Bamboo shoot, hog plum and green gram Curry!

This one is my mother’s special and I dedicate this to my mom and all moyar relative’s of mine.


1small piece of bamboo shoot clean and sliced.

1cup sprouted green gram

2 hog plum

1 cup grated coconut

1 tbsp corriander powder

1tsp chilli powder

1/2 tsp turemric powder

4 flakes garlic

1/2 tsp Cummin / jeera

1 small onion

Salt to taste

Curry leaves to garnish


Cook the green gram and Bamboo shoot in 1 cup of water and turmeric till the green gram is soft. Please note bamboo shoot will not become soft, it will remain crispy.

Except the curry leaves grind all the other ingredients to a fine paste.

When the green gram is soft add the ground paste, salt and bring to boil. Switch the fire off and garnish with curry leaves.

The curry has a very distinct flavour of bamboo shoot and I totally love it.

Curry goes well with rice, dosa, bread or roti.
