Paruppu urundai kuzhambu recipe | Urundai kulambu recipe | Kulambu recipe


Paruppu urundai kulambu is a very special and delicious kuzhambu variety. The tasty dal balls in a tangy gravy is a wonderful dish for a plain rice. It is a famous South Indian traditional Kuzhambu variety. Some traditional dishes are so close to our heart. This Paruppu Urundai kuzhambu is one such recipe. My mother makes this awesome dish and she has her own touch or should I say secret ingredient, not that i know of, but somehow her version of this kuzhambu tastes much more yummier.

I love it sooo much and I am addicted to this aroma. No extra side-dish is required for this. Just rice dunked in this gravy, with alternate bites of lentils balls is a fulfilling meal to me.. Left-over gravy goes well with idli/dosa in the night. Your kids deserve this protein-rich treat ! This is also recommended for dads-to-be.

I used to be so fascinated about the gravy being cooked in that tiny kitchen and on some days, she even let me stir it. What good, beautiful days those were!
