Recipe by SUSMITA
"I don't know that that many people know this dish, but once you try it, you will want to know how to make it. This is a classic Andhra dish that is much loved in our house. My mother makes the best Patholi I have ever eaten; this is her recipe. Serve with hot rice and ghee. Patholi is dry and works very well with Pulusu pacchadi (Andhra sweet-sour stew) and avakaya (Andhra mango pickle)

split Bengal gram (chana dal)
water as needed
green chile peppers
salt to taste
skinned split black lentils (urad dal)
dried red chile peppers, broken into pieces
fresh curry leaves
chopped fresh cilantro
Flavors are good, but mine required about double the cooking time, and I never did manage to turn the dal into a "paste," even after 8 hours of soaking. We ended up with a tasty chana dal dish, but I assume the texture was "wrong" since I never achieved that paste. I might make this again, even so.
