Like nowadays I collect all the recipes that get published every week in FOOD section of online newspaper. So right now this pile of newspaper recipes has turned like a big, thick cookbook and I always refer it whenever I need to cook something out of the box. The winner recipes always find a space here like this one : hog plum curry without coconut.
Hog plum looks very similar to tiny mango but when it comes to pulp, hog plum has very less of it. The seed is tooo big and fibrous with thin skin casing. The scraped hog plum simmered in some water turns pale and soft in a jiffy which is then seasoned with some garlic, chilly like spices. The heat from green chilly and garlic, the sweetness from jaggery and tarty hog plum makes the curry a rocking a side dish.
The ease of cooking hog plum curry is: it has no coconut and no lentils. But it has the savory taste that lasts in your mouth for some time.
