Karpooravalli Thuvaiyal

Karpooravallli(Tamil) otherwise is called as  Country Borage plant. It has lots of medicinal benefits. The karpooravalli leaves are used for treating common cold, cough, sore throats, nasal congestion, indigestion, rheumatism and so on. The leaves of karpooravalli plant are quite fleshy and very aromatic. These leaves are very good source of vitamins and minerals. Karpooravalli plants are easy to grow and maintain. Cut a small piece of the plant from where it is available and plant it in soil with ample amount of water. It will grow and spread faster. I have karpooravalli plant in my balcony and I have made different recipes with it. For now I will share with you all a simple and aromatic Karpooravalli Thuvaiyal. Do check out other delectable chutney and thuvaiyal varieties here.

Here’s how to make Karpooravalli Thuvaiyal with step by step photos…


Ingredients

Karpooravalli Leaves
10-15
Urad Dal
¼ cup
Coriander Seeds/Dhaniya
1 tbsp
Dry Red Chillies
3-4
Cumin Seeds/Jeeragam
¾ tsp

1 tsp
Tamarind
One small amala size ball
Salt
As needed
Oil
2 tsp

For Tempering

Oil
1 tsp
Mustard Seeds
¼ tsp
Cumin Seeds
¼ tsp
Split Urad dal/Ullutam Paruppu
½ tsp
Curry Leaves/Karivepillai
10-15
Asafoetida
One small pinch

Method

Karpooravalli Plant in my balcony.


Wash the karpooravalli leaves thoroughly with water and remove the excess stem.


Heat 1 tsp of oil in the same kadai and roast the urad dal until it turns to golden brown colour and transfer it to a plate.


In the same kadai/pan, add coriander seeds, black pepper corns, cumin seeds, dry red chillies and saute until they turn to light brown colour and nice aroma fills the room. Switch off the stove and transfer it to a plate.


Heat 1 tsp of oil in kadai and saute the karpooravalli leaves for about a minute and transfer it to a plate.


After everything cools down add it to the mixer along with tamarind and grind it to a paste and transfer it to a bowl.


Heat oil in a kadai for tempering, splutter mustard seeds, add cumin seeds, urad dal, asafoetida, curry leaves and sauté for few seconds and add it to the thuvaiyal.


Delicious and healthy chutney is ready to be enjoyed. Serve it with idlis, dosas or any other tiffin items.

Suggestions:
After adding the tempering to the thuvaiyal, you can cook it on low flame till it attins thick thuvaiyal texture. But in the above steps I have not cooked it further.

Adjust the spice & salt level according to your families taste.

    1. இதை நாங்கள் ஓமவல்லி இலை என்றுதான் சொல்வது உண்டு. நல்ல ஜீரண சக்தியைக் கொடுக்கக்கூடியது.
