This I learnt from my sister, this is without onions, so people can make during fasting days. Now for the next 15 days we cant have onions, garlic , i am looking forward recipes without onions. I prepared this when my cousin has come down, he liked both the dishes.
Tinda - 250 gms
Tomato - 2 or 3
Green chili - 1 or 2 ( adjust according to taste)
salt to taste
oil, hing, cumin seeds for tempering
cilantro for garnishing
Peel the skin and cut the tindas and make tomato puree.
In a pressure pan heat oil , add cumin seeds , when it splutters add hing and chopped green chili.
Add tomato puree , when the raw smell goes add the tinda and saute for 2 minutes.
Give two whistles and garnish with cilantro.
Goes well with roti.
This is taking part in Viki's side dish for chapati event.
I love this payasam. I made with ready made ada which is available in market. I followed the instructions in the packet. It tasted Yum
Rice ada - 1 /2 cup
Coconut milk - extracted from one medium size coconut ( Keep first milk separate and second milk separate)
Jaggery - 1 cup
Cardamon powder - one pinch
Make jaggery syrup and strain it and keep aside.
In the second milk add some water and cook the ada. When it cooked add the jaggery syrup.
Cook until the ada blends well with the jaggery syrup add cardamon powder.
When it cooked add the first coconut milk and give one boil and transfer in to a serving dish.
Garnish with cashews.
