Mulaku varutha puli (seasoned tamarind soup) and awards

Preparation time: 10 mins | Cooking time: 15 mins

This is a very simple and quick recipe. It is not a new dish but I guess it is as old as our ancestors. As far as I'm aware I've only seen this in Palakkad. It goes well with rice and some spicy side dish. My grand mom always used to prepare a special omelette that goes well with this. I will post it very soon.

Ingredients
Small onions(shallots)-10
Green chillies-3
Fenugreek seeds-1/4tsp
Mustard seeds-1/2tsp
Curry leaves-2sprigs
Tamarind-lime sized ball
Jaggery-a small piece(optional)
Salt to taste
Oil-2tsp

Method
Soak tamarind in water and extract juice from it. Heat oil in a pan, crackle mustard seeds and fry fenugreek seeds and curry leaves. To this add chopped onion and green chillies and fry till the onions become transparent. Add tamarind juice and heat it up. When it starts to froth, add jaggery and remove from heat. Perfect with hot steamed rice.



My friend Ally has shared these awards with me. I'm very honoured. Thanks a bunch.
