Mor kuzhambu and paruppu usili is a classic combo in Tamil Brahmin house. When i got married, most of the sundays will have Vazhaipoo paruppu usili and vatha kuzhambu. Though i love both the combo of vatha kuzhambu and mor kuzhambu for paruppu usili, most of the time i end making in Vatha kuzhambu only for paruppu usili.
The family loves both the combos and for them the veggie in the paruppu usili matters, especially the kids. We make usili with beans, cabbage, vazhaipoo, methi leaves and avarakkai. But some how it is difficult to make the kids vazhaipoo usili. So i always make kootu with vazhaipoo and they happily finish that.
Coming to today’s lunch menu, we have a simple platter but yet a very popular combo.
