Thakkali kuzhambu recipe, south Indian gravy

thakkali-kuzambu-recipe
Thakkali kuzhambu recipe - Thakkali kulambu recipe - tomato gravy for rice! Tangy and yummy gravy with tomato, onion , coconut milk.
Thakkali kulambu/ thakkali kuzhambu – I drool Droolingeven when I say that. I like this a lot but never got chance or had a recipe to try. When I was going through the recipe book mom gave me, this suddenly fell in my eyes. I have scanned this book several times with my eyes for recipes to try, but somehow this recipe has been ignored by me. So at last I tried this and loved it to the core. I had this two times with hot rice the day I made it. Its so yummy and rich with coconut milk in it. Usually the tomato kuzhambu recipe will be with ground coconut and fennel, this one was totally different. And I am sure I would make this often here after. I just followed the recipe as such in the book as I was making it for the first time.

Thakkali Kuzhambu recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Lunch
Prep Time: 20 mins    |  Cook time: 20 mins    Serves: 2

Ingredients

Tomato - 4

Small onion (shallots) - 12

Green Chillies - 10

Sambar powder - 2 & 1/2 tsp

Coconut from - 1/2 of a coconut

Salt - as needed

To temper

Oil - 2-3 tblsp

Mustard - 1 tsp

Curry leaves - A sprig


How to make Thakkali kuzhambu step by step Instructions 

  1. Boil enough water in a vessel and add the tomatoes to keep immersed for 20 seconds to half a minute. Take it out and you should be able to peel off the skin like just we do for potatoes.step 1 thakkali kuzhambu
  2. Grate coconut and grind it with 1/4 cup water and strain/ squeeze to get first milk using a broad metal strainer. Again add 1/4 cup luke warm water to the coconut remain and grind again to extract second milk. step 2 thakkali kuzhambu
  3. Keep both extracted milk separately. Mash the peeled tomatoes well with your hands. Peel the shallots and slice them lengthwise.step 3 thakkali kuzhambu
  4. Heat a kadai/pan with oil and splutter mustard. Add curry leaves,green chillies and onion. Fry until golden spot appears over the onion.step 4 thakkali kuzhambu
  5. Add the second extracted thin coconut milk, 1 & 1/4 cup water, the mashed tomatoes, sambar powder. Boil for 5-6 minutes in medium flame or until desired thick consistency is reached.step 5 thakkali kuzhambu
  6. Lastly add the first extracted coconut milk,salt and boil until oil separates and floats on top.step 6 thakkali kuzhambu

  Notes

  • Use red ripe and tangy tomatoes for best results. (Naatu thakkali)
  • If you feel the tomato is less in tanginess, you can add a tblsp of thick tamarind extract in this.
  • Dont think 10 chillies are too much for this, it will be needed to balance the tanginess.
  • You can replace sambar powder with 1 tsp red chilli powder and 1 & 1/2 tsp of dhaniya powder.
  • If you want it on more spicier side, add more chilli or chilli powder.

Thakkali kuzhambu ready! Who wants tangy, yummy thakkali kuzhambu?

  1. Looks terrific Raks. My mom makes a version of tomato kuruma that I drool over all the time :). The coconut in this kuzhambu reminded me of the kuruma. :)
