Kumbakonam kadappa recipe | Kadappa recipe, with full video and step by step pictorial instructions.

Kumbakonam kadappa| Kadappa , the name itself is quite new for many of us. It is a very simple gravy which pairs very well with Idli, dosapoori | chapathi. I have heard about this a lot from my cousins but never tasted it at home. My mom’s side this a very popular gravy. Except for my mom, everyone at her home makes this gravy. Somehow I never had a chance to taste this too even I visited my mama’s house. But all my cousins are a very big fan of this Kumbakonam kadappa.

Recently my cousin in US, searched for Kadappa recipe in Jeyashri’s kitchen and he couldn’t find that. So he told me to post the recipe in Jeyashri’s kitchen. My perimma(mom’s elder sister) instructed me on how to make Kumbakonam Kadappa. When I tried it last week, I loved it very much. It went well with idli and we had it for dosa too for dinner too.

Check out my sodhi recipe which is similar to this recipe. Stay tuned for interesting recipes coming up.
