Recently I posted the recipe for pathrode. Yesterday I prepared it again for dinner but served it differently with a simple ghasi/gravy. At home this is called "ghasintule pathrode" which means "patties dipped in coconut gravy". This is just a serving suggestion of pathrode. The only additional step is to prepare ghasi/coconut gravy. This surely is very unique and tasty. Definitely worth trying !
Ingredients for ghasi:
1 cup grated coconut
6-7 red chillies
1/2 teaspoon tamarind extract
2 teaspoon oil
1/2 teaspoon fenugreek seeds
1/2 teaspoon mustard seeds
5-6 curry leaves
1/2 cup water
In a pan heat 1 teaspoon oil and fry fenugreek seeds for couple of minutes.
Make a fine paste of fried fenugreek seeds, grated coconut, red chillies and tamarind extract.
To the paste add 1/2 cup water, salt and bring it to boil.
In a skillet heat oil and add mustard seeds. When mustard seeds starts spluttering add curry leaves.
Pour it on ghasi.
Once you have steamed pathrode cut into desired sizes, place them in a bowl and pour ghasi on them. Leave it for 4-5 minutes before eating. Serve it with rice.
Preparation Time: 35 mins (excludes pathrode preparation time)
