  • Now add ground mixture, fry for a min. Add tamarind water and salt,  bring it to a boil. Simmer it for 15 mins until kuzhambu turns thick in consistency.
  • Finally add a pinch of jaggery and asafoetida. Turn off the flame.

  • If you don’t have sambar powder, instead add 2 tsp of coriander powder, 1 tsp of red chilly powder.
  • My tamarind is very tangy even in small amount, so I used grape size. If yours is not that tangy, add little more.
  • Gingelly oil adds a nice taste. You can also use any cooking oil.
  • If you have dry ginger, use that instead of using dry ginger powder.
  • Add small onions in place of big onions for great taste.
