Urad dal-1/2 tsp
Curry leaves- 1sprig
oil-1 1/2 tsp
Cut avaraikkai in small pieces as shown below...Sprinkle some water(1/8 cup)and pressure cook for 1 whiste....and in low flame for 5 minutes...(i kept it along with rice)...
Take a pan and temper with mustard,urad dal,curry leaves and then add shallots and fry them till transparent...Now add the boiled avaraikkai and add salt and sambar powder...
