Aatu Kudal Kulambu / Goat Intestine Curry

Kudal Kulambu is a traditional recipe of Tamil Nadu. This is one of my mom’s best signature dish and this is prepared right in her kitchen. I really love it so much, but yet some people have a dislike over this yummy curry. If you ask me if its prepared in the correct way then it will not have any smell and that’s the main reason for dislike I guess . And If you taste the curry once sure you are going to love it like I do. This pairs fantastic with plain white rice / Idli / Dosa. And this goat intestine is a good remedy for mouth ulcer. Whenever I got those irritating sores then my mom used to make this Kudal Kulambu.  And after having this curry I really felt better. When I was small whenever my dad buy this goat intestine its a very huge work for my mom to clean those intestines. But now a days its not a big deal. We used to buy this goat intestine from our near by mutton stall. And it is thoroughly cleaned and chopped like usual meat. So we never have to bother about cleaning anymore. Then cleaning under normal water like any other meat is enough. Always make sure the goat intestine is cleaned properly before proceeding to cook. Lets see how to prepare this authentic Kudal Kulambu / Goat Intestine Curry….

Are you bored of usual side for Idli/Dosa then this instant sambar will be a good alternative. Sambar without any dal , interesting right. Try this recipe and you will sure be amazed with the outcome. This is so easy to prepare and also tastes good. This Sambar pairs good with Venpongal / Ghee Pongal too.

The original recipe calls for some more extra tamarind, but I felt that will be more tangy for me so I reduced to my tastebuds. If  you like more tanginess then increase the addition of tamarind. Lets see the recipe….
