German Turnip Fry / Navil kosu Palya

Also known as knol kol or navilu kosu, it is a very tasty vegetable when cooked as sambar or fry.  Here is the recipe for the fry.

Preparation Time - 10 mins
Cook Time - 15 mins
Serves - 2

Measurements & Ingredients:
  • Tender Navilkosu - 3 medium sized, skin peeled and then cut into small pieces
  • Cumin powder(jeera powder) - 3/4 tspn
  • Oil - 1-2 tblspn
  • Mustard seeds(sasive) - 1 tspn
  • Jeera - 1/4 tspn
  • Curry leaves - a few
  • Red chili(spicy) - 1
  • Turmeric powder - 1/8 tspn
  • Salt
  • Asafoetida - a pinch

 Heat oil in a pan and to this add mustard seeds, cumin, curry leaves, red chili and asafoetida.  Then add the chopped navilukosu, turmeric powder, salt, little water and cook it covered on low medium heat for about 10 mins or until tender and the water evaporates.
Stir occasionally.  

Add jeera powder and mix well.  Cook it for another 5 mins and it is ready to be served with Chapathi/roti or Rice.

What's different in this recipe?
Most of them I have heard is, they follow the same procedure except for adding cumin powder(jeera powder) or some add both dhaniya-jeera powder.  I liked it when using only jeera powder.  Try this once and let me know your feedback :)  I personally felt this jeera powder gives a totally different and nice taste to the dish.
