Kokum curry/Sol Kadhi


Kokum(Soaked in water)- 10-12
Coconut milk- 1 cup
Oil- 1-2 tbsp
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Curry leaves 5-6
Green chillies 1-2
Asafoetida - 1/2 tsp
Red chillies - 1-2
Ginger(finely chopped) - 1/2 tsp
3,4 Garlic(finely chopped)
Jaggery - 1 tsp


Soak the kokum in 1 cup of water for 15-20 minutes. Then strain and squeeze it completely. Keep the kokum water aside.

Heat oil in a kadai. Add mustard seeds and cumin seeds. When they splutter add curry leaves, red chilly, asafoetida, finely chopped ginger, garlic, and green chillies. Saute them for few seconds on medium flame. 
Add the kokum water, coconut milk and little slat. Add 1 tsp of Jaggery(optional). Jaggery adds taste and balances the tanginess of kokum. 
Mix well and cook on medium flame for 3-4 minutes. 

When it comes to a boil, switch off the flame. Finally garnish with coriander leaves and serve. This curry goes well with rice. You can also keep this in fridge and serve cold after lunch, as it helps in digestion and keeps your body cool.
