Navalkol Peanut Curry

Sometime ago I saw the Tinda in peanut curry on Vinaya's Mom's shared pictures. I was curious what it was? That inspired me to try this combo of Navalkol and Peanuts.

The addition of peanuts mask the smell of Navalkol well, a requirement for me. I don't enjoy the smell of Navalkol.

It is a simple to make curry that goes well with chapati and roti. I would not recommend it with rice Or just may be you might like it.


2 bulbs Navalkol halved and sliced
1/4 cup peanut powder
1/2 teaspoon mustard seeds
1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
1/2 teaspoon garam masala
1/2 teaspoon red chili powder
1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
2 teaspoon oil.
salt to taste
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1 tablespoon kokum extract.

Heat oil and give the tadka of mustard seeds and cumin seeds. Add the sliced Navalkol and fry a bit. Add in the peanut powder and top up with water. Add the spice powders and give it a stir.

Boil till Navalkol is cooked and soft. It holds itself well in the curry. After it is cooked completely add kokum extract, salt and sugar and bring to a rolling boil. Put off the heat and serve after 10 mins, this allows the blending of the flavours.

You can make this in a Pressure cooker too to save time.
