|Chick peas/white channa||1cup(cooked)|
|Red Chilly powder||11/4tsp|
|Tamarind paste||3/4tsp diluted in 1/4 cup of water|
|Cinnamon||1 inch piece|
|Coriander leaves||to garnish|
|Ginger||a small piece|
Chop the onion,garlic and tomatoes to fine pieces,cut the drumstick to 2 inch pieces.Cook the chick peas in the pressure cooker with a pinch of salt.Grind the ingredients given to fine paste and keep aside.
Heat the pan with the oil,crackle the fennel seeds,cloves and cinnamon,add the onion,garlic,curry leaves.Saute till the onion becomes transparent.Once the onion is done add the tomato and cook until mushy.
- The consistency can be adjusted according to the preference,I make it thick for rice whereas for dosa bit watery.
- If the tomatoes are sour enough then no need of tamarind paste.
- Other veggies such as brinjal,radish,potato can also be used.
- Instead of grinding the ginger and garlic with the coconut,a tsp of ginger&garlic paste can also be used.
