Tomato In Curd Gravy
Posted by Annita on June 22, 2006
|As we all know rice is the staple food of Kerala.A Malayalee can never find an alternative for rice.Along with the steamed rice a ‘Chaaru curry'(a curry which has more gravy,that can be poured over rice) is also a must in my home.And i always waste endless time thinking what to prepare for ‘Chaaru curry’ ,other than the usual Sambar,Rasam & Pulissery.I was in the search of such ‘Chaaru curry’ recipes for quite a while and i’ve found one recently which goes very well with rice.Everybody here liked it and so i thought of sharing it with you.
It goes like..
|Tomatoes cut into small pieces- 5
Sliced Onions – 2
Chopped Green chillies – 4
Drumsticks(Muringakkai) cut into 5 or 6 pieces – 2
(You can substitute Drumsticks with Potatoes also.When Potatoes are used cut it into thin long stripes and cook it along with tomatoes)
Chilly powder – 1 tbsp
Turmeric powder – 1/2 tbsp
Curry leaves – A few
Salt – As needed
Curd – 1 cup
|Grind together coconut,cumin seeds and garlic.In a vessel add drumsticks,tomatoes,green chillies and onions along with salt,turmeric powder,chilly powder,few curry leaves and necessary water.The vegetables should be completely immersed in water.Cook till vegetables are well done.Now the ground mixture is added and simmer till the gravy thickens.Switch off the stove and allow it to cool for a while.Add curd and stir well.Heat it on a low flame for few more minutes.Do not boil it.Heat oil in a pan and allow mustard seeds to splutter.Stir in red chillies,curry leaves and shallots and fry for a while.Add this seasoning to the curry.Mix well and serve hot with steamed rice.Here I’ve used potatoes as there was no drumsticks in my refrigerator.Courtesy :- Ginu Joyce from Pachakam.com|
