Temple Style Potol Rasha

Potol Rasha is one of the most popular recipe of Odisha,India…Its also a very tasty recipe among the Mahaprasad of Jagannath Temple,Puri...I already wrote the potol aloo rasha recipe n my previous post, but this one is a bit diff, as here the potol is cooked in coconut milk, and ginger cumin paste--no garlic, onions and potatoes used for this temple style recipe of Jagannath Temple..and here it goes:-


500gm Potol(Parwal)
1 1/2'' Ginger, 1/2 tbsp Cumin seed and 1/4 cup grated coconut(soaked in water and ground to a fine paste)
1 Cup Thick Coconut Milk
1 tsp panch phutan
1 tsp red chilli powder
1/2 tsp Turmeric Powder
1 tsp garam masala
1 bay leaf(tej patta)
Salt to taste


Wash and cut the potol/parwal in round shapes(cut one in 2/3 pieces)..
Take ghee in a pan and fry the potol/parwal pieces wel and keep aside..
Add ghee to the hot pan,take 1 tsp panch phutan and tej patta, when it crackles, add the masala paste .
Add red chilli powder, turmeric powder and fry well until oil evaporates.
Then add the potol/parwal pieces with coconut milk and salt.

Add water if necessary and bring to boil  for 2-3 min.
Now cook in medium flame till the gravy thickens.
Add garam masala powder and cook for 1-2 min.
Serve hot with rice/roti/paratha...enjoy..:-)
