Camera . ( Er ..isn't it only fair that a rare event gets documented ?)
Big lemon sized Imli
8 green chillies
2 red chillies
Diced Yellow ripe pumpkin
Don't forget to add Hing ! ( that was my friend , who sent an SOS msg when she knew I was gonna try her recipe .) My friend who holds the IPR , Patent and copy rights to this recipe coerced me into using jaggery and 8 green chillies .
Boil diced pumpkins in Tamarind juice with Turmeric , salt .
Grind coconut , green chillies , 1/4 teaspoon mustard seeds , curry leaves into a fine paste .
Add to the now boiling Tamarind + pumpkin concoction .
Salt to taste .
Temper with Coconut oil - mustard seeds ,curry leaves and red chillies .
Add rice flour in a sauce form for better consistency .
Add jaggery .
Goes well with Rice and Adai . Predictably, I tried it with both .
The raw ground mustard which when added to the boiling tamarind gives a heady aroma and a tangy taste .
That was Parangikai puli Pachadi .
If and When I cook , it shows .
