I have subscribed to vaah chef recipes! And this week i received a mail . The recipe was green tomato puliyodharai! I hadn’t heard about such recipe before and nor i have tasted green tomatoes !
I thought i should try the recipe soon and luckily i found green tomatoes in the nearby shop and picked up 1/2 kg! It was 27 bucks! Quite expensive! Nevertheless i had to try this!
I wanted to try this the OPOS way but i didn’t know how these green tomatoes taste or behave so i had to do it normally to see if i like it or not!
RECIPE COURTESY : VAAH CHEF SANJAY THUMMA
So here is what i did!
Chopped 4 tomatoes ! Chopped each tomato into 6 pieces ! That size !
In a kadai , added 3 tbsp groundnut oil , 1/2 tsp mustard , 4 chopped dry red chillies, 1 tsp urad dal , 1 tsp channa dal , 1/2 tsp jeera , 2 sprigs curry leaves , 1 slit green chilli and saute well ! Add 1/2 tsp turmeric powder and 1/8 tsp asafoetida and saute for 2 minutes ! Add 1.5 tsp salt .
Now mix 2 tbsp tamarind paste with 1/2 cup water and add it to the kadai ! Or 1/2 cup tamarind water made from a lemon sized tanarind and let it boil .
Add 2 tbsp coarsely ground peanuts to this and cook till it thickens.
After it thickens add the tomatoes and cook in such a way that it’s cooked but it’s not soft! You should see whole pieces! It shouldn’t become mushy! It should be crunchy!
Cooked yet crunchy tomatoes below!
Now take 2.5 cups of cooled cooked rice and mix it to this tomato paste!
I used measuring cups 1 cup = 240/250 ml
Yummiest puliyogara ready!!

Lipsmacking puliyodharai ready!!! I am gonna make it regularly!!
