    thank you

    Dear Prathi,

    Do we have someone from Udupi & Mangalore areas? they shld be knowing it.
    I feel it must be the same what Vidya has mentioned.
    Its a speciality of the coastal area.
    let's see if Vidya can get it.

    Regards,

    Welcome

    Hello Dileesh,

    Welcome to IL. You will enjoy here. Also, your uppusaru recipe sounds really good. I had a recipe from one of my Karnataka friend which was very similar to this. She also added dill greens to it. Unfortunately, I have lost that recipe and will now try out your saru. Thanks for the same.

    Nice to have you aboard!

    Hello Kamla,

    Thanks for ur reply. Yes , your friend is right you can add dill greens,it will be more tasty.Instead of haramoong(hesarubele) you can also use blackeyepeas or alasandekalu.

    Hi Honeybee,

    This is a authenticated recipe of Karnataka.I learnt from my mother.Hope u enjoy it.

    Bas saaru



    Ingredients:

    Toordal(togaribele)-1/2cup

    Garlic-1 whole big(1/2 for roasting and 1/2required as raw)

    Tamarind-lemon size

    Coconut freshly grated-1/2cup

    Curryleaves(karibevu)-2sprig

    Sarinapudi-1tbsp



    For tadka:

    Ghee/oil-2tsp

    Onions finely chopped-2tsp

    Garlic cloves-4-5(as many as you wish)

    Mustard-1tsp





    Method:

    First cook dal and moong in a cooker with sufficiant water for 2 whistles,then leaveit to cool. Now roast 1/2 onion and 1/2 garlic along with skin, in a open flame on a hob with skewers.After roasting remove the skin and chop roughly.Now grind coconut,tamarind,1/2raw onion and garlic,1/2roasted onion and garlic,1tbsp of cooked dal and moong, sarinapudi into a fine paste by adding little water.Separate the water from cooked dal and moong and keep aside.Now put tadka of ghee, mustard, onion ,garlic untill little black, then add grind masala to tadka and fry for 2 minutes, then add curryleaves along with stem(this gives nice aroma to saaru).After 2 minutes add dalwater and allow to boil for 10minutes in sim flame, add salt to taste. Boil for 2minutes(don't over boil)now it is ready to enjoy with ragimudde or rice.

    For cooked dal and moong mixture put tadka of oil, mustard, red chillies,little onion and fresh coconut,serve as a side dish to bas saaru.
