How to make Seppankilangu puli kulambu
Wash and make sharp inserts into the arbi. Microwave for 10 mins, check if the arbi is soft, else microwave for another 3 -5 mins. Allow to cool, peel the skin, and cut into cubes.
Heat a Kadai with oil. Add the mustard seeds, urad dal, curry leaves, and chopped garlic. Fry for a couple of minutes, then add finely chopped onions. Saute till the onion turns brown.
Next add finely chopped tomatoes, along with salt, turmeric. chili powder, coriander powder. Cover with lid and cook in sim for 10 mins for the tomatoes to be done well.
Once the tomatoes are soft, add the cooked arbi, saute well and again cook for 5 mins in high. Simmer with lid covered for 2 mins.
Add the tamarind juice, mix everything. Then add water, combine all the ingredients. Bring to boil. Cook in high for 5 mins. Then simmer for 10 mins with lid covered till the gravy is thick.
Arbi is mostly considered to get itchy reaction sometimes. To prevent this, the roots are normally boiled with tamarind juice. I normally don't follow this method.
Normally salt and turmeric powder is added to the tomatoes to get them cooked fast. I added all the spice powders along with salt and simmered with lid covered for 10 mins.
