Okra Tomato Gravy N Click-Wood

My Mom used to prepare once a week this delicious gravy with okra n tomatoes (pureed) with gingelly oil , this gravy will ressembles quite like Peppercorns n Cuminseed gravy well know as Milagu Jeerage Kuzhambu..This gravy stays for a week n they will tastes divine after a day..after few more days, no need to say how they will taste, usually we finish this gravy with three days as we love this delicious tangy gravy like anything..this kuzhambu tastes too good with hot steaming rice n papads, for non vegetarian people boiled eggs goes prefect for this gravy r simply with an omelette,i dedicate this delicious tomato gravy with okra to my brother, who is die hard fan of this delicious gravy.


10nos Okra(cut as big pieces)
1cup Tamarind extract
2nos Tomatoes(pureed)
5nos Shallots
3nos Garlic Cloves
1tsp Pepper powder
1tsp Coriander powder
1/2tsp Red chilly powder
1/4tsp Cumin seed powder
1/4cup Gingelly oil
1tsp Mustard seeds+Fenugreek seeds+Urad dal
5nos Curry leaves
Salt

Heat the gingelly oil in a kadai, add the mustard seeds, fenugreek seeds, uraddal n let them splutters..add the whole shallots,curry leaves, garlic cloves n stir fry until the shallots turns transculent, add the okra pieces n stir for few minutes, add the tamarind juice, pureed tomatoes with pepper powder, cumin seed powder, coriander powder, red chill powder with enough salt.. bring the gravy to boil n cook until the oil gets separated..put off the stove..

Serve hot with rice n papads!!
