I got this recipe from my friend swarna ..She had learnt this from a chidambaram cook.I have tried this 3 times so far. The recipe for gothsu powder is so simple. We can make it once & store for weeks. I am a big fan of brinjal but my hubby hates it.The good thing about this recipe is my husband liked it a lot and gave approval to make it often . The consistency of this gothsu should be very thick like a paste but we love to have it in semi gravy consistency. So please make it as u like..It tastes the best when made with sambar onions.Use small onions only.. I heard this is the best accompaniment for ven pongal.But we had with idli .Please go through this post for more details about this chidambaram gothsu. I referred it for additional info .. For gothsu powder , i followed my friend’s recipe but i saw so many varieties adding methi & channa dal.Anyways it tasted great..Please have a look at the notes section too.. Do try and let me know how u like it ..
If u want to try kumbakonam style gotsu , do refer this post.
For large quantity (to grind n store)
