I had been getting a lot of advice from my moms about how to revive my appetite - one such suggestion from my MIL was to have a cake that I like - she knows me too well, I guess. But that plan didn't work as I couldn't even tolerate a single bite. So my mom suggested that I try this with some rice. Though I couldn't eat much of rice, I did end up having this as a soup.
This oil and coconut free recipe is originally by my grand mother, especially for the times when anyone was sick in the family.
Buttermilk/Curd (whipped)-1 glass
Water -1 glass
Crushed Black Pepper-1/4 tsp
Salt as required
In a hard bottom pan add water,garlic,green chilli,pepper,turmeric and curry leaves. Bring this to a boil and at medium heat reduce this to half the amount.Now reduce the heat to low and add the buttermilk along with salt. Keep stirring till it just start to boil and then remove from heat. Dry roast the fenugreek and powder this to add to the curry.
Note: If you want you can temper some mustard and red dry chilli in a tbs of oil and add to the curry.
