Inji Kari is easily described as a sweet and sour ginger sauce. This particular recipe was my father in law’s favorite, and my mother in low made sure it was on the table for lunch every day for more than ten years. I like to remember this recipe by his name; we used to call him ‘Acha’.
Heat oil in a heavy pan, add the mustard seeds, when it splutters add the red chili, curry leaves, then the minced ingredients(ginger, shallots and green chili), fry on low flame till light brown, remove from flame
