Vendakkai Ellu Pachadi
Traditional dish learned from my mother.
Vendakkai (ladies finger). - 200 gms
Tamarind - small lemon size
Small piece of vellam
Oil for garnishing and salt to taste.
Ingredients for grinding.
Ellu. - 1 table spoon
Coriander seeds - 1 teaspoon
Uluthamparuppu - 1/2 teaspoon
Kadalaparuppu - 1/2 teaspoon
Red chillies - 6 nos
Coconut - 1 cup grated

Fry the Ellu in a Kadai without oil till it splutter and keep aside. Fry the other ingredients except cocunut in a Kadai with a little oil. When the ingredients are slight brown add the coconut and fry it fora minute. When the roasted ingredients cools to the room temperature grind it by adding water and grind it to smooth paste.
Cut the vendakkai into small pieces. In a Kadai add a little oil till it is slightly fried, squeeze the soaked tamarind and add it to vendakkai. Add turmeric powder, vellam and salt. Boil it till the vendakkai gets cooked and the pachai smell of the tamarind goes. Add the ground paste to the vendakkai, cook for 2minutes. Add water to make the pachadi to the correct consistency of gravy and boil for 2 minutes. Kaduku uluthamparuppu porichu kottavum. Garnish with karuveppilai and kothamalli Elai.
