Back to blogging after a very loooong time!

Hi Friends,

How are you all doing? I'm so excited to resume my blogging after a very long gap.

In this post I would like to write about a simple recipe - "Kosumalli". Its a side dish that goes well with idly, dosai and idiyappam.

Egg plant - 3
Potato - 1
Onion - 1/2 chopped
Tomato - 1 chopped
Tamarind paste - little
Green chilli - 2
Coriander leaves
Mustard seeds

  • Cut the egg plant into 2 halves and potatoes into small cubes and pressure cook the eggplant and potatoes with water(until it just soaks everything) to 2 whistles
  • After letting off the steam, mash the ingredients in the cooker
  • In a separate pan, heat oil, splutter mustard seeds, add onion and tomatoes and saute well
  • Add this sauted mixture to the ingredients in the cooker and add water to the required consistency and add tamarind paste and salt to this and let it boil
  • When it boils, add minced coriander leaves
