Recipe
1
Soak 50 grams of tamarind in 250 ml of warm water for 15 minutes. Squeeze the tamarind to extract the pulp and strain it to remove any seeds or fibers. Set the tamarind water aside.
2
Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a pan over medium heat. Add 1 teaspoon of mustard seeds, 1 teaspoon of cumin seeds, and a pinch of asafoetida. Allow the seeds to splutter.
3
Add 1 finely chopped onion, 2-3 green chilies (slit), and a few curry leaves. Sauté until the onions turn translucent.
4
Add 1 chopped tomato and cook until it turns soft and mushy.
5
Add 500 grams of mixed vegetables (such as okra, drumsticks, eggplant, and pumpkin) and sauté for 5 minutes.
6
Pour the tamarind water into the pan and add 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder, 1 teaspoon of red chili powder, and salt to taste. Mix well and bring the mixture to a boil.
7
Lower the heat and let the pulusu simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until the vegetables are cooked and the flavors have melded together.
8
In a separate pan, dry roast 1 tablespoon of fenugreek seeds, 1 tablespoon of coriander seeds, and 1 tablespoon of cumin seeds until fragrant. Grind the roasted spices into a fine powder and add it to the pulusu. Mix well and cook for another 5 minutes.
9
Garnish with chopped coriander leaves and serve hot with steamed rice.
