|Tamarind paste||1tbs diluted with 1 cup of water|
For the seasoning
Keep a pan with oil in a medium flame and fry the vadagam and curry leaves then add the onion,saute it for a minute follows the garlic.Fry it till both onion and garlic get slightly transparent.Add the tomato,salt and cook it soft.
- Kuzhambu vadagam can be substituted with a tsp of mustard seeds and1/4tsp of fenugreek seeds.
- Instead of sambhar powder 1/2tsp of chilly powder and 1/2tsp of coriander powder can be used.But adding sambhar powder gives a nice flavor and taste to the kuzhambu.
- Adding coconut paste is important,it balances the spicy and sour taste of the spices used.
