Keerla Neeli Sukke/Bamboo Shoot Dry Curry

Keerla Neeli Sukke
Keerlu means Bamboo shoots. And neeli means small small pieces of these shoots. As I mentioned in my last post about mushrooms being my favourite there is another addition to it are bamboo shoots I am game antime. Though v never get bamboo shoots in this season, things have developed so much that v get anything at any season and here we got it canned. I just love bamboo shoots. I am waiting to eat the fresh ones.
I had prepare d for lunch and after my hubby had his lunch he called me and told Aps keep some for me I want to eat it again! It tastes awesome I must say! I feel so happy when he tells me so I just feel to try new things and make him happy.
Here is the lovely recipe:
Bamboo shoots finely chopped – 1 large bowl
Fresh coconut scraped – ½ cup
Red chillies(fried in 1tsp oil) -5
2 lemon sized jaggery
Urad dal(fried in lil oil) -1tsp
Coriander seeds(fried in oil) -1tsp
Salt to taste
For seasoning:
1tsp oil
Mustard seeds-1tsp
Curry leaves – few

Method:
As I used canned ones I hadn’t to soak it overnight, not boil it much.
Firstly boil chopped bamboo shoots in lil water.
Then add jaggery and salt and boil till jaggery melts.
Grind coconut, red chillies, tamarind, fried urad dal and coriander seeds coarsely.
Then add this gravy to the bamboo shoots and boil for 5 minutes.
Heat oil add mustard seeds, when they splatter add curry leaves and season this on the sukke.

P.S : Do not add too much water as it is a dry gravy.
This goes good with chapathi, white rice or boiled rice.
