Its always best to have ingredients ready before we actually start cooking. Wash the onions, green chillies, curry leaves , coriander and lemon.
1)Slice onion into long thin strands.
2)Cut the green chillies. Make sure not to slice these into very small pieces because you may end up eating them. Chillies are meant to give a spicy taste to the dish not to your tongue.
3)Coriander also need to be sliced.1 strand is more than enough. 1 strand will have many small strands in it.
4)You need to transfer Avalakki to a bowl and pour water into it. Drain excess water. Keep it aside for it to absorb the water.
1)Pour a tsp of cooking oil to the vessel , turn on the stove. There is one thing that is very common in most of our Indian recipes, use of oil and mustard seeds.
2)After few seconds put half tsp of mustard seeds. You will observe that the seeds slowly get fried.
3)Add urad dal, bengal gram and curry leaves. After few seconds add onion pieces as well as green chillies. Wait till the sliced onion pieces get a little brownish color.
4)Now add tomatoes. Its better to slice the tomato into small pieces and then add them into the pan .
5)Add turmeric powder(half teaspoon) to give a yellowish color to the dish and also to kill any germs that would be in the vegetables, if any.
6)Add the required amount of salt.
7)The Avalakki would be a litte wet and soft by now. So finally pour in this to the pan. Close the lid for it to be cooked completely for a while. Say, 5 to 10 minutes.
Enjoy your dish! :)
