Mitahshu – the name makes me to call again and again… mitahshu, mitahshuu…
You may heard of rasukutty in village but still today’s talk sweet Mitahshu ever remains a rasukutty of the heart of Southern Tamil Nadu people.
Observed many times, people of our place much love to eat some sweet or snack items which are casually available nearby stands, thinking that taking some eatables to home is happier. Especially it happens in the side of father to give some lite bite items to their children’s, even they have slept in night also he make them awake and give. Notable thing is they never send off the associates or guest to go with empty hands. Surely while them leaving a bag of lite bites in their hands which streams their affection.
May be that reason, we witnesses here plenty of snack and sweet stall in bus terminal and common people gathering places. One step more the art of stacking and arranging the lite bites in stalls pulls our mind and eyes to buy those.
Mitahshu is crisply fried and dipped in perfectly prepared sugar syrup, ok for your better understanding I tell Jalebi Mittai. Rawrice and urad dal are the important ingredient for making and is golden fried in hot calm oil thus cooks evenly inside and crispy outer.
Consistency of the prepared sugar syrup speaks out the sweetness and tastiness of mitahshu. This sugar syrup is slightly watery and mitahshu is steeped in this sugar syrup for an hour. Between the times mitahshu absorbs sugar syrup that makes its inside juicy and outside remains crispy.
Raw rice and urad dal (uruttu uzhuthamparuppu) are soaking it in water separately for about 3 hours, and then raw rice is pounded into one by fourth and let it to dry out for few hours in sun or dry place. Combine tightly grinded urad dal batter with the raw rice, finally both mixed well and fried in even hot oil by piping. When you bite mitahshu you could feel the rice granules presence inside. Importantly the batter mixture is not allowed to ferment also.
Mitahshu is available in cheap price also which compose very tasty for our pocket and tongue.
You could find this mitahshu in tea stall of southern Tamil Nadu, one bite with mitahshu and a sip of tea/coffee. Could I want to express the taste???
Another news this mitahshu is serving as medicine to children’s, this one stops who suffer with non – stop stool…
