That's exactly how I make puli kuzhambu... delicious and my mom likes it with nallennai too. The rasavangi looks awesome. I'm definitely trying that.. since i usually make olan or morkuzhambu with poosinikai.

Kuzhambu and kootu are perfect combo! The koootu masala sounds tasty!
Ahh! So this is how Rasavangi is made! Looks perfect and seems like I will be trying it out sometime.
Ashgourd rasavangi is something new. my mom makes eggplant rasavangi. Will definitely try this as i love ashgourd. Nice pictures, btw.
we too make this rasavangi and we add bolied kondakadalai or boiled peanuts.poondu kulambhu i too make,as u told if we mix it with rice along with sesame oil it will taste very nice. And as usual the way u cut the veg is really nice
i have been looking for poondu kuzhambu recipe. will bookmark it to try. and rasavangi is also something i wanted to try. both dishes look yummy.
I have heard of Kathirikai Rasavangi not Poosanikai...this is new Rajeshwari.I liked ur detail description along with the snaps.I loved the first snap...its really neat:)
I love poondu kulambu, especially with piping hot 'mallipoo' idlis:-) Urs looks perfect!

Bothe the dishes look delicious...
Thanks for the step by step procedures for the rasavangi...I love poondu kuzambu, I should try out both these soon :)

Spicy! We call it Kaddu,I like all the spices you used in the curry.The tangy kuzhamdu must taste like heaven with ghee rice:)
Rajeswari, whenever u read the previous comment, pls do update method-tamarind. I changed my mind, after the ash. gourd boiled ..i added the tamarind extract, then added the ground coarse pwdr..it was tasty n different ..flavor lent to ashg. from masala was superb! tks for sharing dear!

Thank you so much :)
One can only see your passion towards cooking from all this description and pictures. As always "Keep doing the great work "
Did you dry roast or roasted in oil for the ingredients in the table roast and grind in the ash gourd gravy recipe
Did u roast in oil or dry roast the ingredients in the table roast & grind in ash gourd gravy recipe
I used 1/2 tsp oil
I could never bring my kuzhambu to this consistency..this is amazing defn. will try
I tried it today and it came out very good. I also added a very small piece of jaggery. Thanks for the recipe:-)
very nice poondu kulambu...it came well when i tried exactly with what you gave
very nice....tasted very good...pictures tempted me to try this out and came very well...
Lots of hugs to you raji..I made the best poondu kulambhu yesterday
hey i tried preparing this in electric rice cooker as i stay in hostel but the kolubu is watery.im not getting the thickness.can you please tel me how to get the thickness
Try using less water while u prepare tamarind extract. 1/2 tsp rice flour dissolved in 1 tor 2 tablespoon of water may help. Also corn flour can be used for thickening.
hahahahaha! "Is this honey or kuzhambu?" What love, what joy! Oh the pleasure of being a child, the pleasure of having mother love so crazily..... God bless you!
Hi RajiThanks for your mouthwatering recipies..I am a beginner in cooking and I have tried some of your recipies that turned out great..I am gonna try this poondu kulambu also,but before that I have a doubt whether to add tomato or not..How did u achieve the thickness without adding tomato?I am new to this kara kulambu variety as I belong to southern part of tamilnadu where we use more coconut in our cooking..My MIL in chennai adds pureed tomato to kara kulambu and taht gives the thickness..But the kulambu with more tomato is so tangy and I dont like it so much...I tried potato,brinjal kara kulambu with one tomato and some shallots of onion,but I couldnot achieve the thickness even if i simmer for so many minutes..My kulambu is watery and it tastes sweet..Whats wrong in my kulambu?How to get the thickness like urs...Pls help me,I could not make good kara kulambu for my husband who love it..Pls help me..
HI Viji, it depends on your sambar powder. are you using sambar powder or red chilli powder alone? If you use pure red chilli powder, add some coriander powder too for thickness. Also the key is to use more tamarind and more sambar powder wich will give you thickness. Hope this will help you. Also boil for long time until it gets thick.
