MILAGU KUZHAMBU

MILAGU KUZHAMBU

This is a tasty and healthy South Indian Kuzhambu. In this variant I have not used garlic. The main ingredients used are Whole Black Pepper and Tamarind. This has a long shelf life. To combat cold during rainy season this is very useful. This goes well with white rice with a tea spoon of ghee or gingelly oil.
