Poricha kuzhambu is made using veggie and moong dal as the key ingredients. We roast spices and grind with coconut and add to this. This gives a very nice flavour and taste to the poricha kuzhambu. It is a very protein-rich recipe and a balanced meal too. You can serve this with plain rice and spicy curry of your choice. Also, you can serve with any podi rice too.

Poricha kuzhambu | poricha kootu is a very staple in most of the Tamil brahmin families. During fasting days, we serve this with chapati too. This is a no onion no garlic recipe.

  1. Goes well with Thengaai thuvaiyal or pudhinaa thuvaiyal or kothamalli thuvaiyal mixed with rice and this as side dish.Even tastes good with simple paruppu saadham with ghee and this kootu combo.Either Lemon rasam or jeera rasam is divine when Poritcha kootu is made

  2. These are iyer family specials. we often get them in our homes. Nowadays, being a single and staying alone, I cook all these items myself – for me and neighbours as well – thyagarajan
