Otane is dry green/yellow peas. Randayi is a sidedish with coconut and is watery in consistency. Otane randayi is one of my all time favorite dish. Mainly because it has breadfruit in it. We make a lot of different such randayis with the same base(coconut, chilies), but depending on the vegetable or beans used in it, all of them taste very different.
Few days back, I found a fresh breadfruit in Indian store. But I have heard they are readily available in frozen section of most of the Indian stores.
Soak dry peas in water overnight. Cook peas in pressure cooker. Cook breadfruit with 2 cups of water (since it cooks very fast, do not cook in pressure cooker).
Grind coconut with red chilies to a very smooth paste.
Add the paste to cooked peas and breadfruit. Add kokum, salt, slightly crushed teppal (crush teppal in 1 tbl spn of water and add. Do not crush it completly). Cook for around 8-10minutes.
Serve as a sidedish with rice.
