Manathakkali Keerai Tambli

Tambli is a speciality dish from Karnataka. It is similar to the pachadi made in Tamilnadu. It is actually derived from the words "Tampu Huli" in Kannada,which means cold gravy. Tambli can be made with palak, drumstick leaves,  onions, curry leaves, coriander leaves, ginger, bell peppers/capsicum etc. 

This Tambli is made with Manathakkali Keerai ( Kaage Soppu in Kannada and Black night shade or Sunberry in English). Manathakkali Keerai is extremely beneficial for mouth ulcers and stomach ulcers. This recipe brings back childhood memories. We used to love having this with rice during hot summer days. I am sure everyone will love this simple and healthy recipe.


1 cup finely chopped Manathakkali keerai
1 tablespoon coconut
1 green chilli
1 teaspoon jeera
2 to 3 black peppers
2 cups whisked yogurt or buttermilk
1 teaspoon oil 

for tadka

2 teaspoons oil
2 red chillies
½ teaspoon mustard seeds
10 to 12 curry leaves


Heat oil, add the greens, green chilli, jeera, black pepper and saute till it is cooked and soft.

Add coconut and saute for  a few minutes. 

Keep the mixture aside to cool down. 

Grind to a fine paste by adding a little water if required. Mix the paste with yoghurt/buttermilk.

Heat oil, add mustard seeds. When it starts spluttering, add red chillies and curry leaves. Serve with steamed rice.
