KAPPA AND ONION CHUTNEY
Serves 4This is my favorite Kerala-style kappa preparation. The toughest part is peeling and chopping the kappa. The rest is a breeze!
2 tablespoons salt
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons finely chopped red onion
3/4 teaspoon finely chopped serrano chili
1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 1/2 tablespoons water
5 curry leaves (optional)
Add the kappa and cook until fork tender, about 10 minutes.
