Kara Kuzhambu

by LalithaSivaram
Kara Kuzhambu or spicy sambar is a delicious dish served in hotels with South Indian meals. The spicy flavor and taste of powdered Bengal gram and fenugreek seed mixture enriches Kara Kuzhambu. The dish can be easily prepared at home and our well illustrated Kara Kuzhambu will surely guide you. Kara Kuzhambu can be enriched with a combo of nutritious veggies like drumstick, okra or brinjal as per choice. I would personally go in for okra and brinjal which makes an excellent combination. Adding coconut milk in the end renders flavor and thickens spicy Kara Kuzhambu. Enjoy tasty Kara Kuzhambu with white steamed rice.
