Happy Independence Day


Green Gram Curry

A simple and healthy dish that goes well with both rice and rotis. We had it with steamed rice and poha mixture..


What you need:

Green grams or pesalu-1cup
Tomato-1 ripe and medium sized
Green chillys-2
Curry leaves-a few
Asafoetida or hing or inguva-1 pinch
Turmeric powder-a pinch
Chilly  powder-1/4 teaspoon
Salt to taste
Oil-1 tablespoon                                        
  1. Wash and soak the green gram for six hours or over night.
  2. Heat the oil in a pressure cooker and add the cut green chillys, curry leaves, asafoetida and cut tomato.
  3. Fry them on a low flame until they become soft.
  4. Add the soaked green gram, turmeric powder, chilly powder and salt.
  5. Stir it for two minutes and add two cups of water.
  6. Pressure cook it for 3-4 whistles and turn off the stove.
  7. Once the cooker stops releasing the pressure, open the lid and mash it. Cook it for one to two minutes on a low flame without the lid.
  8. Turn off the stove and serve it with steamed rice or rotis or chapathis..
Note: You can also add ginger garlic paste and cut onion while adding green chilly and curry leaves. I have already posted the recipe of poha mixture.
