Recipe marathon2# 23th day

Thi method of vathta Kuzhambu will be prepared in hotels. My uncle collected this recipe from a star hotel chef....



Tamarind –lemon size

Shallot -15 nos

Tomato (Small) – 1 no

Coconut milk -1/2 cup

R.chily -1 no

G.chilly -1 no

Ginger –small piece

Garlic –4 pods

Sambar powder – 4 tsp

Curry leaves -7 counts

Sesame oil -3 tsp

Mustard -1 tsp

Fenugreek -1/2 tsp

Any vathal – one hand full


Soak tamarind for 15 minutes & extract its juice. Fry the vathal by adding little oil. Slit g.chilly, crush ginger & garlic. Add oil in a kadai, put mustard, after it spluts add fenugreek, r.chilly, curry leaves, slitted g.chilly,crushed ginger & garlic fry all the ingredients till it shrinks little bit. Add shallot & salt, sauté it till light golden brown color. Now add chopped tomato, stir for a while. Here add extracted tamarind juice, allow it to boil for some seconds & add sambar powder. Leave the Kuzhambu to boil till it reduces its volume. Now add coconut milk & switch of the stove. Finally add fried vathal into the Vaththa kuzhambu. Have it with hot rice…
Note: instead of sambar powder r.chilly powder & dania powder can be used. Adjust salt level when adding Vathal finally, coz vathal itself contain salt.....
