Pala Pindimiriyam | Mix Veggie Curry

2 Cups of Opo Squash & Carrots ( Cut them in to small pieces)
1 Cup milk
1 Tsp sugar ( optional)
Salt for taste
To Grind
1 Tbs channa Dal
1 tsp turmeric
1 Tbs urad Dal
1 Tsp black peppers
1 tsp rice
2 Red chilli’s
1 Tsp dhaniya
1 Tsp sesame seeds
1 Tbs oil

Take a pan and add oil to it. Allow it to heat & add all the ingredients to the pan. Fry them till
channa & urad dal have fried well. Turn off heat & allow it to cool. Once cooled, grind to a
smooth paste & add little milk to it.
( Or )
You can just dry roast the above ingredients without adding oil. But I felt there was an enhanced
flavor when you fry them with oil.

For seasoning
1 Tsp Mustard
1 Tsp Jeera
1 Red chilli
2 Tsp oil
Pinch of Hing
Curry leaves

Steam cook the veggies first. Take a wide bottom pan with veggies & add milk to the bottom
along with the ground pate. Sprinkle little salt & allow it to cook. Slowly the milk starts breaking & the mixture becomes thick. Add sugar & balance the salt. 
Heat a pan with oil. Add mustard, jeera & red chili’s to it. Once the mustard starts jumping add hing to the pan & switch off heat.
Add curry leaves to the hot oil & mix it with curry.

Pindimiriyam is ready to serve with rice & roti’s.
