TOMATO VATHAKUZHAMBHU RECIPE

WITHOUT TAMARIND – NO ONION NO GARLIC RECIPE

Vathakuzhambhu is a my all time favorite recipe and already i have posted my version of vathakuzhambhu with video too. This thakkali kuzhambhu is a unique recipe which is made without tamarind and almost tastes like a chunky tomato thokku. This weekend i made this vathakuzhambhu after a very long time and we all enjoyed with hot rice and poricha kootu.

Hi deniz,
If u don't get sambar powder, just replace red chilli powder- though the taste won't be simliar, but will be good only

Hi.. Any specific reason for adding Toor dal while doing thadka?

Reply
jeyashri suresh March 30, 2016 - 9:57 am

It gives a slight thickness to the gravy and will enhance the flavour of the kuzhambu. Also while eating the rice the bits of the toor dal will taste yum
