Bilvapatre Tambli

Ingredients:
1/2 bunch of Bael / Bilvapatre Ele (Preferred: Tender one)
1 cup grated Coconut
1 Green Chilly
1.5 - 2 cups of fresh Buttermilk
Salt to taste
1/2 tsp Mustard seeds
1/4 tsp Cumin seeds
4 - 5 Curry leaves
1 - 2 broken Red Chillies
1.5 tsp Ghee

Recipe:
Remove the stems, wash the leaves properly and keep it aside.

Put 1 tsp ghee in a thick bottomed vessel. Add Bilvapatre leaves and fry them for about 4-5 mins in medium flame.

Grind grated coconut, fried Bilvapatre leaves, green chilly into smooth paste by adding sufficient amount of water. (If it is frozen coconut, use hot water while grinding.) Add this ground coconut to a vessel. Add buttermilk, salt to the same vessel and mix them well. (If it is yogurt/curd, put it in a mixer for few seconds before adding it to Tambli.)

Put mustard seeds, cumin seeds, red chilly pieces and 1/2 tsp ghee in a pan. Once it starts spluttering, add curry leaves and add it to Tambli. Mix well before serving. It goes well with Rice.

Loved this recipe . Never knew that there are recipes out of bilwa patra. When everybody is writing about the world cuisine so nice to see a traditional Indian recipe
