Instructions

  • Crush together small onion and garlic. Clean and trim the ends of achinga and cut into 1 inch long pieces.
  • Heat oil in a pan and crackle the mustard seeds and add curry leaves. Add crushed small onion and garlic. Fry it for 2-3 mins, till the raw smell goes and onion starts browning. Add chilli powder and salt. Fry for a min or so. Add coconut bits (if using) and mix well. Add achinga and mix well. Sprinkle water and cover and cook for 5-7 mins, till it becomes soft.

Notes

Though I've mentioned 1/4 cup water, you can start with 1-2 tbsp water and see. If it's not enough add more water later on.
The cooking time can vary from 5-10 mins. Closely watch it after 5 mins of cooking..
Also, I've mentioned coconut bits is optional, but if you like thengakothu, I strongly recommend it.

  1. Hi Maria,

    Nice recipe :-) But I was looking at your pan all the time. Is it an iron pan? Like our irumbu cheenachatti back in Kerala.

    Luv,
    Lakshmi.
