More Kozhambu 2

This is another way of making more kozhambu, the same procedure with some modifications. Here is the recipe.

  1. Okra - 1 cup
  2. turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
  3. Salt to taste
  4. Thick Buttermilk - 2 1/2 cup
  5. Coconut - 3 tbsp
For Soaking:-
  1. Coriander seeds - 2 tsp
  2. Channa dhall - 1 tsp
  3. Green chillies - 2(acc to taste)
  4. cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
for Seasoning:-
  1. oil - 1 tsp
  2. Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
  3. Fenugreek seeds - 1/4 tsp
  4. Asafoetida powder - a pinch
  5. curry leaves - few
First soak the all the above given ingredients for soaking, to one hour. After an hour, add coconut to the ingredients and grind it into a fine paste. Keep it aside. Take a pan, put the chopped okra to it, add required amount of water, turmeric powder, salt and let it cook. When the vegetable becomes tender, add the coconut paste and add a little amount of water and let it cook nicely. when both mixed nicely, turn off the stove. Remove the pan from the stove top, add the thick buttermilk to it. Mix it well. This is more kozhambu.

Now take a small pan, pre heat oil, add mustard seeds when it splutters, add fenugreek seeds, asafoetida powder and curry leaves and let it fry till golden brown. Pour it on top of more kozhambu. This can be a wonderful side dish for paruppu usli rice, variety rice and also with white rice.

Vidhya, I sometimes get so mixed up with our hindi veg names.....OKRA means bhindi, right? I am going to try out the recipe today if it is bhindi. My hubby loves bhindi.

BTW, why have you taken of the URL option from this comment box? That was better.
