  • Pressure cook for 2 whistles and simmer for about 5 minutes & turn off the flame.
  • After the cooker has cooled & released the pressure open it & put it back on flame.
  • If there is very little or no water, just add little water, but not too much.
  • (This curry is supposed to be a bit thick & not watery.)
  • Add the chilli powder & salt. Stir well & simmer for 7-8 minutes.
  • Add the ground coconut. (Instead of grinding, grated coconut can be added, both tastes equally good.)
  • In a separate pan heat 2-3 tsp of oil for seasoning.
  • When the oil is hot, add mustard seeds. When they pop add the broken red chilles.
  • Stir for a second & add the curry leaves.
  • Add the seasoning to the green gram curry, simmer for 2-3 minutes before switching the flame off.
