No onion no garlic recipes

kalyana-gothsu
Kalyana gothsu is a excellent side dish made for idli | dosa|pongal. Last june when we went attended wedding in India, i was so addicted to the gotsu they serve in the wedding. Though i have tasted this many times in weddings, never attempted to try at home. I was bit curious about the recipe and with the help of a mami, i could able to guess the ingredients and attempted at home. It tasted very similar to the Kalyana gotsu. I have clicked it long back but waiting to get published in Kungumam thozi. This recipe was published in the supplement too.
Check out my Kalyana Rasam , Kalyana Sambar.

  7. Hi, I tried this recipe. It was OK, but there was almost no water and tamarind taste was higher. Not sure what I missed. I didn't add water while adding soaked dhal. Also, is 1 cup of tamarind extract correct? Please help. Thanks.

    1. Thanks for trying it out. 1 cup is perfectly fine but if you are using tamarind paste take 2 tsp and dilute it with 1 cup of water.
      If using tamarind, soak a small goosebeery size and extract the juice. The soaked water in along with the dal you should add into the cooker.
