Right now obsessed with Konkani food. The simple food cooked in Konkani style is fascinating me in this season. So here comes quite popular food tendli upkari, a stir fry that has minimum ingredients but tastes too great. In Konkani language upkari always refers to stir fry (palya) and it’s staple food in every day meal. Veggie eating goals have been achieved through this. Isn’t it?
This tendli mixed with tender cashews is traditionally prepared as upkari. But I have used normal cashews soaked in water as a replacement of tender ones. Because it is hard to get them in UAE. Nevertheless taste is more or less same. The softened or tender cashew gets along with tendli perfectly well. I loved eating this stir fry with rice-rasam combo.
The recipe is quite straight forward. Like all other stir fry, the tendli is cooked in tempering. When it is half done, softened cashews are included. Salt and green chilly goes as per taste desired. Coconut in generous quantity finally tops up the tendli upkari. If you haven’t tasted this way, just give a try once and know the difference it makes.
