Vazhaipoo Paruppu Urundal Kuzhambu/Banana Blossom Dumplings Gravy

I have prepared this tangy gravy few days back with Steam cooked banana blossom dumplings, this gravy tastes awesome with hot steaming rice and papads or either with hard boiled eggs, actually these dumplings can be enjoyed with any hot sauce for snacks, since i finished them more than as i expected i was pulled to make some gravy with those leftover dumplings, i dont regret for making this gravy with those dumplings coz am a great fan of paruppu urundai kuzhambu and i can survive with this gravy for a week or more than that, yep these gravy tastes terribly awesome even after a day, which i prepared quite a different way from the usual tamarind based gravy, i used a grounded paste prepared with poppy seeds, peppercorns, shallots and coconut for making this gravy..Also needless to say how banana blossoms are healthy with numerous medicinal values, if quite advised to have atleast twice a month this healthy veggie as anything in our menu..Making this veggie as dumplings is quite definitely a best way to enjoy this healthy veggies.

Paruppu urundai kuzhambu

20nos Steam Cooked Banana Blossom Dumplings
1+1/2cups Tamarind extract
1tsp Red chilly powder
1tsp Coriander powder
1no Onion (cubed)
1no Tomato (big & juicy)

1tsp Mustardseeds, fenugreek seed & cumin seeds
Few curry leaves
Sesame oil
Salt

To grind:
1/4cup Grated coconut
1tsp Peppercorns
1tbsp Poppy seeds
5nos Shallots

Dry roast the poppy seeds and peppercorns until the aroma comes out, take these dry roasted seeds with grated coconut shallots and grind as fine paste along with water, keep aside..

Heat enough sesame oil, let splutters the mustard seeds, fenugreek seeds,curry leaves & cumin seeds, add immediately the cubed onions, crushed garlic cloves and chopped tomatoes,sauté everything until the onions turns transculent, add the grounded paste and cook in low flame until the oil gets separates, now add the tamarind extract, red chilly powder and coriander powder along with salt and cook the gravy with lid closed until the oil gets separates...finally add the already prepared dumplings cook in simmer for 5minutes and put off the stove..
