Kara Pendalam/ Cassava Curry

This is a simple curry prepared using Cassava ( Kara Pendalam in telugu). It is root vegetable rich in carbohydrates.

I learnt this recipe from my mom. This goes well with rotis and also can have alone with sambar rice.

Cassava – 1 no
Green chillies – 4 no
Onion chopped – 1 no
Ginger – 1’’ inch
Mustard seeds – ¼ tsp
Jeera – ¼ tsp
Channa dal – ¼ tsp
Curry leaves – 3 to5 leaves
Tumeric powder – ¼ tsp
Salt As Required
Red chilli powder As Required
Oil – 2 tsps


Preparation

  • Boil Cassava Root in a pressure cooker for about 1-2 whistles with 1 tsp of salt, peel and make small pieces and keep aside.
  • Take green chillies, ginger into a blender and make a coarse paste and keep aside.
  • In a cooking vessel, add oil, channa dal, mustard seeds, jeera, curry leaves.
  • When mustard seeds splutter add green chillies, ginger paste.
  • Add chopped onions and cook till onions become soft.
  • Add boiled cassava pieces
  • Add salt, turmeric powder, mix well
  • Place a lid and cook for 10 mins.
  • Add red chilli powder and cook for another 5 mins.

  18. How can one call this a curry. There is no mention of the addition of water or coconut milk. Is this dish done with or without any liquid, and if so, when does one add the liquid?
