I had a craving for some spicy dish. As most of you all know 'chettinad' recipes are known for its hot & spicy flavour, I opted this dish.
Ginger-a small piece
Curry leaves-a few
Coriander leaves-a few
Salt to taste
Dry red chillies-2
Split roasted gram(pottukadala)-1tsp
Cinnamon-1 small stick
Dry roast all the ingredients under spice mixture taking care they don't get over burnt. Saute the onions, ginger & garlic with 2 tsp oil until soft. Now make a paste of the spice mixture and sauteed onion mixture. Keep it aside.
Heat some oil in a pan, add the curry leaves and bay leaf. After 2 mins add the cleaned & sliced mushroom, turmeric powder and saute for 5 mins. Now add the ground paste and saute until they are brown in colour. Add chopped tomatoes, salt and cook until the oil separates. Add a little water and cook for 10 mins on slow flame. Mix in the chopped coriander leaves.
