Chettinad's Poori kizhangu
   It is an extremely simple dish n soo tasty  that accompanies roties n poories so well and so the name poori kizhangu...it's an Indian recipe which is liked n cooked by many Indians in their way of cooking but here for this recipe, i've chosen the cooking way of my granny n my mom.......my granny pass this recipe to my mom n my mom to me without any alterations in the  recipe.....so..I call it as gen food..

  It's a tasty side dish for poories that no other dish makes the substitute for this poori kizhangu......n it calls for only few ingredients like mashed potatoes, green chillies, onions n spices for tempering..that's it......

Boiled n mashed potatoes - 1 cup.
onions - 2 (sliced).
Green chillies - 4-5 (sliced into 2).
Tomatoes - 2 (chopped).
turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp.
Salt - as needed.
water - 1/2 cup.

for tempering:
Oil - 1 tbsp.
Saunf / fennel seeds - 1 tsp.
Urad dhall / Split bengal gram - 1 tsp.
fresh curry leaf - few leaves.

Method :

  => heat oil in a pan, temper split bengal gram / urad dhall, fennel seeds/ saunf n  curry leaf.
