Finally … here i’m with my posts after a long break..thank you guys again for not losing the patience.
I’m almost settled in my new place,but haven’t started much cooking.Anyways I’ve found some recipes in my draft which i dont want to miss.These are the recipes which i’ve tried from my dear fellow bloggers.
This cherupayar stew is adapted from RP’s workshop and i must say it tasted great with puttu.Thanks RP.
Whole Moong Dal(Cherupayar) – 1/2 cup
Grated coconut -3/4 cup (You can use unsweetened coconut powder available in Indian stores)
Turmeric powder – 1/4 tsp
Cumin seeds (Jeerakam) – 1/2 tsp
Green chillies – 4 (Use it according to your spice level)
Shallots(Ulli) – 2 or 3
Oil – as needed
Salt – to taste
For popping :
Mustard seeds – 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves – 1 sprig
Red Chillies – 2 or 3
Cook moong dal in a pressure cooker adding salt and just enough water, until it turns soft.Now grind together coconut,cumin seeds,green chillies and shallotsto a smooth paste.Add one cup of water and grind it again.Now extract the coconut milk using a sieve.Add this extracted coconut milk into the cooked moong dal and let it boil in a medium flame.Simmer for 2 more minutes and switch off the stove.
Now heat oil in another pan and pop mustard seeds,curry leaves and red chillies.Pour the seasonings into the curry.Mix and serve hot.
