Instructions
  1. Pressure cook alsande kalu or lobia for 3-4 whistles, add little haldi .If you have soaked overnight, cook for 2 whistles only as it gets cooked quickly .
  2. Cook such that lobia has retained shape and firm.. but when pressed mushy. Keep aside to be used later.
  3. In a kadai , heat oil/coconut oil and splutter mustard seeds. I would recommend using coconut oil for authentic taste . Add chopped Onion & curry leaves. Saute 1-2 mins till onions are translucent .
  4. Later add tomato , salt and haldi . Saute till tomatoes are little mushy .
  5. Meanwhile .. grind all the ingredients mentioned under masala adding little water. Make a smooth paste.
  6. Add ground masala , cooked lobia and water as required to sauteed onion tomato mix . Combine everything
  7. Boil gassi well . When it's boiling add 1-2 tsp coconut oil. Switch off and let it sit for few minutes . Since i have added byadgi chilli , the color of the curry is deep red colour.
  8. Enjoy Alsande Kalu Gassi / Mangalore style Lobia Curry with hot rice / chapathi / dosa .
