Two days in a row! :)
Here is a yummy thokku that I tried from Kamala's blog. Very pungent, very spicy and delicious! I had some with steaming hot rice and ghee (I've gotten re-addicted to ghee these days), some spread on toasted whole wheat bread with some oil drizzled on top and even made a tomato gojju using this as the base. Versatile dish this.
1/2 cup ginger, cut into very tiny pieces or grated
5-6 dry red chilies
1 tsp methi seeds
1 tsp mustard seeds
1/2 tsp tamarind paste
1 tsp jaggery
salt to taste
2 tbsp oil
Dry roast methi seeds in a kadai. Keep aside. In the same kadai, add a tsp of oil and fry the red chilies for a few seconds and keep aside.
Pour the remaining oil into the kadhai and fry the ginger, until the raw smell is gone, about 3-4 minutes. Let cool.
Make a powder of the methi seeds. Add mustard seeds, red chilies, ginger, tamarind, jaggery and salt to that and pulse until smooth.
Taste and adjust the seasonings.
Serve, well, however you like it! :)
