    saarina pudi

    Saarina Pudi (masala powder to make gojju,saaru)

    I am giving a ratio. If u want to make more u can increase the ratio of ingredients accrodingly.

    Ingredients

    Dhaniya (corriander seeds) - 250 gms.
    Red chillies (hot variety) - 100 gms
    Red chillies (less hot variety, ex Byadagi) - 50 gms
    Jeera (cumin seeds) - 50 gms
    Menthya (fenugreek seeds) - 25 gms
    Mustard - 25 gms
    pepper - 25 gms
    Hing - 1/2 tsp


    Method

    With a little oil roast dhaniya and chillies separately till a fine aroma comes. Dry roast the other ingredients except hing. Be cautious not to over roast or there will be a burnt smell. In the end add hing. Mix all the ingredients and powder and store in a airtight container.


    This powder can be used to gojju and saaru. If u r comfortable with the sambar powder u r currently using then u can use that as well for gojju.

    Hi Prati, your recipes are very good.

    Dear Prati, You are giving lovely recipes. I took the recipe of Mangalore Rasam Powder from the net. I found it very good. Is what you have given for saru, your rasam powder, as well? Please let me know. Also give your recipe for bath powder that can be generally used for any vegetable bath & also your version of vangi bath.
    Love & regards,
    Chithra.

    Thank you

    HI Chithra

    I am flattered to get a note of appreciation from a senior in this field like you. Thanks

    Yes the saarina pudi i have given is used for rasam also. Yes surely will post the baath pudi recipe which can be used for certain palyas also.

    Oh wow, akki rotti! Very good indeed Prathi! My family used to soak some puffed rice and add it to the rice flour because it makes the rottis even softer...is that so? I am vary about making akki rottis here as it can get a bit messy with having to rinse the pans with water between each rotti. Well, nothing comes without tears I guess:) Love all your recipes. Yet to try them though, but I defenitely will. Thanks again. Extra thanks for the saru masala powder.

    Hi Kamla,

    I dont know about mixing the puffed rice, though i have heard people mixing little chiroti rava with rice flour for akki rotti. But i make it just with rice flour and it comes out great.

    About ur apprehensions of getting messy with rinising pans each time, it is not compulsory. U can as well leave the tawa to cool by itself before proceeding to the next rotti. Rinsing the pans in water helps them to cool faster and thus speeds up the process too. Thats it.

    Bele saaru

    Bele Saaru

    Toor dal - 1 cup
    Tamarind juice - from a lemon size ball of tamarind
    Jaggery powder - 2 tsp
    Saarina pudi - 2 spoons (as i have given in the thread before)
    Water
    Salt
    curry leaves and corriander leaves.

    Pressure cook the toor dal with 3 cups of water with a pinch of tumeric and few drops of oil. Once cool, transfer the dal to a vessel and add the saarina pudi, salt, jaggery, curry leaves, corriander leaves and boil well for about 10 minutes. Now add the tamarind juice and boil for 5 minutes and take off the fire.

    Put vaggarane/seasoning

    Heat a tspn of oil or ghee. To this add a spoon of mustard and a pinch of hing and allow spluttering. Add this to the saaru. Serve hot with rice accompanied with pickle, papad or any palya.

    Note - U can add a tomato if u want. If u add tomato, reduce the tamarind a little.
    The Consistency is thicker than rasam and thinner than sambar.

    Cabbage Palya

    Palya is dry subji or stir fry

    I will give the recipe for cabbage palya here. U can follow the same recipe for all the vegetables, mentioned below.
    U can make this from the following vegetable (inidvidually)

    Finely chopped beans, cluster beans, english gourd, cabbage, beetroot, brinjal,pumpkin.

    U need more quantity of vegetables for palya than needed for sambar. All palyas go well with chapathi and as a side dish to rice wth sambar. We can also mx it with rice and eat.

    Ingredients

    Finely choppeed cabbage - 1 Kg
    Green chillies, finely chopped - 8 to 10
    Salt to taste
    Grated coconut - 1/2 cup
    chopped corriander to garnish

    Seasoning

    Oil - 2 table spoons
    mustard - a tsp
    gram dal - 2 tsp
    urad dal - 1 tsp
    curry leaves - few

    Method

    Heat the oil in a pan. add mustard and allow to splutter. Add the gram dal and urad dals and wait till they turn golden. Add curry leaves and chillies and saute for a minute. Add the cabbage and mix well. Cover the pan and cook on a medium heat, stirring in between. Sprinkle some water everytime so that the vegetable doesnt burn. Remember not to add more water as the this is a dry recipe. To quicken the cooking u can sprinkle some water in between. Once the cabbage is half done add salt. Cover and cook, till the cabbage is cooked completely. Now add grated coconut and chopped corriander and turn off the fire.



    Notes

    Instead of green chillies u can add the vangeebath powder i have given in the thread as spice, to palyas made from cabbage, cluster beans, beans and brinjal.
