Val Papdi-Surti Papdi Curry..

This is a super simple and yet very tasty curry that I'd learnt from a friend of mine.
So here it is..


Val Papdi - 1 cup
Surti Papdi - 1 cup
Chana Dal - 1 tsp
Udad Dal - 1 tsp
Jeera/Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Garlic Cloves - 4, crushed and finely sliced
Red Chilli powder - 1/2 tsp or more, depending on your choice
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Tamarind pulp - 1 tsp
Mustard Seeds - 1 tsp
Curry leaves - 4-5 ( I did not add them )
Salt - to taste


- In a pressure cooker, add the surti and val papdi with enough water and salt and cook for 1 whistle. Keep aside till the pressure subsides from the cooker.
- In a wide pan, take little oil, when hot add the mustard seeds, udad dal, chana dal, cumin seeds, garlic and curry leaves. When the seeds have stopped spluttering and the dals turn light brown, add the boiled Surti & Val papdi to the pan.
- Now, add the turmeric and chilli powder and mix everything well.
- Add the tamarind pulp and mix well and cook till any water present evaporates and the mixture becomes dry.
- Serve hot as a side with rice and dal/any other curry.
