2.Tamarind pulp - 4tsp
3.Dry coconut powder - 1/2cup
4.Onion - 1 medium size finely chopped
5.Green chillies - 2nos chopped
6.Turmeric powder - 3/4tsp
7.Coriander powder - 1/2tsp
8.Coriander chopped - 1/2cup

10.Mustard/refined oil - 3tsp
11.Black mustard seeds - 1tsp
12.Cumin seeds - 1tsp
13.Salt to taste
14.Whole red chilly - 2nos


Heat oil in a wok and add mustard seeds,cumin seeds,whole red chilly and allow to crackle.Next saute the onions till brown in colour.Add kakadi,green chilly and stir fry in high flame for few seconds.Mix in turmeric powder,coriander powder,salt,coconut powder and stir fry for one more minute.Now mix in the tamarind pulp along with some water,cover and cook for one minute in a low flame.Next add coriander,sugar and give a final stir till sugar dissolves completely.Kakdi should be crunchy and not fully soft.Garnish with some more coconut powder and serve hot.
