Mitta avale bendhi / salted amala curry

This is again a forgotten Konkani dish.  My grand mother’s mother used to prepare this and this was her favourite dish.  
Salted amala/mitta avalo                                 8 to 10
Grated coconut                                                  1 cup
Red chilly                                                             10 to 12
Garlic                                                                    8  to 10  cloves
Coconut oil                                                          2 to 3 tsp
Take salted amla then soak in water for 5 min. wash this with clean water. then cut amla into pieces add half cup water and pressure cook for 2 whistles.
Fry red chilly in little oil for 2min in low flame.
Grind grated coconut and fried red chilly into fine paste. then add this paste to pressure cooked amla and boil it for 10 to 15 min.
Heat oil in kadai   add crushed garlic fry  till light brown then pour this on boiling curry.
Tasty avale bendhi  with rice and papadam.
