For the day 2 of Blogging Marathon #60,themed under family recipes is Vatha Kulambhu.Vatha kulambhu can be made in many ways with or with no onion and garlic,freshly ground spice powder or sambar powder.
Already I have shared my mom's version of no onion garlic vatha kulambhu with manathathakkali vathal.
Coming to today's version its made with sun dried turkey berry(sunda vathal) and mango(maa vathal).Also it is made with sambar powder.As we prefer our vatha kulambhu to be on the thicker side I made it slightly thicker.Consistency is personal preference and also the addition of maa vathal is optional.
My mom used a little bit of red chilly powder along with sambar powder to get a nice color.I got my last batch of mom's homemade vathal during my India trip.While making this kulambhu I was so emotional and going to miss her home made goodies.Lets move on to the recipe...
- As the dried vathal also has salt,so keep an eye on while adding the salt.
- The consistency is personal choice.
- After adding all the spice powder mix it well and keep the flame low to avoid burning of powders.
- Here I cut the onion and garlic into 2 as the size was slightly bigger.If the size is small you can add it as such.
