RM#2 : Day 8 Sothi (Side Dish for Idiyappam)

Sothi is a very famous South Indian Side Dish. It is very easy and quick to prepare it. It was one among the 1st dishes I made for about 20 guests first time after marriage. They were the 1st guests to our house, 20 of them at the same time. And I had conceived by then and was vomiting a lot. With all my vomitings I cooked the first guests of our house.
The menu on that day was Idiyappam with Sothi, sambhar, Veg. Cutlets, Kavuni Arisi. At that time it was too much for me (not a much experienced cook). Why I am doing all this blaa, blaa is to say that Sodhi is one of the easiest recipe I learnt.

Sodhi (Side Dish for Idiyappam)
Ingredients
2 Potatoes (medium sized)
Pressure cook the Potatoes and mash them.
1 cup Thick Coconut Milk
2 1/2 cup Diluted Coconut Milk
3 to 4 Green Chillies
Mustard Seed - 1/2 t.sp
1 tb.sp Lemon Juice
Salt to taste

Method

Heat about 1 t.sp oil in a kadai. Splutter the mustard seeds and add green chillies. Since I didn't have green chillies I had used 1 t.sp of Chilli Powder here. Add the diluted coconut milk. Add the mashed potatoes, salt and stir it. Let the mixture reach a boiling stage. Take the kadai away from the gas and add the thick coconut milk and lemon juice. Stir again and serve hot with Idiyappams.

So easy and so fast, isn't it.
