Doddapatre Tambli/Tambuli

The summer is already hit to Bangalore and its so bad as if we are in mid summer. sun is so hot till 5 in the evening and the saddest part is I cannot take my little one outside for a walk or let him play outside before that. he feels so bored and becomes cranky. but I amt oo scared to send him out.  Back in home town summer is always bad but in Bangalore first time we are feeling so hot.however we curse or talk about the weather we cannot do anything for it but to live with it. at least we can cook something which will help us to get over the heat.
My today's recipe is Tambli / Thambuli a curd based dish usually does not need much of cooking and cools your body. Ayurveda medicine depicts tambli a lot. I made tambli out of home grown Doddapatre (Coleus Aromaticus), Patharchur (Hindi), Panikkurukka (Malayalam), Pan Ova (Marathi), Kapuravalli (Tamil).

Doddapatre / Sambrani leaves Tambli

Preparation Time: 10 min
Cooking Time: No cooking
Serves: 2-4
Shelf Life: one day


20-15 doddapatre leaves
1 tsp jeera seeds
1 green chilli
1/ 2 tsp jaggery
1.5 tsp butter
Salt per taste
1/ 2 cup coconut grated
1 / 4 cup sour curd

For the Seasoning

1 tsp oil
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 red chilli broken
1 strand curry leaves


Wash and dry the leaves using the kitchen towel. Roughly chop the leaves and add the leaves to the hot butter in a pan and fry till the raw smell of the leaves goes off. (Note: The Leaves has a pungent smell).

Add coconut, jaggery, salt, green chilli, jeera seeds and little lukewarm water and grind it into a smooth paste. Add the curd and water and bring the tambli into dropping consistency. Add the tampering and serve immediately.

Always store it in fridge since there is no cooking involved.
