Avere vaghu (Amara vithu)

This is a recipe which is generally prepared during fasting days because in this no onion or no garlic is used.  The method given here is my mother-in-law’s method.
Avaro  (amara seed)       --  1 cup
Tomatoes                         -- 2 to 3
Chilly powder                  --  2 tbsp (according to  taste it can vary)
Hing                                   -- ½ tsp
Mustard seeds                 -- ½ tsp
Methi  seeds                         --  ¼ tsp
Coriander powder            -- 1 tsp
Curry leaves    few
Coriander leaves chopped   -- 2tbsp
Soak Avaro for 5 to 6 hours and pressure cook. 
Heat oil in kadai, add mustard seeds, methi, curry leaves, hing powder, chilly powder and coriander powder  fry for 5 minutes in a low flame then add chopped tomatoes and cooked Avaro and chopped coriander leaves.  Boil it for 10 to 15 minutes.  This is a semi dry curry.  Goes well with chappathi or rice as side dish.
