I've started cook for good (Well!! Whose good? I seriously dont know) By around 2 weeks I've learnt cooking quite some items. I am just bloging so that I dont have to make ISD every time am stuck up in the kitchen :P. OK here goes my first item:
The following ingredients are required for the preparation:
fistfull of Ulutham parupu (kaipidi alau)
2 kanja milagai (2 dry chilly)
1 kattu pudhina ( 1 pck of Mint leaves)
2 teaspoons of tamarind paste
Coconut, as per the taste required/optional ( I used less than a half coconut)
Salt as per taste
- Heat the tawa with a litte oil
- Add the Ulutham parupu and the dried chillies
- Fry it until the dhal truns golden brown. Turn off the stove
- Add a pinch of asafoetida for the taste. mix well.
- Empty the contents into a dry bowl
- Now add the washed pudhina leaves (without water) into the tawa. No need to light the stove.
- Let the leaves cook in the mild heat
- Meanwhile, powder the fried dal and chillies in the mixie.
- Now add 1 teaspoon of the tamarind paste, 1/4 spoon of salt, a little water so that they mix well and grind
- Add the grated coconut and cooked pudhina in this mixture and little water for the consistency and rind well.
- Taste it and add salt and tamarind paste as required.
- The coconut in this recipie is optional. This same procedure can be userd for curry leaves thogayal but without coconut.
