PULI SAARU

Label :
Puli saaru
             This is a type of rasam,we make when we get bored of sambar and kuzhmbu and or some times we feel to have rice for dinner,yet we need it to be light meal and also easy to make. Puli saaru helps in these situations,I make this and just make a simple poriyal or just fry vadavams as side. Some call this Vendhaya Vengaya Rasam too…  So here’s a comfort dish,yet a flavorful,spicy one.   I never make this if I don’t have shallots.

Ingredients:

Tamarind Small gooseberry sized
Shallots/small onions 10 nos.
Tomato 1 medium sized
Green chillies 5-8 nos.
Coriander leaves chopped,1 tblsp(optional)
Sugar 1/4 tsp
Salt As needed

To Temper:(Don’t miss Anything)

Oil 3 tsp
fenugreek seeds 3/4 tsp
Mustard 3/4 tsp
Toor dal 1 tsp
Curry leaves 1 sprig
Asafetida powder 1/4 tsp

Method:

  1. Extract tamarind juice and mix 2 –  2& 1/ 2 cups of water and keep aside.
  2. Chop onions and cut tomatoes into cubes,slit the green chillies.
  3. Heat a pan with oil and temper with the tempering items,given in the table in the same order.
  4. DSC_0365
  5. Add onion and green chillies and fry till onions turn transparent.Add the tomatoes and fry for 2 mins in medium flame to make it soft.
  6. DSC_0366 DSC_0367
  7. Add the tamarind extract and salt,sugar and bring it to boil and let it boil for just 2 mins.
  8. DSC_0368 DSC_0370
  9. Transfer to the serving bowl and garnish with coriander leaves if desired.
Puli saaru
Note:

  • If you like asafetida smell you can add a pinch of raw powder, after u add  tamarind extract.The smell of asafetida is a plus for this
  • You can replace green chillies with red chillies and add it while tempering.

      1. Did you used enough green chillies and asafoetida? Coz you have to balance it otherwise only you will not get that raw smell. Try adding generous asafoetida and more chillies. Sure will help
