Since i was curious to know the meaning of Gado Gado I was browsing thru and found 'Gado' means 'Mix'.I also came to know that there are different versions of this either using other vegetables , shrimp,tofu etc in this along with beans or the consistency using coconut milk while cooking.. like sort of gravy for rice.
here is aunty's recipe:
Garlic-1 or 2 pods
Tamarind pulp-approximately 1 tbs
Jaggery water-approximately 1tbs
Soy sauce-approximately 1 tsp
Salt- to taste
VEGETABLES For SALAD:
1)Chop all the vegetables. Steam cook beans and Potato(with little salt)
2)Dry grind all the ingredients for sauce to smooth paste using little water.
3)Heat little(about 1 tsp)oil and fry till it lets out oil.
4)Add tamarind and jaggery water and cook. Add more water to get required consistency.(I think this is where they use coconut milk and cook to get gravy of version of Gado Gado)Add soy sauce mix well and cook till required consistency.(If making curry sort of dish mix vegetables and cook for couple of minutes and cook.)
5)For salad/poriyal add the sauce as topping and mix.
Hope u enjoy this Indian version of Gado gado
