Kappa Puzhungiyathu + Mulaku Chammanthy ( Boiled Yucca + Green chili dip)


I saw this new mallu movie " Salt and Pepper" @ AMC here , and all i have to say about it sums up to    " a deliciously yummy experience". A beautifully taken , perfectly cast and brilliantly witty movie , in which the story starts with a take out call for dosa. Oh trust me , this movie makes you wanna eat a lot of yummy things :)


As a matter of fact , ever since we saw S and P , we were talking about all this yummy mallu combo dishes like - Puttu + Kadala , Appam + Erachi stew ,Porotta + Beef fry ,  Dosa + Sambar , Choru + meen curry ,Kanji + payar, kappa + mulaku ......Thats when N said" Wait , wait , you make most of these dishes often and what about kappa and velichenna ozhicha  mulaku chammanthi? Its been ages since you made it and I miss it ".

Mulaku chammanthy ( picture inspiration from Mishmash )
If the love of my life ; especially a food bloggers life ; says he miss something can I sit idle? I got into action , made the recipe of the day , and he pigged out to his hearts content. Thats the story about this recipe

               Chenda Kappa +Mulaku chammanthy ( picture inspiration from Mishmash )

Recipe for Kappa Puzhungiyathu / Chenda muriyan kappa / Boiled Yucca
Serves - 4
Total Cooking time - 30 minutes

Peel off the brown and pink skin from 2 large Yucca and cut into big pieces. As you peel and dice , put those into a bowl of water and when everything is done , clean and wash thoroughly , until the water runs clear. 
Bring to boil a pot of water and add a generous  pinch of salt and cook Yucca pieces for 15-20 minutres or until it is tender. Drain in a colander and set aside.

Recipe for Kanthari or Pacha  Mulaku chammanthy / Green chili dip
Serves - 4-6
Preparation time - 5 minutes ( no cooking involved)
(this is a rough estimate , use as per your likings)
Green chiles - 10-12 or Bird's eye chiles - 15
Kunjulli / Shallots / Pearl onion or chopped onion - 1/2 cup
Curry leaves 
Salt to taste
Coconut oil - 3 table spoon plus( i used extra virgin olive oil , since thats what i had then)

Combine chiles , shallots and curry leaves in a mortar and pestle or food processor and crush it. If using food processor or mixie , use 3-4 pulse. Transfer to a small bowl and add salt and coconut oil and combine well . ( my mom sometimes add a lil vinegar too in the end)

kitchenmorph said...

pretty pretty post. i loved it. you have an interest for photography and why don't you use what nashi uses: a form board? i have no clue what it is though...

i also suggest you add an english substitute for the kappa.....

came in to dig for sth sweet...

how you?

Sarah Naveen said...

@ Kitchenmorph ..hey i am doing good :)..Thanks a lot :)..
Yeah i do love food photography ...so do you mean to use foam board as a base?
I am gonna add the english title now :)...I appreciate the suggestion :)..Not many people do that ...
See you around here!
