This is a recipe from the state of Kerala. Rich in protein, kadala curry makes an excellent accompaniment to puttu, idli & dosa. But, I like it with rice. With the richness & aroma of coconut, it goes very well with basmati rice. Try it. The quantity I have given here is enough for 2 servings. Adjust spice level to your taste.

What you will need

Grated coconut 1/2 cup

Brown chickpea 1/4 cup, soaked overnight

8 curry leaves

6 dried red chillies

4 cloves of garlic

1 piece ginger

1 Onion, medium sized

1 tomato, medium sized

1 green chili

Coconut oil
