Ginger Curry (Injicurry)

I love the Kerala sadya. When I was young, I looked forward to Onam to have a sadya.. ah! coz that is the only day we have sadya at home. One of my favourite dish is inji curry and that too puthri chechy's injicurry. It is so tasty and I thought it must be really difficult to make it. Once when puthrichechy came home, I asked her to make injicurry and lo!!! it was so simple... wow!!! this is her recipe...

Ginger:250 gm chopped fine
Green chillies: 5 chopped fine
Tamarind: lime sized (yes, lime sized!!!!) soaked in a bowl of water
Kashmiri Redy Chilly powder: 3 tbsp
Fenugreek powder: 1/4 tsp
Sugar: 3/4 tbsp
Salt: as required
Oil: 1/4 cup

In a heavy bottomed pan, heat the oil and fry the green chillies and ginger till ginger turns brown.
Now add the tamarind water, salt and chilly powder and let it boil.
When the gravy becomes thick, add the fenugreek powder and simmer for a few more minutes.
Add the sugar and turn off the stove.
Heat oil and splutter mustard seeds, shallots, dried red chilly and curry leaves and pour over the inji curry.
This goes well with rice.
