Pigeon pea/red gram (Thuvaram parapu) and Daal (payatham parapu) are considered a must (for brain development) in the case of vegetarian children. Many say it isn't advisable to feed on Ragi alone
Never heard of that ever before.

I used to think that Ladies finger is good for brain development. Its my favorite vegetable.

Any way, a balanced diet is good enough for all kind of development.

You love their fingers?So is it the other way round?:pound:
Yup! Fingers around my "you-know-what", you pervert !

Question to Tamilians.

Because meals are heavy and they drive ppl to sleep, hence it should only be eaten during they day. Tiffin is light, and doesn't drive people to sleep, hence it should be taken during the night :troll:
They true reason, eating in the night would lead to being obese, hence a light dinner.
PS Body builders don't eat after 7 P.M.

I don't know the reason. Maybe because it is not heavy like meals.

But frankly, I can eat anything edible at night provided it is healthy and tastes good.

Whenever I order rice at Chennai for dinner the answer will be "Telugaa!!".It drives me nuts frankly tiffins are quite bad for health at night as one must take more varieties during night.The Tamil tiffin addiction drives me crazy

I too don't like Chennai eating habits, In Trichy and Madurai Barotta is more famous at night.

I generally prefer to eat a heavy barotta meal at night with Chicken Kurma, half boil etc.

I love barottas though they are made of Maida instead of wheat. LOL! Barottas are the standard dinner in TN and Parottas are standard breakfast in Punjab, nah ...

there is a difference between a Tamil and Telugu Thali even though both are rice focussed.
In a Telugu Thali the course will start with Podi,rokali pachhadi/Avakaya,Fry,Curry ,pulusu/Sambhar/Rasam and ends with curd

Where as a Tamil thali will start with Sambhar,Rasam and Curd all fries and curries are stuff with Sambhar

The best Barotta I've had was in Kerala, near kutrallam border.

Frankly in Chennai it is hard to come across good barotta . And most of it is not good, even the Kurma is tasteless.
