Kerala Kadala curry

    Kadala curry is one of the famous recipes in Kerala. It is served with puttu or Aapam. It also goes well with rotis or chappathis. Usually we make ishtu or Coconut chutney as an accompaniment for Aapam. And my chithappa suggested me that Aapam also tastes best with kadala curry. So this time I opted for this and made at home. Hot and Spicy 😛 😛 😛

INGREDIENTS

Black channa – 1 cup

Onion – 3

Star Anise – 1

Cinnamon – 1

Salt – to taste

Turmeric powder – A pinch

Red chilli powder – 2 tsp

Garam masala – 1 tsp

Coriander seed powder – 1 tsp
