Blogging Marathon# 58: Week 2/ Day 3

Theme: Dry Vegetable Sautes

Dish: Green Pepper Poriyal

For the final day of this week’s blogging marathon, I made yet another poriyal from Dakshin cookbook. This recipe is flavored with a homemade poriyal powder and is quite different tasting from yesterday’s masala beans poriyal.

Poriyal podi aka curry powder is made with dals (lentils), coriander seeds and dry red chilies. Making a big batch of this makes it easy to make quick dry curries. It can be used to make potato fry, arbi (colacassia, chamadumpa) fry and so on.

Add a potato to below curry for a nice variation. Make the same curry with tindora (dondakaya), but skip the yogurt altogether.
