Amshey Godshey Moghem Curry (Sweet & Sour Yellow Cucumber Curry)
1 kg Moghem (Yellow Cucumber)
3 tbsp sugar
1 1/2 tsp salt
6 big flakes of garlic finely chopped
5 tbsp oil
Masala for grinding
3 flakes of garlic
4 Kashmiri chillies
1/4 tsp black peppercorns
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 big onion chopped
1 big lemon sized tamarind
Grind the above ingredients in a grinder to a smooth paste with 2 cups of water.
Wash the grinder with another 2 cups of water and keep it aside.
Wash the Moghem, cut and remove the seeds.
Cut them into 2 inch squares and put 3-4 gashes as shown below.
In a deep pot add the ground masala water, with 1/2 tsp salt, 1 small sliced onion and the cut moghem peices. Boil it for 10 minutes on medium flame.
Now add the ground masala and let the moghem cook for another 10 minutes.
Add sugar, salt (adjust salt & sugar as per your taste)
Once the moghem is tender put off the flame.
In a small frying pan take 5 tbsp oil, heat it. Add the 6 big flakes of garlic finely chopped and fry it till golden brown.
Temper the curry with garlic infused oil.
Serve with plain rice and fried fish. I didn't have any fish so I made dry prawns chutney to go with it.
