Pumpkin Channa Buttermilk Gravy/More kuzhambu

      This is one of my favourite recipe and is very easy and simple to prepare.This recipe i got from my mom and she prepares in a good manner.

Ingredients :

White Pumpkin 250gm
Kabuli channa 75-100 gms
Sour curd(2-3days old) 3/4th cup
Salt Req
Water Req

Grinding :

Grated coconut 2 tbsp
Roasted gram 1 1/2-2 tbsp
Green chillies 3-4 nos
Cumin seeds 1/2 - 3/4 tsp
Turmeric powder 1/8 tsp

Seasoning :

Mustard seeds 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves Few

Method :

1.Soak channa overnight and peel the pumpkin skin and boil channa and pumpkin(I boiled pumpkin and channa together with the rice).Churn the curd to buttermilk.

2.Grind the items given under the grinding column.

3.Now take a kadai and season with the items given under the seasoning column.Then add the buttermilk and boiled veggies.

4.Now add the grounded paste and salt.If necessary add water also.

5.Once the gravy boils nicely put off the flame and serve with hot rice.

Notes :

1.If the gravy becomes watery,powder the roasted gram and dilute in water so that no lumps are there and add to the gravy.

2.Can use any  veggies of our choice.Carrot,beans,green leaves(keerai),ladies finger.But ladies finger and green leaves are good.But the above said pumpkina and channa are the best combo.
