I was told about this tambli or yoghurt based dish by my mom I googled it & came across this recipe.It is a coolant recipe for the hot summers.
I tried it & it came out well.I mean, no one can go wrong with this dish.Its so simply easy !
Method : Heat a wok or kadhai with 1 tsp oil.Add cumin seeds .When they splutter, add the peppercorns,Roast them for a minute .Add 8 sprigs of curry leaves by plucking out the leaves & discarding the stem.Put off the gas.Roast the curry leaves in the kadhai. Keep aside.Let this cool.
Take the yoghurt & add salt.Whisk the yoghurt with salt into a nice creamy buttermilk.Keep aside.
Take a blender. Add dessicated coconut, chopped green chilly, & the roasted cumin, peppercorns curry leaves mix.Blend into a paste by adding little water. Stop the blender. Scoop out the paste & add to the whisked salted buttermilk.Mix nicely. Keep aside.
Make a seasoning by heating oil in a kadhai.Add mustard seeds.After they splutter, add urad dal.They will turn golden brown.Add curry leaves & broken pieces of byadgi mirchi. Put off the gas.
Pour this seasoning ovr the whisked buttermilk to which the paste has been added.
The tambli is ready.Add to rice. Mix & enjoy.
Tips : My ground paste was grainy as I ground the ingredients in the dry grinder.I added some water & yet, the result was that the paste was grainy. I did this as the wet grinder attachment of my mixie is too big & the quantity of paste needed was too small.The dry grinder attachment of my mixie is comparatively smaller.
