Ingredients to make Chettinad Vengaya Kosu

  • onions 2, chopped
  • tomato 1, Chopped
  • garlic 2 pods
  • ginger an inch
  • Kuskus 1 tsp
  • fennel seeds 2 tsp
  • Grated coconut 1/2 cup
  • turmeric powder 1/2 tsp
  • Sambar powder 1 tsp
  • salt to taste
  • oil as required

How to make Chettinad Vengaya Kosu

  1. Saute onions, ginger and garlic until the onions turn pink.
  2. Grind the sauteed mixture along with coconut, khus khus and fennel seeds 1 tsp.
  3. Heat oil in a cooker, saute fennel seeds 1 tsp. Add chopped tomatoes and saute until mushy.
  4. To this, add the ground paste. Mix well. Add turmeric powder, Sambar powder or curry masala powder and salt.
  5. Cook it for 3-4 whistles. Garnish with chopped coriander leaves. Serve hot with idlis/dosas.

My Tip:

Potato cubes can be added after sauteing tomatoes. Sambar powder can be replaced with curry masala powder or just the chilli powder but tastes differ. Shallots can be used in place of big onions for a better taste. In that case 1 cup shallots have to be used.
