Plain Gravy / Thin Gravy

Today’s 21/12/2016 Recipe : PLAIN / THIN GRAVY RECIPE

This I learnt from my sister some 20 years back while my athimber was working in Alibaug - Thal RCF sidings. Still the taste is on my mouth as well. Sometimes earlier I made this at home for roti / chappathi. Just while at office recalled the recipe had a free time for 15 mins to post this. 

Chopped 1 large Onion
Chopped 2 tomatoes
1/2 cup grated / Dry coconut
4-5 Garlic cloves
Finely chopped ginger ¾ inch
Red chili powder – 1 tsp
Coriander powder – 1 tsp
Cumin powder – ½ tsp
Turmeric powder – ½ tsp
Garam Masala – 1/ tsp
Coriander leaves – finely chopped 1 tsp
Sugar – ½ tsp
Oil – 3 tsp
Salt to taste

Thin Gravy Preparation : Heat 1 tbsp Oil in a pan and add chopped onions and fry until they turn slight golden brown in color. Add garlic and chopped ginger and fry for a couple of minutes. Add grated dry coconut and fry for 5 minutes until it turns brown. Add chopped tomatoes, coriander and cumin powder and fry until the tomatoes get mashed and form a pulpy mixture. Cool the mixture completely and grind to a very smooth paste. Heat 2 tsp Oil in a kadai and add ground paste and fry again for 2-3 mins and add add the powders and mix well. Now add 2 or 3 cups of water and boil for 10 minutes or until oil starts floating on the top. Now if you wish you can add Boiled Potatoes cut into ½ inch size into it and garnish with coriander leaves. This goes perfect with Pulka / Roti for those who are worried of cholesterol level / or totally afraid of health. Since this is only with little spicy, sometimes, this is served with plain rice also in south Indian Thali Meals.
