Pea Nut Gojju

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,
This is the curry I learnt from my cousin who has already shared her few recipes with me in my blog. She is settled down in Sagar after marriage and learnt all the traditional food from that region. Whenever I get chance to talk with her, I speak only about the food and her daughter.
This gojju or curry is very easy to make but tastes good with hot rice and coconut oil.

Ingredients :

For paste:
Peanut - 1 cup
Fresh coconut - 1/2 cup
Green chilly - 2
Fresh coriander - handful
Tamarind paste - 1 tbsp
Salt to taste
Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp(optional)

Water  - 1 cup or more(as per your requirement and consistency)

For tempering
Oil - 1/2 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Curry leaves - few(not in the photo, as I did not had in the night when I made this)
Green chilly or dry red chilly - 1 

Take all the ingredients under "for paste"  in a mixi or blender and grind into a fine paste. 
Add water as per your requirement. The gojju should be medium thick.
Transfer into a serving bowl.
Take oil in a small kadai.
When hot, add mustard seeds. When splutter, add cumin seeds, green or red chilly and curry leaves. Fry for a minute. Add this to the ready gojju.
Serve as it is or just warm it for HALF A MINUTE. 
Serve with hot rice and 1 tsp coconut oil(if you like the flavor) on it!
Its heaven!!
This is my last minute entry to (sorry, I missed to visit her blog since last month!)
