Anyway, my friend Aishwarya , a great cook by herself who constantly encourages me in blogging by trying out my recipes and coming out with good feedback everytime I post , immediately said yes when I asked her to contribute a post. Aishu, I owe you so much.Thanks a ton sweet heart for trying so much to keep my blog alive.:)
I am getting lots of brickbats for my sinful mushroom kurma for having included it in so called health conscious blog, so will try to limit myself only to the healthier ones from now on. Thanks once again for keeping in mind about this space and coming up with perfect recipe Aishu.
Looking forward to more such recipes from you da ;)..Lets get into today's recipe:
Fennel seeds 2tsps
Garam masala powder-1/2tsp
Tamarind pulp -1-11/2tbsps
Milk or coconut milk-1/2 cup
Soak dhal for about 2 hours and drain water completely. Grind the dhal coarsely in a mixer. Do not add water while grinding. Grease a plate with oil and spread this dhal mixture and steam in a pressure cooker for 15 mins. Cool and cut into small squares or give a couple of churns in a mixer.
In a kadai heat oil. To it add cloves, cinnamon, fennel seeds and onion. When onion turns light brown add tamarind pulp and all the powders. Boil till the raw smell disappears. Now add the dhal pieces and boil well. Lastly add the milk and check the consistency. Consistency must be like thick gravy. Do not boil much after adding milk. Remove from fire and garnish with chopped coriander leaves.
