Our traditional recipe is Kummayam. One interesting story behind this dish. Once there lived a great devotee, Vishnu Chittar, known as Peirya Azhwar, he imagined himself as Mother of Lord Krishna and feeding her son Krishna and he wrote a poetry about that experience as “after having devoured kummayam with butter, and having emptied the curd pot, and also having destroyed the asuras – demons – you pose like an innocent baby in front of me. I doubt if you are my son and I am terrified to even feed you!”. So Kummayam was offered as food to Baby Krishna. So this is a very healthy food for babies.
