A special thokku from Tanjore brahmins, which is good for the sunny season, removes stomach burns and makes body cool and makes digestion very easy, as it has Gingelly oil and Asafoetida too.
Out Tanjore Method : Saute, 1 tsp of Pepper, 2 tsp of Tur Dal, 3 Red Chillies, 1 tsp of Asafoetida, 1/2 inch Tamarind, 1 cup of Curry leaves one by one in oil and allow to cool. Add sea salt and turmeric powder to it and grind to fine paste. In a kadai add 4 tsp of gingelly oil and add the grinded paste and make it to a thick paste, until water is fully absorbed and oil floats.... Your traditional / authentic Curry Leaves aka Karuveppillai Thokku is ready to serve with Plain rice, Curd Rice, etc.
