Dear Chennai people, and Chennai travelers!!


You would get bored by taking regular south Indian meal with strong white rice, half boiled dhal, thicken sambar, red color vathal kuzhambu/spice kuzhambutomato floating rasam. If you have habit of eating this meal daily, you should try lunch meal at Thirukkural Restaurant located at Adyar Gandhinagar , 2nd main road. 

Barnyard millet sambar riceKodo millet lemon rice, Biryani made in Seeraga Samba rice, proso millet curd riceRaagi Roti, Peal millet koozh, banana stem pachadi are served as part of a meal which reminds our traditional, 100% percent healthy food and you will get satisfaction for your money.

Once upon a time, small grains were our main food. Corporate companies spread rumors that Adding coconut oil in the food will increase the fat and develop a heart attack. Then, we completely ignored coconut oil from our diet. Similarly, corporate companies changed our mind and removed cereals from our kitchen by saying eating cereal food will increase body heat, will not digest easily, only hard workers have to eat and it will give all kinds of diseases. But time has brought us back to the cereals.

Cereal meals can be eaten at only near parks or natural food festivals. Thirukkural Restaurant provides these healthy foods along with mild air cooling and Ilayaraja's music.

Karthikeyan Himayavarman and Suresh Jaganathan, who had been earning hundreds of millions of rupees in a month at a multinational corporation thrown away the job and opened this restaurant under the guidance of great scientist Nammazhvar. The restaurantbegan with a two-seater, has gradually grown into a big restaurant.

The atmosphere of the restaurant is very beautiful. Every table has a small Bullock cart to hold tissue papers and Citronella curtains to hide sunlight are added beauty and natural. On one side of the LED screen, they are playing video that show farmer who produced the traditional rice called Poongar, to encourage and appreciate them.

Their restaurant start time is 12 pm. They are providing two lunch combos called Nammazhvar Virundhu(feast) and Tholkappiar virundhu. Cost of Nammazhvar virundhu is Rs.158. Total 19 items in it. As appetizer they are giving Cardiospermum halicacabum (Mudakkathan) soup or physalis (Manathakkali) soup. This hot soup will trigger hunger immediately once intake. Sometime, they provide old rice water (Neeraharam) instead of soup which is made from traditional rices like Maappillai samba or Poongar which will add extra flavor, taste and vitamin and minerals.

Three verities of raita being served. One verity made with eight vegetables like carrot, bottle gourd, raw banana, snake gourd ground paste along with grated coconut and curd. Second one made with finely chopped cabbage, grated coconut and ground nut powder, cumin powder and black pepper powder. Third one made with finely chopped banana stem along with that fenugreek, cumin and coriander seed paste. Color, smell are different from each other. In addition one mixed vegetable poriyal being served for people who don't like raw raitas.

Next is vegetable salad made with Carrot, cucumber and Onion. Fruit salad which has fruits like apple, pomegranate, pineapple and grapes. Banana chips being served. Apart from this, one bowl of sweet flattens rice made with coconut milk, brown sugar and shredded coconut. All are special and unique.

Thespesia populnea commonly known as the Portia tree, Pacific rosewood or Milo, among other names, is species of flowering plant belonging to the mallow family, Malvaceae.

When we talk about this tree, I remember we make small horn out of this leave and blown. My father told me about medicinal benefit of this tree during my childhood. Immediately I checked with google for more detail. 

These trees are a sanctuary for caterpillar yearly once during rainy days. If this caterpillar bites, we used to apply coconut oil to get rid off itching. Those are unforgettable childhood memories. 

Also, those days Portia tree leaves are used as food serving leaves. But due to the technology we started using unhealthy aluminium foil, plastic paper foil. This is different story. Still in few villages, we see people using this tree for decoration of their fence. Let's see about this tree in more details below.

In Tamil, this tree is called as Poovarasu.(King of flowers). As per its name, it has many medicinal benefits for us when compared to other flowers. We can see this flower tree in the courtyard and in the gardens of many villages. This is one of the trees that live more than a hundred years long. It is found throughout India and Sri Lanka. Especially in South India. All the parts like leafflower, bark, seed are useful. Generally, the Portia tree is having four types. Desi Portia tree will have flowers throughout the year.

To protect the skin: We need to protect the skin carefully which is body's largest part. So that diseases can not enter into the body. Mix Portia tree bark powder, sandal wood powder and aeglemarmeles tree powder together. Apply this mixed powder on the skin frequently. This will prevent rash, scabies pigmented area on the skin. If you make juice out of the Portia tree seed pods, you will get gel kind of juice out of this. This juice can help to remove darker patches on the faceskin darkness due to neckless from the skin. Add two Portia seed pods,one ripe leaf, two hibiscus flowers make a paste like shampoo. Apply this shampoo during the bath. This will completely remove dandruff. If you apply the same paste into the body you will get shiny skin and it will remove Embryonic ring on the eyes.

Portia bark: The bark will have sweet taste if the tree is more than a hundred years old and red in color. Siddhars say that this stripe is a herbal. This hundred-year-old bark is broken down and extracted juice. This juice can be taken for 154(3 mandalam in tamil) days continuously to get rid off any kind of diseases and you will get a healthy body. Both Male and female can consume. In ancient times, women had a Portia bark powder along with honey to avoid a pregnancy.

Portia bark is equal to birth control. Removing Hepatitis Disorders. Strengthen manhood for men. Destroy intestinal worms. Ripe leaf, flower, seed, seed pods, bark, etc. are having capability to cure stabbing, swollen, scab.

To strengthen liver: Liver provides energy to all the body's function. If the liver suffers, your body will face a lot of health trouble. Hence, It is necessary to strengthen the liver. Jaundice is the effect of weaken liver. The ripe leaf of the Portia tree is rich in iron. Add one teaspoon cumin seed with ripe leaves to make juice and drink to cure jaundice. Crush Portia tree ripe leaves 2, seed pods -4, cumin seeds -2 spoon, fennel seeds 1 spoon, Portia tree bark -1, Amla 1 cup, small onion 4, thistle 5g together and boil this with three cup water until it reduces to 1/2 cup. Drink this water to strengthen kidneys. It will stop shivering of Hands and foot. It will protect the body from getting jaundice.

For the Syphilis disease: Agathiyar is said Portia tree destroy the body's germs and cure Syphilis. Portia trees seed pod gel milk will cure Syphilis. This is the Siddha's best experienced medicine. A scratching mucus on the skin of the scalp will disappear if we apply the seed pod milk. Inflammation of the joints is dissolved. Portia bark and oil will cure skin diseases.
