100th post....Allam Pulusu...My Mom's Favourite Dish

Yipppeeee.....This is my 100th post in my blog...Very Happy to make it and even more happy as I'm posting my mom's fav dish..I want to dedicate this post to my mom and share this recipe for Mom's most favourite recipe event by Shama in her blog EASY2COOK RECIPES. My mom is my 1st best friend..I love to be with her and love calling her with her name Sobha Rani in my own style...
Allam Pulusu is a healthy dish in my view..when I was a kid I never used to eat garlic or ginger if I see them in the dish but this pulusu is my favourite too as I love minapa vadiyalu in this dish and cannot resist myself in having them.Ginger cannot be seen in the dish as they r chopped finely so Kids who dont like ginger can also have this dish.
Ingridents:
Onion:1/2(diced)
Tamrind Juice:Extracted 4m a lemon size of tamrind ball
Minapa Vadiyaalu:Fistful(Shallow fry in oil and put aside)
Jaggery/Sugar:1/4 spn(Optional)
Chopped Ginger:2 spns
Crushed Garlic Pods:3
Green Chillies:4-5
Cumin seeds:1 spn
Mustard Seeds:3/4 spn
Urad dal:1 spn
Curry leaves:8-10
Turmeric powder:1/2 spn
Tamrind Juice:Extracted 4m a lemon size of tamrind ball
Hinge:A pinch
Oil:3 spns
Rice Flour:1 spn(Mix it in 2-3 spns of water to make a smooth paste with no lumps)
Chopped Cilantro:2 spns
Procedure:
1.Heat a pan on flame and add oil when hot add cumin seeds and when the splatter add urad dal,mustard seed and fry till they pop,now add hinge and fry for a minute,now add the crushed garlic and chopped ginger fry till the raw flavor is removed,now add the green chillies,curry leaves and diced onions,fry till the onions become transculate.
2.When the onions turn smooth n transculate add tamrind juice,salt.turmeric powder and stir well and give it a boil,now add sugar/jaggery just to avoid the sour taste of tamrind,boil it till the raw flavor of tamrind juice is removed.It takes nearly 8-10 mins for this to boil completely.
3.Now add the rice flour paste,check for the seasonings and stir well and let it boil for another 5 mins and finally add few cilantro.
4.When u are about to serve add the shallow fried minapa vadiyalu and wait for 10 mins so that the vadiyalu absorbs the juice and become smooth.
Serve it with hot rice.
Tips:
1.U can even use tamrind paste to make this allam pulusu but fresh Tamrind juice makes the dish more tastier.
2.Avoid adding minapa vadiyalu when u have lot of time to serve as they get mashed up if the stay in pulusu for long time.

The flavor of chopped ginger and crushed garlic is always refreshing..Isnt it..When I make this I eat all the rice only with this pulusu. :P
