Put this chopped curry fruit and bring them to boil and keep this in medium flame for about 3-4 mins Drain the water content and remove the seeds of curry fruit and keep it aside.

Peel the yellow cucumber, remove seeds, inner part and cut it into medium sized pieces as shown in the picture below.

Put chopped cucumber, salt, chilly powder, turmeric powder, water in a vessel and cook. Add curry fruit and boil, keep this in low/medium flame for about 2-3 mins. Switch off the flame and allow it to cool for about 5 mins. Add buttermilk to the same vessel and keep it aside for about 10-15mins. (If it is yogurt/curd put it in a mixer for few seconds before adding it to majjige huli.)
Put grated coconut and green chillies in a mixer. Add enough water and grind it to smooth paste. (If it is frozen coconut, add hot water while grinding.) Add this ground coconut to the vessel containing cooked curry fruit & cucumber. Bring it to boil and mix well.

@ Anonymous,

In my blog I have not mentioned that whatever I prepare is available in US. This was prepared recently when I visited India.
I haven't seen Kaanakalyate in US markets. So how can I tell where you would get it in US?

It's grown in California.Long time ago I found a website, California rare fruit grower's.They had listed it as curry fruit and subsequently they seem to have withdrawn it.i was also under the impression that it is native to our place.These days people don't know what it is except for people like you and me.Recently I bought 2kgs as the vendor didn't know what to do with it here in Vittal.
