Chinese potato or sambrani gadde is back here after a month. Back in June when I happen to post sambrani gadde curry, people loved it. Those who stay away from Udupi or those who reside in foreign countries where this veggie isn’t available were just missing it. When the recipe is shared in my FB page, there were comments saying “it’s been so long eating this awesomeness”. Sambrani gadde or Chinese potato is such a aromatic veggie that it takes people back to their memory lane. But I am at the center of food happy place because in UAE I get most veggies. And today here comes one more curry using the same veggie i.e sambrani gadde majjige huli. It’s yogurt and coconut based curry and very close to my food loving soul.
Fairly simple recipe but trust me, I love it to the core. Now, when I am in my motherland and with my mother, she cooks all such things that I love. My only job right now is to eat it happily, enjoying the WOW moments of LIFE. Yes, vacationing is a sort of change in pace of life for me. Blog cooking, everyday cooking, cleaning, photography, editing and posting would take a back seat for a month. It’s so wonderful right? Sometimes you need to get out of your routine and change things up in order to sort of kick-start the system back in to thrive mode. Isn’t it guys?
Sambrani gadde majjige huli or Kodakyana has two simple steps. Cooking the veggie, coconut paste preparation and including whisked yogurt. That’s it. Pretty simple. But the Chinese potato (sambrani gadde) has flavor bond in it which cooks aromatically filling the house with smell.
Let me tell you one more thing. In Udupi, this majjige huli is also paired with idli. Those who have tasted would know it.
