Kumbakonam Kadappa Recipe

     I  tasted kadappa first time in my hostel mess in Trichy. That time I used to hate that. Then once after marriage my MIL made I totally developed taste for it,may be the way she made it, changed my taste. Though she avoids fennel in her recipe,I tried adding fennel and bay leaves in addition to the way she makes and the result was really awesome! I just love the flavour and makes a great combo with idly. Hubby doesn't like fennel at all,so I avoid it most of the times, still will add whenever I get a chance…

Kumbakonam kadappa recipe

Indian Breakfast
Prep Time: 10 mins    |  Cook time: 25 mins    Serves: 4

Ingredients


Moong Dal/Paasi paruppu  1/4 cup 
Potato  2 
Onion  2 
Green Chillies  4 
Salt  As needed 
Lemon Juice  From 1/2 of a lemon 
Coconut oil(optional)  1 tsp,garnish 
Coriander leaves(optional)  For garnish 

To Grind

Coconut,grated 1/4 cup
Green chillies (Optional) 4
Fennel seeds/Saunf/Soambu 1 tsp
Garlic 2 flakes

To temper

Oil 1 tblsp
Cinnamon 1 piece
Bay leaf 1
Mustard 3/4 tsp
Curry leaves 1 sprig

Method

  1. Pressure cook potato and moong dal.Peel the potatoes,mash it and mash the moong dal too.
  2. Slice onion and green chillies.Grind coconut,fennel and garlic with water to a smooth paste.k0-horz
  3. Heat a pan with oil and temper with the items given under" ‘To temper’ table. Add onion,green chillies and fry until onion turns just transparent,do not let it change its colour.k1-horz
  4. Add 2 cups water,salt and boil for 3 minutes. Add the mashed dal and potatoes.Mix well, bring to boil.
  5. k2-horz
  6. Keep in low flame as after adding dal and potato it easy gets burnt at the bottom,so keep stirring. add the Ground masala,mix well and cook in low flame for 1 or two minutes.k4-horz

Notes

  • Add garlic only maximum two flakes,otherwise it will give different flavour. If you use bigger flake,just use one.
  • Instead of lemon juice,you can add 1 tomato in the recipe. Just fry after onion and proceed.
  • Instead of grinding garlic along with coconut you can crush it and fry along with onion too,just add 2 more garlic flake additionally.
  • Kadappa is usually white in colour in our mess,I too dint add any turmeric in the recipe, add turmeric if you like it.
                 Garnish with lemon juice,coconut oil and coriander leaves and serve with Idli or Dosai.

  7. Don't even remind me...in the whole of the two post graduate years in SRC (tricy, ammaangOv, adhe college), this was staple atleast thrice a week, if not more!
    Your post just made it sound something exotic...which the hostel caterer made a point to make as uninteresting as possible!

    1. May be your chilli is not spicy enough. Adding lemon juice is also a must to give the recipe a punch. So add more chilli and lemon juice next time if it is very bland for you.
