Sodhi

    This recipe got introduced to me, almost 5 years back when i went for my marriage feast to my cousin's place. When i tasted it first, it completely had a very bland taste. Even though, it had very plain taste i was keeping on tasting (actually drinking) it. Since i was newly married and a beginner in cooking, i don't want to try this at home since it has sooooo many complicated process like extracting coconut milk in various forms. But now after such huge gap, i tried using canned coconut milk :P and here comes for your views.


ALL YOU NEED:
Thick Coconut Milk 1 cup
Thin Coconut Milk 1 1/2 cup
Mixed Vegetables 250 g
Coriander Leaf 2 Twigs
Chopped Tomato 1 No.
Turmeric Powder 2 Twigs
Sliced Onion 1 No.
Moong Dhall 1/2 cup
Green Chilly 3 Nos.
Curry Leaf 1 Twig
Ginger 1 inch
Garlic 4 Nos.
Mustard 1 spoon
Salt To Taste
Oil 1 spoon
METHOD:
     Heat a spoon of oil in a pan. Add mustard, once splutters, add smashed garlic, ginger, curry leaf, coriander leaf and slited green chillies. Saute well. Now add sliced onion, tomato, mixed vegetables (i used carrot, beans, potato and drumstick) and pinch of salt. Saute well, now pour the pressure cooked moong dhall, thin coconut milk and pinch of turmeric. Stir well by adding little amount of water if the mixture is very thick, cover the pan with lid. Let it be in flame until all veggies gets cooked. Keep stirring inbetween. Once all veggies are cooked, add the thick coconut milk, make sure the flame is in Low. Once the gravy bubbles up, put off the flame and serve hot with steamed rice, Ginger chutney and Potato Fry.

Note: This is my own try, will post the original "Tirunelveli Sodhi" shortly.
