Alasande kaalu badanekayi palya and CMT Kathol round up

It is time to the round up of CMT-Kathol. before I summarise the entries, I would like to thank everyone who took out some time to cook something relevant to this event and send it. I had made alasande kaalu (black eyed peas) badanekayi (brinjal) palya. Brinjal compliments almost all types of peas. You can just replace black eyed peas with any kind of kaalu or peas.  It is simple with minimum ingredients and easy to make too.

Alasande Kaalu Badanekayi Palya:

Cooked Alasande Kallu/Cooked black eye peas: 1 cup
Brinjal : 2 (medium sized)
Green chilli paste: as required
Ginger as required (optional)

Oggarane: Oil, mustard, Uddinabele/chanadal, redchillies, curry leaves, asafoetida

1. Cook brinjal and alasande kaalu in pressure cooker and set it aside.
2. Cut brinjals into small pieces
3. Heat oil  in a pan, add mustard. When mustard stops popping add asafoetida powder and uddinabele. When bele turns brown add curry leaf, redchillies and fry for a fraction of a second. Add in brinjals.
4.Mix well, cover and cook till brinjals are soft. When brinjals are mushy, mash them. Add ginger, green chilli paste, alasande kaalu, salt and mix well. Warm the mixture and taste to adjust the seasonings. Serve when it is warm.

Hi Lakshmi,
Is there typing error or what your first step in Alsande kalu badanekayi palya has brinjal to be boiled with Kalu in the next step you are asking it to be cut ...I am confused please clarify this....

Lakshmi said...

The order of writing is changed. Cut brinjals and then cook them with alasandekaalu. Thanks for pointing it out.
