Recipe
1
Soak 250 grams of horse gram (ulavalu) overnight in water.
2
The next day, pressure cook the soaked horse gram with 1 litre of water for about 6-7 whistles or until it is soft and mushy.
3
Once the pressure is released, strain the cooked horse gram and keep the water aside. This water is the horse gram stock which is used to make Ulava Charu.
4
Grind the cooked horse gram into a smooth paste and keep it aside.
5
In a pan, heat 2 tablespoons of oil. Add 1 teaspoon of mustard seeds, 1 teaspoon of cumin seeds, 2 dry red chillies, and a few curry leaves. Saute until they splutter.
6
Add 1 finely chopped onion and saute until it turns golden brown.
7
Add 1 teaspoon of ginger-garlic paste and saute until the raw smell goes away.
8
Add 2 finely chopped tomatoes and cook until they turn mushy.
9
Add the horse gram paste, horse gram stock, salt to taste, 1 teaspoon of red chilli powder, and 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder. Mix well and bring it to a boil.
10
Simmer for about 20-30 minutes until the soup thickens.
11
Finally, add 1 tablespoon of jaggery and 2 tablespoons of tamarind pulp. Mix well and cook for another 5 minutes.
12
Garnish with fresh coriander leaves and serve hot with rice or roti.
