A few months back while talking with my friends on a whats app chat, one friend was telling me about this kuzhambu. She told that her mom makes this often and home. She shared the recipe with me the next day. I saved it in my ‘Notes list’, but completely forgot to try it out. A few days back while I was scrolling the ‘Notes list’, I found this recipe.

I tried this easy kadalai paruppu kuzhambu yesterday. We all relished this gravy with dosa. Usually, we make sambar with toor dal or moong dal. This time for a change this no tamarind chana dal kuzhambu. Do give this a try and I am sure you will love it.
