Tangy Vadiyala pulusu.

Do you remember which was your favorite recipe when you were a child.? Which recipe you enjoyed the most? My favorite recipes change according to the season.
In summer I enjoy recipes made of Mango like Mango Dal, Mango rasam, Mango pulihora (made with rice), vadiyalu, majjiga charu (made of yogurt) , pacchi pulusu

One of the recipes I love is vadiyala charu. It is very easy to make. I have seen only my parent-generation making this dish. May be our tastes changed due to globalisation. We tend to forget our good old recipes which our parents, grand-parents used to make. These have less calories as compared to the ones which we are eating and good for health.

For Vadiyala pulusu:

  • 2 onions.
  • One tomato.
  • Tamarid size of a small lemon (Soak it in water for 10mins).
  • Vadiyalu (Fry them in oil).
  • Jaggery or sugar (I prefer Jaggery)

For seasoning:
  • Cumin seeds ( Jeera ) : half teaspoon
  • Mustard seeds ( Rai ) : half teaspoon
  • Asafoetida ( Hing ) : half teaspoon
  • Red chillies : 2 broken into half
  • Curry leaves
  • Dry Red chillies.
  • Oil for making tadka.
  • Salt to taste.
  • Turmeric powder.
  • Cut onions into very small pieces.Fry them in Oil.Wait until they turn light brown/golden yellow.
  • Cut tomato into small pieces.
  • Add tomato pieces to fried onions.let tomato get soft.
  • Now add tamarind water to it.Let it simmer for few minutes.
  • Add Jaggery,salt,pinch of turmeric powder to the boiling liquid with low flame.
  • Now add Fried vadiyalu to it.
For tadka / seasoning :
  • Now for tadka heat some oil (spoon) add cummin seeds,mustard seeds.
  • Add curry leaves and dry Chillies to it and later add some asafoetida to it.

Pour this tadka / seasoning into the simmering liquid. Serve the recipe with rice.

Getting nostalgic!!!!!.
