  1. Ananya Mahadevan

    Is this a side dish or can be used like a main course?

  2. Hi Ananya,

    It is a main dish like sambar etc. We can mix with rice and eat. When we prepare poricha kuzhambu, some hot curry like potato fry or yam fry will go well with it. Ofcourse simple appalam or koozhvadam is perfect match for this kuzhambu. Also we can have it as side dish for Vatha kuzhambu or any hot kuzhambu.

  3. Thanks for this dish dear…. I tried this recipe with Keerai Masiyal and Karuvadam, got nothin but applauds…
