It was an average dish. But if we add curd in the beginning stage with the kumbalanga, water and salt after boiling the water and curd got seperated. So I think we have to cook kumbalanga, water and salt and then add curd along with the coconut milk.

ShyamaYou are right. First cook kumbalanga with water and salt only. Once it is cooked, then add curd


Hi Dhanya Your recipe sounds good....Should we cook the kumbalanga together with curd? Please comment.....
