Wash the chikkudukayalu throughly.
Cut the edges of the chikkudukayalu and peel off the fiber. Split and open the chikkudukayalu to check for any worms. Cut them into pieces around half inch size. Repeat the same process for all the chikkudukayalu.
Add the chopped chikkudukayalu to the pressure cooker. Also add chili powder, turmeric and salt.
Add 1/2 cup of water to the cooker, place the lid and pressure cook for 1 whistle.
When the pressure goes off, remove the lid. Chikkudukayalu is nicely cooked. If there is any excess water, cook on a high flame for 4-5 mins.
Take a frying pan, add oil. When heated add mustard seeds, cumin seeds when starts cracking, add urad dal, minced garlic, red chilies and curry leaves. Fry them until curry leaves turns crisp.
Now, add cooked chikkudukayalu and mix well. Adjust salt as per your taste.
Finally, add 1 tbsp of dry coconut powder or you can also use freshly grated coconut. Here I have used dry coconut powder but I recommend to use freshly grated coconut as it gives a very nice taste to the fry.
Mix well and fry for 2-3 mins to get the nice coconut flavor.
Chikkudukaya fry is ready to serve. Serve hot with white rice or roti.
