other sorak ingredients

1 Slit Green Chilly
2-3 Kokam
1 Onion
1 Small tomato
1 Small Piece of Ginger

Chop the tomato, onions and ginger and put a pan with some oil on the fire.

Blend the masala ingredients, though the Kokam is in the picture, please note its not supposed to be ground.

Add a little water to help with the grinding

You can begin sauteing the onions.

When you see them gettin brown, add the tomatoes and stir a little.

Once your tomatoes and onions are sauted, you can add the masala .

Remember to stir fry the masala a little bit and then you can choose to add ether coconut milk or water.

Add a pinch of salt, slit one chilly, deseed if you don’t want the spice and add it to the curry.

Add the kokam to the sorak

Stir and bring to a boil, and your Sorak is ready.

As usual, best enjoyed piping hot with rice, dry fish would the accompaniment from the good old days.
