This is a popular dish from the flavourful chettinad cuisine.This cuisine is quite famous for its fresh blend of spices and aroma.This is an instant hit at my family.The cashew nuts used gives a silky texture and richness to the curry.Increase or decrease the spiciness up to your taste.Try this curry and let me know your thoughts….

This is a spicy tangy South Indian brinjal/eggplant curry.I am not a big fan of eggplants and truly speaking I never tasted this veggie during my childhood.I will not eat the eggplants but urge my mom to add it to the some curries like mutton kulambu / curry , sundal /kala channa puli kulambu .I love the aroma it gives to the curries..But now I strated loving it and having it frequently.It tastes nice when added to tamarind based curries. Few days before I made Eggplant Stuffed Curry too.I will post that soon.My red chillies are mild so I used more , adjust it as per your taste.My hubby loved this curry so much and hope you too so off you go to the recipe with step by step pictures….

This is a very traditional non-veg recipe.You all heard about the hot spicy tangy South Indian fish curry.We used to buy fresh alive viral meen (butterfish) in India , that tastes heavenly.But I can’t find those here.I learnt this recipe from my dear mom and I loved it and tried it a lot many times.You can use any type of fish to prepare this curry.I tried this kulambu with sankara meen (red snpper) , salmon ,sea bass (koduvai) .This time my hubby bought sprats.I like the little fishes and the taste is also good. We had with of course salmon fry.Lets see the preparation….

Pavakkai is one of my hubby's favourite vegetable preferably as puli kulambu. Besides it is loaded with lots of precious nutrients So i try to include it as much as possible.Most of them avoid this wonderful veggie because of its bitterness .There are many tricks to reduce the bitterness by soaking it in saltwater or in tamarind extract or in curd and also washing it several times in lots of water. I didd'nt soaked it but somehow the bitterness is reduced in this curry because of frying it before adding it to the gravy. It tastes really good even my little one liked it...
Have a try you too will love...

This ia an authentic South Indian Gramathu/village gravy. The recipes prepared with Country chicken are excellent in taste. Whether it is kulambu/gravy or varuval/fry it tastes heavenly. This was our sunday lunch and it was a big hit. This Gravy is prapared with sesame oil and it gives a wonderful flavour to this dish. In my place I can't find it so I am using British Country chicken / Cornish hen. But the taste of the real country style chicken is extraordinary.Now to the recipe...
