I am only familiar with a small part of
the Prabandham, but even there, there are some
dishes mentioned.  Andal promises Azhagar at
thirumaaliruncholai that she will fill 100 pots  
full of akkaara-vadisil.  I know that akaara-vadisil 
is milk-based, but I have only eaten it a handful
of times (quite yummy!) so I don't know what's in
it.

Also, Periyaazhvaar in yashoda-bhaava tells kaNNan
that 

appamkalandha siRRuNdi akkaarampaalilkalandhu
soppadan^aan_suttuvaiththEn thinnaluRidhiyEln^ambee!

She has prepared appam, siRRuNdi, akkaaram with milk
and other things ready for him to eat.  Many of these
dishes are still made on Sri Jayanthi in orthodox
households.

I leave it for the real chefs to actually give uss
recipes!
