Sindhi curry recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Sindhi  |  Recipe Category: Lunch
Prep Time: 15 mins    |  Cook time: 25 mins    Serves: 3

Ingredients

Tomato, medium sized - 4

Besan flour - 1 & 1/2 tblsp

Drumstick - 1

Radish - 1/2

Cluster beans - 10

Ladies finger - 10

Ginger, finely chopped - 1 tblsp

Green chilli - 2

Red chilli powder - 1 & 1/2 tsp

Turmeric - 1/8 tsp

Tamarind pulp - 2 tblsp


To temper

Oil - 2 tblsp

Mustard - 3/4 tsp

Fenugreek seeds - 1/2 tsp

Cumin/ Jeera - 1 tsp

Asafoetida/ Hing - 1 pinch

Curry leaves - A sprig


Method

  1. Scrap the drumstick skin slightly, cut into finger length pieces. Peel and cube radish. Cut cluster beans also same length as drumstick. Cut the head and tail of ladies finger and slit slightly in the middle. Keep all the other ingredients ready.  Boil radish and drumstick in a vessel.
  2. 1-ingredients 
  3. Chop tomatoes roughly. Grind it to make puree.
  4. 2-puree
  5. Heat kadai and sauté ladies finger in medium flame for 2 minutes. Add cluster beans to it and fry both of them with out changing its color until soft. Be generous with oil. Keep aside and temper with the items given under 'To temper' table.
  6. 3-temper
  7. Keep little water ready. Lower the flame completely. Add besan and give quick stir. Make sure not to burn it, but the raw smell should go off and besan should turn golden colour. 
  8. 4-besan
  9. Add red chilli powder and turmeric, give it a quick stir. Add water to prevent burning. Just a little.
  10. 5-spice
  11. Add tomato puree, salt and mix well. Close the kadai with a lid as it splutters a lot. 
  12. 6-add
  13. Cook it stirring now and then until it becomes thick paste and oil floats. Now add the sautéed vegetables, cooked vegetables along with the water and add another 1 & 1/2 cups water and mix well. Check for salt. Boil it.
  14. 7-fry
  15. When it starts to boil, add tamarind pulp (I used 1 tsp tamarind paste) and boil until the veggies get cooked and the gravy becomes thick.
  16. 8-gravy

Notes

    • Sauteing cluster beans and ladies finger is important.
    • Cooking drumstick and radish separately is optional and you can cook along the gravy itself, but I wanted to make sure it done soon.
    • Some add potato too, but I didn’t add.
    • You can add a 1/4 tsp of sugar  or jaggery for enhancing the taste.

Serve with steamed rice, aloo took and papad. Smells and tastes great!

  31. I am going to try this ! Tomato and tamarind together.. you have my undivided attention!
    I do have a question:

    Can I use canned diced tomato, if yes, how much? (winter tomatoes are so tasteless, to get good taste, I'm afraid, I need to use canned)

    1. Hi, I am not sure about the canned tomatoes quantiy. My be 1 and a 1/2 or 2 will be working.

      Delete
  32. I cant stand the pungent flavor that emits from tomatoes which chopping or even for eating, but i just wanted to give this version a try and i was doubtful till the end if it would turn out gud? will it be ok for my family members tastebuds, but gr8 it turned out well unexpected, the tamrind, and tomato combo was gud i made more in quantity by adding lil more besan than suggested here, but i guess dry roasting the besan ahead seperatly would be much better as i found it difficult to roast the besan in the oil seasoning itself it became kind of lumps when aded to seasoning oil, i just wanted to share this part, so that new learners mite not get panic over the situation :) keep updating more ive been trying manythings from ur blog occasionally cheers~! for the hard work

  33. I am going to trying this recipe! Tomato and tamarind together. I do have a question. Can I use the canned tomato? I am waiting for your response. Thanks.

    1. Fresh tomato works best. Canned ones is too acidic for this one as already tamarind is there
