APPALAM VATHA KUZHAMBHU(PAPPADS IN TAMARIND GRAVY)

Vatha kuzhambhu is always a super hit in my family and generally i make it by adding some veggies to it. We can use okra, capsicum,small onions,drumstick and any veggie of ur own choice. My mom makes with black channa and appalam also.

But after marriage, i never made this with appalam. Last night when i was speaking to my friend, she was asking me the recipe for appalam kuzhambhu.

This taste so yum,when accompanied by parruppu usili.

vatha kuzhambu

INGREDIENTS:

TAMARIND EXTRACT 2 CUPS(USING A MEDIUM LEMON SIZED TAMARIND)
SAMBAR POWDER 2AND1/4 TSP

vatha kuzhambhu

I served with Kootu made with chow chow.

LAST SATURDAY ON 5TH JUNE WE CELEBRATED OUR 10TH YEAR WEDDING ANNIVERSARY AND I MADE MANGO MOUSSE, FOR MY HUBBY AND KIDS.

The recipe i have taken from Vah chef. I followed his method, but i added fresh cream instead of whipping cream. It came out so well and we enjoyed it to the core .
