I like the combination of palak & kulithu. 2 healthy ingredients makes this dish delightful on a cold autumn evening.
6 oz Kulithu (Horse gram)
1 bunch fresh spinach
1/2-3/4 cup kook (Chinese potato)
1 cup fresh grated coconut
6 dried red chillies, roasted
marble size tamarind
5-6 cloves garlic
How it's made:
Wash & pressure cook horse gram. Clean & roughly chop spinach. Grind coconut along with red chillies and tamarind with a little water to a fine paste.
In a heavy bottom pot, add cooked horse gram, spinach, Chinese potato and salt to taste. Cook for 5 mins. Add ground masala. Boil for 10 mins.
In a "phana davlo"or skillet, heat oil. Add peeled crushed garlic cloves. Fry until light brown and season it to the curry. Serve hot with plain white rice and dalitoy.
Chinese potato can be substituted with kadgi (jack fruit).
