Idli with Thakali Kuzhambu!!


Chutney,vadakari,sambar...... what are these ?? side dishes for idli, dosais...these are the ones i knew. But my MIL taught me Thakali kuzhambu which as soon as I had for the first time became my favorite one.It has all the spices ... which will taste very nice and very very easy to make too.

Ingredients
1. Onion – 2
2. Tomato -3
3. Cloves-2
4. cinnamon -2 small sticks
5. Bengal Gram –a fistful
6. Red chillies – 3
7. Coriander powder – 2 tsp
8. Pepper corn -3
9. fennel seeds -1 tsp
10. Cumin seeds-1 tsp
11. freshly grated coconut - ¼ cup
For tempering
12.oil
13. Mustard seeds
14. Curry leaves
15. chopped onion – ½
Method
Chop the onions, tomatoes . Heat the pan and put oil. Sauté all the things given in the ingredients list.Let it cool. Then put in the mixer and grind into a smooth paste.
Again heat oil in the pan and put mustard seeds. Let it splutter. Then put onion, green chillies,curry leaves and sauté. Then add the ground paste . Add water till you get the pouring consistency.let it boil for 10 to 15 minutes.
Serve hot with idlis or dosais!
