Vazhakaai poriyal

This is one of those easiest spicy fast dishes....Love 'em for the quickness and the taste that goes with the veggie..as such hubby dear is a lover of Vazhakaai...so anything prepared with it vanishes as soon as it was done :) wat else cud make me more happier than Mr.K loving wat i prepare :D

  • Vazhakaai - 1
  • Turmeric pdr - 1/4 tsp
  • Salt - as req
  • Oil
  • Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
  • Curry leaves
  • Urad dhal - 1 tsp
  • Channa dhal - 1 tsp
  • red chilli - 1
  • Onion - 1 small
  • Grated coconut - 1 tbsp (opt)


Peel the vazhakaai and cut it into small cubes. Boil the cubes in water. Add turmeric pdr and salt to the water. Once vazhakaai cooks, switch off the flame and set it aside.
In a pan, heat oil. Add mustard seeds + curry leaves + urad dhal + channa dhal + red chilli . Once the seeds splutter and the dhal have changed into golden brown color add onions and saute them. Add the boiled vazhakaai now and mix all the ingredients well. Add some grated coconut(optional) and adjust the salt as necessary.
