Be it any kozhambu, we both of us drool over Hee hee ( we eat anything as far as that is edible that is a different thing ). But vendaikkai is in the top of the list.
This is typical kovai style.After so many days of trying ,now I am able to make this proper vendaikkai kozhambu.
Lady's finger - 12 nos.(small)
Small onion - 10 nos.
Red chilly - 4 nos.
Coriander powder - 3 tsp.
Tamarind extract - 3 tsp.(thick)
Coconut - 1 handful
Roasted channa dhal - 2 tsp.
Oil - 4 tsp.
Salt to taste
1. Heat oil in a pan and fry small onions (no need to cut).once it is slightly brown add red chillies, coriander powder and fry for few seconds.
2. Now add coconut and roasted dhal into the pan, stir once and turn off the stove.( dont fry coconut for long , then it will start giving oil smell).
3.Keep aside the pan and let it cool until it gets ready to be run in a mixie.Then grind it and make a paste.
4.Take another pan and 2 tsp of oil.Once the oil is heated , fry the lady's finger until it gets cooked.
5. Now add the ground mixture into the above pan , add tamarind extract , enough water and salt .Bring it to boil.
6. Curry will start thickening, so add some more water if you feel it is too thick.
Kozhanbu is ready !!!
