Surnu Dhadyalolo

This is a very traditional almost forgotten recipe !! Dhadyalolo means smashed using a mortar & pestle . the true taste of this is indeed  in using a mortar & pestle ..but you can also use a mixer for this ! 
Ingredients – 
  • Yam / surnu – abt 50 gms
  • Tamarind – marble sized 
  •  Shallots / sambar onions – 10 -12 
  •  Curds – 1/2 cup
  • Chilli powder – 1/2 tsp or as per taste

Method – 

  1. Chop surnu into small pieces , add tamarind , shallots & salt  and keep aside to marinate for 1/2 an hour.
  2. Using a mortar & pestle .pound this well or grind coarsely in mixer.
  3. Add curds , chilli powder & mix well .
  • Mustard – 1tsp 
  • Jeera- 1/2 tsp 
  • curry leaves – a few

Make a tempering of the mustard , jeera & curry leaves & pour over the dish ,

Makes an excellent side dish for rice .

Tips- Use raw surnu only .this can be done without shallots too . You need not fear about irritation due to raw surnu , as the tamarind nullifies it.
