Thekera Tenga is a Sour curry from Assamese cuisine. Thekera is a fruit that is dried and used as a souring agent in Assamese dishes. Few pieces of thekera are soaked in warm water and are used in the dishes. However, lemon and tomatoes are also used as souring agents. The tenga ( sour curry) is usually served at the end of a meal. Usually fish is fried and used in the dish, but in this vegetarian version, I have roasted potato slices and added it to the tenga. Simple, rustic and delicious Thekera Tenga can be served along with steaming hot rice or rotis.
Serve Thekera Tenga along with Steamed Rice for a weekday dinner.
