I had cooked Caldine Fish the other day , and made extra Caldine Masala Paste to try the vegetarian version which came out delicious ! Potatoes and Onions were my choice of veggies to be used - and yes one lonely Baingan in the fridge too . Here is what I did .
Caldine Curry Paste:
1 Measuring Cup Coriander Greens - The recipe uses mainly leaves , I added stems too as thats where flavours are.
1/2 Coconut Grated.
10-12 Mint Leaves.
4-6 Green Chilies - I added 8.
1 Heaped Teaspoon Roasted Coriander Seeds.
1 Teaspoon Jeera .
4-6 Cloves Garlic.
1 Tablespoon Concentrate Imli.
1 Teaspoon Haldi Powder.
On a sil butta / grinder make a paste of the above.Heat oil , take one onion chopped , saute , add additional minced garlic 1 teaspoon , when onions soften add the caldine paste and cook gently till you see some oil.Your paste is ready and can be kept in the fridge for a week or so.
Caldine Potato Onion Curry.
4 Large Potatoes - Peeled and boiled - Cube when cool.
2 Onions - Slice Slightly Thick lengthwise.
4 Tablespoons Caldine Paste ( adjust ).
2 Cups Water - or use some water some coconut milk.
Salt as needed.
Dried Red Chilies / Fresh Green Chilies - Optional
Heat oil , add whole chilies ( optional ) , sauté onions and boiled potatoes for 3-4 minutes , now add in caldine paste.
Gently cook for another 2-3 minutes , gradually add in water/coconut milk to get the desired amount of curry,
Enjoy with red Goan rice !
