Toor Dal/Thuvara Parippu-1/2cup
Water-1 1/2 cup
Grated Coconut-1/2 of one
Curry leaves-2 strings
Dry red chilli-2
Wash and cook dal by adding water along with salt,chilli powder ,turmeric powder and 1 string of curry leaves..
After 1 whistle remove from the fire and allow to cool ..
Then open the cooker and add medium sized pumpkin pieces ..Mix well ..
Cook again ..1 whistle is enough ..
By that time grind coconut ,cumin seeds and shallot along with small amount of water to a fine paste ..
Add this paste to the cooked dal-pumpkin and mix well..
Allow to boil for 10 minutes in low flame stirring occasionally ..
.. Check the salt ,if ur pumpkin is not sweet enough u can add 1 tsp of sugar into it .. (I used to add more than that 😉 )
Then its time to season the erisserry ..
For that heat oil and splutter mustard seeds ,then add dry red chilli splits and curry leaves ..
Pour over the erisserry and close the kadai for 5 minutes ..
Then mix well and serve with rice .. 🙂
Came out nice Veena,
(I didnt add sugar :-).
I’m not a good cook as you are but I do love my moms good and as per recipe everything is same except that my mom coconut at the last as seasoning as in after adding thre coconut grinder paste, she takes slight amount a table spoon or so grated coconut fries it till it’s golden brown and adds it to the mixture then adds the other set of season.
