I am always excited to pick parwal from the star bazaar in chennai.This authentic dish is prepared in the northeast part of India. It is traditionally cooked with mustard oil, the aroma of mustard oil complements the other flavors of this gravy really well . So here is the authentic oriya style recipe that will make your family and guests asking for more ...
1.To cook food with mustard oil,first heat oil until the mustard oil begins to smoke otherwise the mustard oil would smell and spoils the dish. 2.Dont peel the skin of parwal completely otherwise it will become mushy. 3.Cooking with mustard oil is purely optional, but I prefer to cook my gravies with mustard oil for the authentic flavor and healthy benefits. 4.Parwal is normally is deep fried before using in the curry however I preferred to shallow fry.
I tried this recipe and it tastes awesome and reminds me of my mother. - 15 Jan 2016
Hi, This is not Rasa. This is simply the curry. Rasa is one which is cooked with 'Nadia Rasa' (i.e. coconut milk ). - 13 Nov 2014
