This recipe if cooked is too good to resist from tasting. My amma would make this at home, & i love having this Kuzhambu till the last drop leaves the bowl.. I am an addict to spicy foods so i am a lover of pulikaichal, vathal Kuzhambu, etc... These recipes don't need any side dishes as it contains everything required into itself. Still we can have this Vathal Kuzhambu with Aplams/papads. We can even taste this Kuzhambu with any kinds of breakfast items like dosai, idli, upma,and even chapatis.
