Nuvvulu Koora (Sesame Curry)

Long back I mentioned in a meme about this dish thats my moms special. Sesame is usually available in cream white and black in color. I used the cream white one for making this dish. Do you know sesame seeds are rich in calcium, vitamins B1 and E. Here goes the recipe....

What we need ....

Sesame seeds (nuvvulu) - 1 cup

Onions - 2 medium sized chopped finely

Coriander seeds - 1 tsp

Jeera/cumin seeds - 1 tsp

Garlic cloves - 4

Curry leaves - 1 sprig

Turmeric - 1/2 tsp

Chilly powder - 1/2 tsp (adjust according to your spice level)

Salt to taste

Oil - 2 tsps

How to ....

1. Grind garlic, coriander seeds, and jeera coarsely. To it add sesame seeds and grind to a coarse powder. Set aside.

2. Heat oil in a kadhai, add curry leaves, chopped onions and turmeric. Allow the onions to turn light brown in color.

3. Reduce the heat to medium, add ground sesame powder, salt to taste and fry for about 8 mins so that the curry doesn't stick to the pan.

4. Add chilly powder and fry for another 5 mins on low flame till the curry turns golden brown .

5. Serve hot with steamed rice, a dollop of ghee and I bet u'll luv it.
