thiksani ummana is a common side dish we used to make for dosha and i am enclosing a recipe which my mom-in-low used to make very often...especially for idlies...... it is very hot,tangy,yummy...


boiled potatoes -3nos smashed
onions chopped - 2nos
dry mango pieces -5-6
red chillies soaked in hot water - 10 nos
salt -to taste

for seasoning

mustard -1tsp
coconut oil 2tsp

grind the red chillies into a smooth paste adding enough water. in a kadai put the oil ,add mustard ,when it splutters add chopped onions and fry for a few minutes,add dry mango pieces and ground masala and stire it well.add enough water,remember that this curry is medium careful while adding water.when a boil comes add smashed potatoes into that and boil it till the oil separates.garnish with coconut oil.serve hot with idlies and doshas
