Sundal Kuzhambu

     Its been a long time since i posted the recipe because of personal reasons and also rigorously searching a home as need to find it in a short while.Its really really difficult to find a home.So my mind is totally blocked and not able to concentrate on my blog.Not able to visit any blogs regularly.With this post i'm taking a break and will be back as early as possible but not sure when.
    Now coming to the recipe never heard about this Sundal Kuzhambu recipe until i got introduced to it by my friend Gayathri.She use to say this is very common in their house holds and will do it frequently.So thought of preparing it as my hubby always wants any kind of gravy for the rice.As i got bored with the routine gravy i did this one and it worked out great.So here goes the recipe.










Ingredients :

Chhole/Brown channa 3/4th cup(small cup)
Potato 2-3 medium size
Onion 1 big sized
Tomato 1 big sized
Ginger garlic paste 1/2 tsp
Red chillie powder 1/2-3/4 tsp
Salt Req


To Roast & Grind:

Grated coconut 2 tbsp
Dhania 1 tsp
Red chillies 3-4 nos
Cinnamon 1 inch piece
Cardomom 2 nos
Cloves 2 nos
Fennel seeds 1/4 tsp


Seasoning :

Oil 1 tbsp
Mustard seeds 1 tsp



Method :

1.   Roast and grind all the ingredients given under to grind column.Boil the potato and keep it separately.








2.    In a wok pour the oil and do the seasoning.Then add the onions and fry till transparent.









3.     Now add the chopped tomato and fry till mushy.










4.    Now add the ground paste and fry till the oil oozes out and water content is absorbed.









5.     Now add the potato,enough water,salt and allow the gravy to boil nicely for around 20 mins so that the channa absorbs masala very well.Check the spicy at this stage.









6.     Now the gravy is ready to serve.








Notes :

1.   Should not add the water now and then to the gravy.Begining itself have to add enough water and have to boil nicely.

2.    Adjust the tomato according to the taste.
