Posted on

Pathrade is perhaps the most popular dish of the konkani people – I put it up before and you all loved it. A derivative of pathrate is the shallow fried pathrade and yet another is the Pathrade upkari/curry which is what I have for you today. Fresh pathrade can’t be broken into pieces hence we prepare this dish the following day. Here it is.

What you need to have:

1. Pathrade pieces – 3 cups

2. Finely chopped Onion – 3/4 cup

3. Chopped Tomatoes – 2 tablespoons

4. Chopped Garlic pods – A few

5. Turmeric powder – 1 teaspoon

6. Chilli powder(less spicy) – 1 teaspoon

Ingredients of Seasoning

What you do with what you have:

1. Just break the pathrade into pieces and keep it aside as shown in the image 1.

2. Wash, peal and chop onions very fine and also peal and chop garlic pods fine. Wash and chop tomatoes also fine and keep it aside seperately as shown in the image 2.

3. Place a skillet with 4-5 teaspoons of cooking oil in it on a medium flame. On heating add chopped garlic pods from step 2 to it and when fried add chopped tomatoes from step 1 and fry it for about 2-3 minuites. Now add chopped onions too from step 2 to it adding required quantity of salt to it. (Already pathrade contains salt)

    Hi aunty,
    Guess upkari goes well without addin tomatoes as well,just onions is good enough since you would already add tamarind for pathrade. I didn’t like the tomato addition on this part.Rest is okay.
