Puthcode Pulinkari

My husband is from Puthcode, and he always talks about this Pulinkari. I decided to try and make it, but he still seemed to think that it didn't taste the same. Oh well!!! I was just trying to please him.

1/4 cup Red Pumpkin
1/4 cup White Pumpkin
1/4 cup Raw Plantain
1/4 cup Suran/Chena/Yam
1/2 tsp turmeric pwd
1 tsps tamarind paste
1 tsp jaggery
salt to taste

Grind to a fine powder:
Red Chillies 4

Rice 1 tbsp
Udad Dal 1 tsp
Mehti seeds 1/2 tsp

Coconut Oil 1 tbsp
Mustard seeds 1 tsp
Red Chilli 1
Curry Leaves 4

Roast each item till well browned and grind into a fine powder.
Cut vegetables into cubes about an inch in size and boil in 1 cup of water with salt and turmeric.
Add tamarind paste, hing and jaggery, boil for a few minutes.
Add the ground powder,and stir well, so no lumps are formed.
Add 2 cups water and let it cook till it looks like a nice gravy.
Remove from heat.
For the seasoning, heat oil add mustard seeds and the red chilli, once it splutters add the curry leaves.
Pour over pulinkari and serve with rice and olan.
