner: Idly / dhOsA / ravA uppumA / sEmiyA uppumA / chappAthi / adai - with some thottikaRadhukku. :cool:

Dear madam,

I always prefer lighter foods which I can easily cook. I didn't have the expertise to cook variety foods. I used to try them occasionally.
