In a guest post Ms.Vishnu Priya,a house wife in Jaipur,shares the recipe for making a rajasthani curry using Aloe Vera ( Gawar Patha ) stems as found in rajasthan or the corner Reliance Fresh Store.
6 Nos. Aloe Vera (Gawar Patha) leaves
1 tea spoon Red Chilli Powder
1/2 tea spoon Turmeric Powder
1/2 tea spoon Coriander Powder
A pinch of Asafoetida Powder( hing)
Salt To Taste
2 tea spoon fenugreek (Dana Methi) Seeds
2 tea spoon Saunf (aniseed)
10 gm Almonds
10 gm kismis ( raisins)
1 tea spoon Amchur ( dried green Mango powder)
2 Table Spoon Mustard Oil
After washing the Aloe leaves peal them & cut them in 1 inch pieces and boil them in Salt water till they are a little tender.Throw away the salt water. This will remove the natural sourness of the Aloe. Keep the boiled Aloe aside.
In a wok heat the oil till it smokes(removes the smell from the oil and cooks it).Add Heeng,Saunf,and dana methi.Just as they crackle ( on low flame) add chillies, turmeric,coriander,salt&amchur and fry the spices.Add a little water to cook the spices properly then add the boiled aloe and cook some more.Add the dry fruits.The vegetable is ready to be served.
