Chola talasan

Chola talasan( ussal) is  my all time favourite.  Ussal is given  as prasadam in temple's in Bangalore. I go to temples only to have it. Ussal of  this kind is disturbed in Ganpati temple during sankasti. I got this recipe from Anu aunty, She is Tamilian who happened to be my neighbour.

Method of making :
  •  Soak a big cup of chola over night.Add 2 cups of water, a tsp salt and pressure cook for 2 whistles.
  •  In a  pan or wok add 2 tbsp of oil ( any oil is ok, i have used sunflower oil). Once oil become hot add 1 tsp of mustard seeds.Let it crackle. Now add 3-4 finely chopped green chillies, 1 tsp of finely chopped ginger, 1/2 tsp cummin seeds, 2 strings of curry leaves, around 1 tbsp of finely chopped corainder leaves saute for a minute. Squeeze half lemon (or more if you like tangy). Now  add boiled channa or chola. Adjust for salt.Mix well  add 2 tbsp of freshly grated coconut and garnish with some chopped coriander leaves.
  • Goes really well with hot cup of tea.
