Andhra style hot Milagu Kuzhambu

Got tis wonderful recipe from ""'s cookery corner.I avoided few ingredients and added few to match my taste ;-).Ok here comes the super yummy hot pepper kulambu/menasu gojju...


To Grind:

1.Black pepper......1 tbsp

2.Urad dhal.......1 tbsp

3.Red chillies.....3 to 5nos

4.Tamarind........a small lemon size

5.Fenugreek seeds(vendhayam).........1/2tbsp

6.Curry leaves/corinader(karuvepilai)........3/4 cup

Other ingredients:

1.Oil............5 to 7 tbsp(i used gingelly oil here)

2.Salt to taste.

3.Mustard seeds......1/2 tbsp

4.Jaggery.........2 tbsp(optional)

5.Turmeric powder,hing a pinch

6.Any vegetable like bendhi,drum stick,brinjal,onion,garlic etc...1 cup chopped(i used bitter gourd here).


1.Heat half spoon of oil in a kadai,fry all the 'to grind' ingredients.Grind the fried items to a paste with needed water.Keep it aside.

2.Heat rest of the oil in a kadai,splutter mustard seeds and fry the chopped veggies.

3.Once the veggies are done,add in the grounded paste,salt,turmeric powder and hing.Add 2 cups of water.Let it boil until it shrinks to half the amount in the volume.

4.Add jaggery and let tis boil for few more minutes.Switch off the flame once it is done.Serve with hot rice.

This tastes heaven when served with urad papad,onion vadagam and potato fry.Try tis out and pour in ur feedback.Cooking time takes roughly from 20 to 30 mintues.
