Poricha Kulambhu and Announcing Vegan Thursday

We a group of food bloggers started a new event and named it as Vegan Thursdays, this event starts from today. The main motto of this event is to share vegan dishes from any cuisine. Most of our Indian foods are vegan, obviously most of our daily routine foods we make or eat are vegan without our knowlegde. 

Veganism means abstaining from the use of animal products. Vegan peoples don't use dairy products,eggs,and any other animal derived substances like honey in their cooking.So we a bunch of food bloggers will be showcasing our vegan foods during thursdays, this event will held twice a month. We will be posting the first week's thursday and last week's thursday of every month. This Vegan Thursday dont have any theme and the choice of the recipes prepared by each blogger being part of this event depend upon their choice.

Then add the sliced eggplant and fry it for a minute follows the chilly powder,coriander powder,turmeric powder and salt.Mix it well and add 11/2 cups of water,let it boil till the vegetables are cooked almost.

After the vegetables are cooked almost add the coconut paste and half cup of water.Boil it till the raw smell disappears.In a a pan do the tempering separately and  add it to the kulambhu and mix it.

Serve with  rice and vegetable poriyal,pappads.
