Manga,Murungakaai,Paalakottai Kuzhambu/Raw Mango,Drumstick,Jackfruit Seeds Dal Gravy - A Kongu Nadu Special

Did i told you, i came back home with a bunch of Tamil magazine supplements i collected during my three months stay in India. I love going through those supplements and try to recreate many different dishes from those supplements. Today recipe is also from Aval Vikatan supplement called 30 Kongu Nadu Dishes, while going through this supplement i got hooked immediately to this dish. This dish is called kuzhambu but trust me this dish doesnt goes for the famous ingredient tamarind we usually use for making kuzhambu. Its a dal based kuzhambu,sounds interesting na.

This kuzhambu is completely a different one with mild spices which doesnt hurt even a toddler's tummy.This dish is just spiced with a grounded paste of coconut and green chillies and the mild sourness from the raw mango. Obviously you need a spicy side dish to enjoy along with this delicious kuzhambu. If you want a very mild ,spiceless,different kuzhambu, i'll definitely suggest this dish to you.This post goes  for the CC Challenge of the month.
