ARACHUVITTA VATHAL KUZHAMBU | VATHA KUZHAMBU RECIPES

Vathal kulambhu | vathakuzhambhu is an easy dish which we normally make at home almost once or twice a week. I have already few collections of kuzhambhu varieties here. This arachuvitta vatha kuzhambhu is a must try one with freshly ground spices and tasted exactly like the one served in weddings as an accompaniment for CURD RICE. I got this recipe from my friend’s mil who gave the recipe of Kalyana rasam . Special thanks to you Kalyani mami for giving me such nice recipes.

    1. May be dried something is a vathal..Eg. Dried biiter gourd is a bittergourd vattal (pavakka/karela vattal), or dried mango is mango vattal (Aam/manga vattal).

  12. I know this may be a real silly question but can this be made without vattal? How important are the vatted as I don't think I have access to them. Curry looks super delicious. Thanks for sharing.
