Dry Peas - 1 cup. Soak in water for 8 hrs and cooked in single whistle.
Turmeric powder - a pinch
Aniseed (perunjeeragam)

Green chillies - 3
Coconut pieces - 3
Cinnamon - a small piece
Cloves - 1 piece
Onion - 1 big or 2 small ones
Tomato - 1 big or 2 small ones
Dania seeds - 2 tablespoon.


Dry fry the dania seeds in a kadai and the gravy items along with dania has to be grind well. Now Heat oil in a kadai and add aniseeds. Now add the cooked dry peas and potato pieces and fry for a min. Add the grind gravy, turmeric powder and salt and add little amount of water and leave it in the flame for 5 mins. If required add a slit green chilly. Once the raw smell of the gravy is gone, remove from fire.
