You might have noticed till now that use of onion and garlic in all the recipes of this blog is almost nil. In Udupi “Krishna Matt” it is the custom to use only locally cultivated vegetables in cooking. Some of such vegetables are ash gourd, vallery(mangalore southe), white brinjal(gulla), ladies finger, pumpkin etc. Vegetables like carrot, tomato, cauliflower, cabbage are considered as foreign vegetables and are prohibited. Even today some of the orthodox families follow this rule. But most of them now started using all the vegetables along with onion and garlic to some extent. I am one of them. Here goes horse gram rasam recipe in which garlic is used for seasoning purpose.
Meet you all with one more interesting Udupi recipe. Till then bye.
