Pepper curry(Milagu kuzhambu)

This is a wonderful recipe . Pepper curry is a very spicy dish. We usually make this dish when the weather is a little nippy outside. Today as it started snowing outside, i made this to have with rice.This curry resembles a Puliogare paste. And it can be kept for 3-4 days. Ingredients:
  • 1 Tablespoon Pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon Coriander seed
  • 1 Tablespoon Tamarind paste
  • 2 Red chillies
  • 1 Tsp fenugreek
  • 1 Bulb Garlic sliced
  • Asafoetida
  • 2 Tbsp Sesame oil
  • Salt to taste.
Method:
Saute pepper, chilly and coriander seeds until they pop.
Remove from heat and make it into a paste. the paste should not be too fine .(pepper emits a medicinal flavor if it is ground too fine.)
Pour oil in a kadai , tamper with Fenugreek seeds.
Add the sliced garlic.
Now add the pepper- coriander paste.
Add the tamarind extract.
Add water according to desired thickness.
Add salt and asafoetida.
Let it simmer for 10- 15 minutes.(until the oil starts to float on top).

This curry is great with hot steamed rice. it can also be had with idly.
