On days that I miss home, I need to get me an immediate fix of nostalgia – a taste of mom’s typical dishes. This is one of those…as soon as as I grind mustard seeds and coconut..the fragrance takes me home…
recipe serves 2
Raw/green tomatoes – 4 medium
Onions – 2 medium
Mustard seeds – 1teaspoon
Coconut – 1/2 cup (grated or coarsely ground)
Red chillies – 2
Curd – 1 cup (should not be sour curd)
Salt – to taste
1. Dry grind mustard seeds first.
2. Add coconut and red chillies and grind further coarsely (instead of water, use some of the curd to grind)
3. In a bowl, put together finely chopped onions and green tomatoes, add the above mix and salt.
4. Mix and add more curd to enhance consistency to that of a gravy
Temper with mustard seeds, udad dal, curry leaves in oil
This goes very well with spicy rice pulav, ragi rotis, steamed white rice
