Authentic Bindi Masala

There are times when you are bored with the same method of preparation of a particular sabji especially Bindi where I have only a couple of methods.  I thought of mixing and matching masalas and voila, the end product was awesome and then on, this preparation is always a hit. Aptly termed 'Bindi masala', I am sure you would enjoy this.

Ingredients:

Tender bindi - 1/2 kg
Onions (medium) - 1
Tomato (medium) - 1
Sambar powder - 1/2 tsp
Chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
Coriander powder - 1/4 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Hing - a pinch
Urad dal - 1/4 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1/4 tsp
Curry leaves- a sprig
Oil

Chop the head and the tail of bindi after washing and drying well. I chose similar size ones and was easy to cook and a visual treat too once it was done.

Take two tablespoons of oil in kadai, add urad dal, mustard seeds and when it splutters, add curry leaves and hing.  Add chopped onions and keep stirring till it turns translucent. Now, add the chopped tomatoes.  Keep stirring in medium fire till it becomes slightly cooked.

Add the bindi and then add sambar powder,coriander powder, turmeric powder,chilly powder and salt in that order.  Stir slowly and cover just for a few mintues. After two to three minutes, remove the lid.  Keep stirring till it is done.

This goes well with rice and a perfect combination with garam garam rotis.
