Poricha Kuzhambu is a delectable traditional South Indian style Kulambu(gravy) variety made with mixed veggies, toor dal and special coconut masala paste. We don't add tamarind extract for this kulambu. Moreover we add special Kulambu thalippu vadagam for tempering, this enhances the flavour of the poricha kuzhambu. We can add any veggies of our choice but traditionally village vegetables like drumsticks,brinjal,broad beans etc. are added. This Poritha Kulambu is best suited for rice but can also be served with idli,dosa etc..Check out how to make this yummy poricha kuzhambu recipe below.

✍️If you don't have kulambu thalippu vadagam you just add mustard seeds and curry leaves for tempering.

✍️Instead of toor dal you can use green gram dal.

✍️This kulambu thickens over time so adjust consistency accordingly(remove from fire in slightly watery consistency).
