Vadiyala pulusu(Soup with wadi/vadam)

This post is just going to be about food, comfort food that I miss the most. I strongly feel that dishes like this are fast disappearing with the number of food options that are available now. My great grand parents and my grand parents were strict vegetarians even the eggs are forbidden from entering in the home and this recipe was passed on from my great grandma to my grandma. I strongly believe recipes like these were born out of creativity when someone ran out of vegetables but was expected to present something right away. All the ingredients are versatile and depending on availability some of them can be eliminated too.

Vadiyala pulusu

Here is what you need:

* Onion - 1 large(Chopped into long thin strips)
* Tomato - 1 medium (Chopped into bite sized pieces)
* Tamarind - half a lemon sized ball(soaked in water)
* Jaggery - 1tbsp (optional)
* Salt - acc to your taste
* Turmeric - 1/2 tsp
* Red chili powder - 1 tsp
* Oil - 1 tbsp
* Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
* Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
* Asafoetida - 1 pinch
* Curry leaves - 2 sprigs
* Fried urad dal vadiyams - couple handfuls

Heat oil in the pan, add mustard and cumin seeds when the oil is hot enough. When the seeds start sputtering add asafoetida and curry leaves in.

Add the chopped onion to the pan and fry them till the pieces turn translucent. Now add the chopped tomato pieces in and let them soften a little bit.

Squeeze the soaked tamarind and add the tamarind juice to the onion & tomato mixture. Add the salt, chili powder and turmeric; let the pulusu(soup) cook for 15 to 20 mins on medium high. If you want to add jaggery to the pulusu add it after cooking the pulusu halfway through.

Now add the fried vadiyams into the pulusu and cook for 10 more minutes.

Enjoy it with white rice
