Paladya / ಪಳದ್ಯ

ಕನ್ನಡದಲ್ಲಿ ಓದಲು ಇಲ್ಲಿ ಕ್ಲಿಕ್ ಮಾಡಿ.

Paladya is one of the authentic curry recipes of Havyakas. It is prepared using the butter milk or sour curd. You can use okra, cucumber, dosakai (Yellow cucumber) or even potatoes for preparing this recipe. 


Ingredients:
Okra 5 - 6 (I used okra here. You can use other vegetables also)
Grated coconut - 1 cup
Dry red chilly - 1
Green chillies - 2
Coriander seeds - 1 1/2 spoon
Mustard seeds - 1/2 spoon
Turmeric - 1/4 spoon
Few curry leaves
1/2 lime
Salt as per taste
Butter milk
For seasoning: Oil - 1/2 spoon, Split black gram (urad dal) - 1/2 spoon, pinch of asafoetida, mustard seeds - 1/4 spoon 

Method:
Wash the okras thoroughly, drain the water and wipe them with a dry cloth to remove all the water.
Take around 2 cups of water in a vessel add salt, lemon squeeze as per your taste and allow it to boil by closing the lid.
Cut the okra into slightly big pieces and keep aside.
Grind the red chilly, green chillies, coriander seeds, mustard seeds, turmeric and 2 curry leaves with grated coconut into smooth paste by adding some water.
Once the water starts boiling, add the okra pieces and cook for 5-6 minutes. If you are using the frozen okras, its enough if you cook them for only 2 minutes.
When the okras are half-cooked, add the ground paste and some water-if required. Add few curry leaves and allow it to boil for another 2-3 minutes.
Do the seasoning when it is still hot.
While serving, just add some butter milk to the warm Paladya and serve with rice.

  1. have just discovered your site.
    will visit again
    a suggestion..'few'means none.'A few' means 'some'.
    eg: few people come here...hardly anyone comes here
    A FEW people came home...some,not many, people came home.
    thus your recipe should read :'A few curry leaves"
