JULLKA

The food which consumes less time to prepare, with simple ingredients, when we have no mood to spend around much time in kitchen.

Are u looking for the recipe coming under this category. You have come to the right page here. That’s Julka alias Bombay chutney…

This one I goes for most of the times when I have no mood no time to make subji or gravy for my chappati. It gives equallent taste to curry/gravy/subji.

The dish was named by my sil’s fil. Still I dono why he has named this dish as Julka… It’s funny to sound the dish as Julka. Here comes the easty tasty recipe of Julka…

INGREDIENTS

Onion 2
Tomato 1 (optional)
Green chilli 2
Mustard/jeera 1 tsp
Coriander powder ¼ tsp or less
Red chilli powder ½ tsp
Garam masala ½ tsp
Turmeric a pinch
Salt to taste
Gram flour/kadalai mavu 2 tsp
Oil 2 tsp

PREPARATION

Slit the onions, tomatoes and green chilli in thin long strips.
Pop up mustard seed or jeera in a pan and add chillies first then onion and tomatoes. Sauté till it becomes translucent.
Add salt, turmeric, coriander powder, red chilli powder and masala in that.
Fry for some time. Mix well the gram flour in ½ or more glass of water. If it is so thick dilute it by adding more water. Add the water to the Julka. Allow it to boil and cook for few mts until the raw smell of masala and gram flour goes off and the gravy thickens.
Garnish with curry leaves/cilantro. Serve hot with chapatti/parathas/Dosa.
