Pakoda Curry

This similar to that of Paruppu Urundai Khuzhambu.But Slight Changes in Ingredients of the gravy and Urundai.And also,I fried the Paruppu balls like pakoda & the gravy also very thick.For this no other special sidedish is required to have because the fried pakoda itself can have as a sidedish.Here is the recipe…


For Pakoda:

200g toor dhall
2 green chilli chopped
a small peace ginger chopped
10 small onion chopped
3tsp grated coconut
1tsp fenugreek seeds
salt to taste

For Gravy:

7 dry redchilli
1tsp peppercorns
2tsp fenugreek seeds
2tsp cumin seeds
oil for frying
1tsp mustard seeds
1 sprig curry leaves
1tsp oil
1cup thick tamarind juice
turmeric powder
1 chopped onion
1 chopped tomatoes
salt to taste


Grind the pakoda ingredients coursely and deep fry the it in oil and keep aside.Then fry the chilli,pepper,fenugreek seeds,cumin seeds and grind it into nice powder and keep aside.Heat the oil in a heavy bottomed kadai,add the mustard seeds,onion,tomatoes and curry leaves.Add the tamarind juice,grinded powder,turmeric powder,salt.Let it cook for 5 mins.Once the gravy become very thick add the pakoda and remove it from the stove.Since this gravy is very thick,you can have it with hot rice/roti.
