POONDU KUZHAMBHU RECIPE
Poondhu kuzhambhu | Garlic kulambhu is an authentic chettinad recipe . Though i have tasted this many times at my friend’s place during my school days, never know how to make poondu kuzhambhu. When a reader asked for this recipe i casually asked my sister whether she knows this recipe of chettinad poondu kuzhambhu she immediately told the recipe . I tried it few days back and enjoyed with rice and Kootu. We love to have any coconut based curry or kootu for spicy gravies.

You can add, but add little. too much will spoil the taste

Can we add cooked toor dhaal/ moong dhaal to this ??

Reply
jeyashri suresh August 11, 2014 - 7:53 am

No, the taste will not be good. Instead you can boil toor dal and nicely cook it . Mix with rice and ghee and make this gravy asan accompaniment
