KHEERLA SUKKE (BAMBOO SIDEDISH)


I learnt this unique Bamboo sidedish from my mother in law. In konkani we say 'Kheerlu' for bamboo. In mangalore we get it in huge large quantity. Let me tell you all the loving part of my father in law. I am trully blessed to have loving inlaws like them. He never let me do the bamboo chopping as its very hard to remove the skin and to chop them into tiny pieces. He does it all by himself. The bamboo chopping will be in bulky amount so what we do is store it in air tight container and refrigarate them. It will be fresh for 1 week. Now currently being in US, when I saw fresh bamboo shoots in Chinese market, I was very much thrilled. I have seen canned ones but was not feeling comfortable taking them than that of the fresh ones. Have a look at my recipe.


INGREDIENTS.

2 cups Chopped Bamboo.

1/2 cup Chopped Potato.

1/2 tsp Mustard seeds.

1/2 tsp chilli powder.

1/2 tsp Urad dal.

1/4 tsp turmeric powder.

1 tbsp Grated coconut.

1 tbs Tamarind extract.

1 cup Water.

1 tsp coconut oil.

Salt to taste.

METHOD.

Wash the chopped bamboo and potato under running water. Drain and keep them aside.


Heat oil in a pan, add mustard seeds and urad dal. Fry till the urad dal colour turns slight brown.

Add chopped bamboo and potato with water. Bring to boil and simmer for 15 to 20 min or until the veggies cook.

Meanwhile in plate , mix coconut with red chilly and turmeric powder.

Add the coconut mixture to the cooked bamboo and potato with adjusted amount of salt and tamarind extract.

Remove from the flame and drizzle few drops of coconut oil on the top of the sidedish.


The bamboo's are higly rich in proteins so sending this recipe to ''DIET FOOD EVENT'' HOSTING BY DIVYA.
Enjoy !!

It's been a real long time since the last time I tasted this bamboo dish. I wonder if restaurants in mumbai offer it.

Have been seeing a lot of fresh bamboo stems at the market here, but never knew what to do with it.:)
