Rhumbada Sukke

I have already  written  all about  the benefits  about rhumbad / cluster figs  in  an earlier post . Now here is a very tasty side dish with coconut . you will be left licking your fingers !Lets check out the recipe !
  • Rhumbad – 1 cup – ( quartered & cleaned  )
  • Grated Coconut  – 3/4 cup 
  • Red Chillies –  5 -8 as per your spice level 
  • Tamarind – 1 gooseberry  size 
  • Turmeric powder – 1/4 tsp 
  •  Salt to taste  

For tempering 

  • Mustard seeds – 1 tsp 
  • Urad dal – 1/2 tsp 
  • Methi seeds – 1/4 tsp
  • Oil


After chopping – the seeds of the fruit have to be removed , they  are very tiny  and so you can remove them in two ways – either drop them in a vessel of water & wash well & drain the fruits . or you can add salt to them & keep for a while . when you see it has left water ..you can slightly crush with your palms . squeeze the water out and then winnow to remove the seeds . the fruit is ready to be cooked now 

  1. Heat the oil in a kadai  and splutter mustard seeds ..Then add the urad dal & methi and let it brown ,
  2. Now add the salted rhumbad & a little water . Cover & cook .
  3. Grind to a coarse paste – the coconut , red chillies  , tamarind & turmeric powder adding very little or no water      
  4. When the rhumbhad is almost cooked , add the coconut paste & mix well .
  5. Cover & cook on low flame  stirring in between so that it gets well roasted ( bhajjunnu kadaka)You can add a little more oil if you want  or use a non-stick pan if you dont want to use much oil .  Remove from stove when done

Enjoy this with rice as a side dish  !
