Dear fiends,

PONDY

This November, we at Discover Chennai bring you 'heritage' edition wherein we tell you stories that celebrate Indian culture and chaos. Our cover story celebrates tradition but with a twist, while our food trail brings a healthy sweet from our glorious past. That perfect snack for your little ones. If one snack isn't yet, gobble it all up at the Virunthu. Check out our exclusive review of Maplai and we promise that a trip to ECR will be incomplete without their sumptous spread. Of course, what's Tamil nadu without the mention of saris. Forget Kanchipuram, our culture section will take you on a historical sari trail.

Creatives : MANAS CREATIONS

Saris or sweets, we have got you covered. As Chennai gets drenched in rains, why not soak in her rich heritage?

power balls

.


Porul vilanga urundai literally translates into balls whose ingredients you cannot guess. Yes, this seemingly simple snack hides high nutritive values and the best part, no sugar or fat is used for this sweet. Said to have originated from the Brahmin kitchens of Tamil Nadu, these balls are made to last for weeks and are ideal for travel. Go ahead, give your children a taste of our glorious past.

Recipe for porul vilanga urundai: Dry roast boiled rice as small batches in a thick bottomed pan with simmered heat until it pops and nice aroma comes. Let it cool and grind it well. Dry roast separately sesame seeds, groundnuts, chopped coconut pieces and keep aside. Heat jaggery in a thick pan with little water; once it dissolves, filter to remove mud. Boil it until you are able to roll it together when dropped in cold water. Turn off heat, mix groundnuts, sesame seeds, coconut, cardamom powder and half the porimavu. Keep sprinkling the rest of the porimavu and roll into balls while it is still hot.

Madurai Vaasanai This restaurant at Neelankarai, ECR is rooted in tradition in every sense of the word and serves food fit for a MAPLAI (groom)! Against the background of AR Rahman's 90's specials playing distinctly in the background, the ambiance is warm, inviting and lends a homely feel. With the umpteen dishes served, it becomes rather difficult to find a start and an end. But for all the rice lovers and bottomless stomachs, the Unlimited Madurai Virundhu is guaranteed to satiate the mind, body and soul. After the 'heartwarming' intake of Nenju Elambhu Soup, it was time to dig into something more earthy and the Naatukozhi Fry was perfect ! A huge, juicy piece of country chicken marinated with spices reminiscent of flavours of the interior villages of Tamilnadu was a great dish to begin with. The Mutton Chukka is entirely something else loaded with such intense flavours that it can leave you begging for more!! The BrainFry is a must try. Its fiery heat from the spices blends beautifully with the bland rice - unleashing tears of pleasure from one's eyes!

The mouthwatering Fried Fish, all wound up in chilies and traditional masalas is itself a standalone delicacy. The Fish curry with its pungent flavour and the authentic chicken curry were true to its promises and worthy of its place in this virundhu ! The Elaneer Payasam and the Jaggery based Caramel Pudding calmed the storm with its sweetness and distinctive smooth texture. Simply put, MAPLAI's Madurai Virundhu can foster human relationships, renew ties and bond them together for all eternity.

I TEA TALK

How would you describe Chennai to a new comer? Typically traditional and majestically modem

Could you tell us a little about how your organisation ? My dance school Sri Mudhraalaya is situated in Kottur village. All branches of learning dance: practical dancing, theory, stage craft, lighting techniques, nattuvangam, advanced abhinaya, choreography, teachers' training- are taught.

A must-visit heritage site in Chennai: Undoubtedly, Mamallapuram. The rock cut caves, emboss sculptures belonging to the 6th century, are worth a life time.

Chennai 8 Bharatanatyam: Rightfully the Mecca for classical natya! Make sure you are here during December-January, fondly known as 'music & dance season'.

The best place to taste the city's authentic Tamil cuisine: Tirukkural Unavagam in Adayar recreates age-old Tamil land recipes.

Best way to connect with Chennaiites: Tamil, of course! Put your palms together and say 'vanakkam' Must-buysfrom Chennai Kancipuram silks, for sure. Mysore-pak from Krishna Sweets, Poli from Surya Sweets, Puzungal arisi murukku from Suswaad & Mavadu (pickled tender mango) from Sri Vidya Must-try experiences in the city Walk along the Marina Beach, visit a Bharatanatyam class or a performance, soak in music; attend a wedding; watch a Rajini or Karnal movie, if possible on the first day of release!

L

A word of advice (tips) to the tourists in the city: Generally warm people, just enjoy roaming around this city! Good to know distance and fares before you hire an auto!

I

l f you were to recommend a staycation in

3hennai, where would it be? Woodlands & Taj

WALK

Vadapalani Andavar Temple Vadapalani Murugan Temple was renovated in the 1920s and a Rajagopuram was built during that time. Around 7,000 couples many there each year. According to the sthalapurana, Muruga devotee Annaswami Nayakar built the shed around 1890's and kept a Murugan painting there for his personal worship. During his worship, he experienced divine power entering his body and inspiring him to speak surprising things later found to be true ('arul vakku' - 'God blessed statements')

1- 4 1 3 rzT

The moolavar in standing posture resembles the Palani Muruga. Temple has a spacious hall used for marriages and religious discourse. The entrance to this temple is crowned with a Rajagopuram adorned with several stucco images depicting legends from the Skanda puranam. In front of the temple is the temple tank. The eastern tower rises to a height of 40.8 metres. The 108 bharata natyam dance gestures can be seen on the eastern tower.
