Molag Varutha Puli

At times, when my family is in a mood for lite dinner or lunch, but not bread and soup, or rasam and rice, we make this. This again is something passed on to me from Ammamma through Amma. A very watery dish, usually had with rice and maanthal varuthath( dry sol fish fry) or kaya chaena upperi/mezhukkupuratty( a dry preparation of raw banana and elephant yam).Here goes the quick and easy recipe. Do try with boiled rice and the suggested accompaniment .

We need:-

  1. Tamarind.. about 50 grams.
  2. Water 4 to 5 cups.
  3. Shallots 5to 6 numbers or a medium sized Onion...finely chopped.
  4. Dried red chillies..4 to 5 cut into bits
  5. Mustard seeds...1 tsp
  6. Fenugreek seeds..a pinch
  7. Curry leaves..2 sprigs
  8. Salt to taste
  9. Oil..1 tsp


Soak the tamarind in water and squeeze out the juice completely and make tamarind water of it. Heat a kadai, pour the oil, splutter mustard seeds, add the redchilly pieces and fenugreek seeds, and then curry leaves and chopped shallots/onion. fry for a minute, pour the tamarind water and boil thoroughly for 10 minutes, add salt to taste. Our Molagu varutha puli is ready.We can have some boiled rice with some dried fish fry or banana and yam dry preparation . A must least for those who like light. valluvanadan meal
