RM#2 : Day 9 Peanut Kuzhambu (Kadalai Kuzhambu)

I normally prepare this Peanut Kuzhambu when I am bored and we seem to be needing a change in food. And also when I am short of fresh veg. We all like this for Rice. The kuzhambu and crunchiness of peanuts go together very well.

Peanut Kuzhambu
Ingredients
Peanuts - 1/2 cup
(soaked the previous night and pressure cooked with little salt till it becomes soft)
Chopped Onion - 1 big
Chopped Garlic - 5 to 6
Tomato - 1
Thick Tamarind extract - 3 to 4 tb.sp
(soak the tamarind in water, take a thick extract of it)
Sambar Powder - 2 tb.sp
Salt to taste
Oil
Freshly grated Coconut - 2 tb.sp
Cumin seeds - 11/2 t.sp

For tempering
Mustard seeds - 1 t.sp
Urad dal - 1 t.sp
Fenugreek seed - 1/2 t.sp
Asafoetida - 1/2 t.sp
Curry Leaves


Method
Heat oil in Kadai. Add all the items given tempering. Once the crackling of the curry leaves has stopped add the chopped onion and garlic. Saute for a minute or two. Then add the chopped tomatoes. Cook till the tomatoes have become soft. Add sambhar powder and salt. Add a little water, tamarind extract and cooked peanuts. Cover and cook for about 10 min. stirring in between. Grind the coconut and cumin seeds and add to the kuzhambu. Serve hot with rice.
