Kathirikai Kara kuzhambu

Kara Kuzhambu is very rare at home. i usually prepare ennai kathrikaai, but today, i wanted to prepare side dish for idli, so thought kara kuzhambu will go well with idli's than ennai kathrikaai and prepared it. It tasted so good with idli's. yet to have it with rice;)

Brinjal Curry


Heat 3 tbsp of Oil in a Pan, add mustard and let it pop. add fenugreek seeds and fry them and add curry leaves and fry it too.

Add Garlic and small onions to the pan and fry them till they are almost cooked. add the chopped tomatoes and mix well with the onions.
