This is one of the curry I liked my sister in law Leelakka. She is one of the best cook whom I have come across. She used to prepare tasty curries, patrodes and many more dishes. Though she gets lots of help from others around while cooking and we do get irritated by her nature. But once the dishes are ready all our irritation disappear and we do enjoy the dish very much.
Coming back to EErulli gojju/curry, I have used onions/eerulli, fresh fried spices, jaggery and tamarind.

This curry can be boiled nicely and made into thick paste to use it next day. (It taste yum). Adding more /less jaggery is optional. We udupians like little more sweet in some curries.
