This is not any fancy Italian dish! Beluli thambli is common in Karnataka. It's made from garlic and yogurt and is usually a side dish (just like palya/porial/gojju) and is eaten with rice. It takes less than 10 mins to prepare and is very healthy (according to my mom!). Since this is going to Mahima's 15 mins cooking, I am not going to waste time with my non-stop yada yada..
2 garlic cloves
1.5 tsp jeera
2 tbsp coconut
1-2 dried red chillies ( I use something called North Indian chillie its spicy as hell. If you are using byadgi or something else you can increase the quantity)
1 cup yogurt
Heat 1 tsp oil in a pan. Add the garlic and saute till it turns golden. Now add the red chillie and jeera saute till it changes colour. Cool and blend the above with coconut and 1/4 cup yogurt to a fine paste. Add the remaining yogurt and salt. Mix well. You can do a tadka if you wish, I usually don't - did it just this one time!
Since I am anti-rice, I drink this just like that, it is cool (due to the yogurt) and garlicky!
PS- my kannada is kinda wierd, I write like how I speak- the spellings of thambli and beluli might be different!!
