Dry Nightshade Berries & Potato Gravy/Manathakkali Vathal Urulai Kuzhambu

Most of my buddies and followers left comments asking about the new name of my space, yep guys its been a while i want to change the name of my space. Finally i changed it before few days,hope you guys like it. Also am trying to finish my header with some recipe clicks,but its quite a tough task for me.Will get my header soon hopefully,till that please bear with my simple header..

Coming to this kuzhambu, its one of our family favourite, comforting food for us. Serve me this kuzhambu with papads,i can have it anytime of the day. Am so crazy of this yummy tangy gravy, my mom passed me some of this dry nightshade berries some days before, while going through my space i was bit shocked to see that my favourite gravy with this dry nightshade berries is missing. Prepared it again yesterday with some potatoes and served everyone at home with hard boiled eggs and fryums..Gingelly oil gives more flavourful to this tangy gravy,you can add brinjals,bhindis to the gravy in case you dont want to add potatoes..Sending to my own event Healthy Vegetarian Side Dish guest hosted by Vardhini..


1/4cup Manathakkali vathals/Dry nightshade berries
2nos Potatoes (cubed)
1cup Tamarind juice
1no Onion (big & diced)
2nos Tomatoes (chopped)
7nos Garlic cloves
Few curry leaves
1tsp Chilly powder
1tbsp Coriander powder
1/2tsp Pepper powder
1/2tsp Cumin ppowder
1tsp Mustard seeds +fenugreek seeds
1/2tsp Ajwain seeds
1/2cup Gingelly oil
Salt

Heat gingelly oil in a heavy bottomed pan, fry the mustard seeds,fenugreek seeds,ajwain seeds and curry leaves ,now add the dry nightshade berries and garlic cloves and fry until they turns brown, add immediately the diced onions,chopped tomatoes and cook until the onions turns transculent and tomatoes turns mushy..

Add the chilly powder,coriander powder,pepper powder,cumin powder,salt to the tamarind juice and finally add this spiced tamarind juice to the cooking veggies..

Bring everything to boil now add the cubed potatoes, cook everything in simmer until the oil gets separates,the gravy constitency should be bit thick..

Serve hot with hot steaming rice and papads..
