  • sdonthy

    Hi Mullai,

    Thanks for your quick reply. I searched in the Indian stores. But unfortunately i couldn’t find. Any way as i really want to make that dish what is the best alternate spice i can use instead of Black stone flower? Please clarify me.

  • sdonthy

    Hi Mullai,
    Where can i get the black stone flower? could you tell me please?

    • Mullai

      Indian stores are the only hope, if thats hard, then plan to buy a big batch during your next trip to India. (Naattu Marunthu or Ayurvedic medicine shops carry this product)

    I visit your website frequently but this is my first post to you. I find your website very informative and interesting. I like your presentations and recipes as well. I like cooking too and shall post one of my recipes very soon..(may be after I experiment it on myself).

  • Vijitha

    Hi Mullai. Nice recipe. I used to do this with coconut milk.. I’m very curious to know what is that rice. Is it channa kadala?. that will look cream in color right? but this is brown.. epdi?VIJI

    • shan

      Viji,  2 colors of Channa is there…White channa and Black channa (Kala Channa) Black tastes good than  whiteone. Black especially small one tastes good for making kozhambu – shan

      • Vijitha

        Thanks Shan..Going to hunt for this sundal.After knowing that black will taste better than white, i'm shocked.. I never know that black sundal exist.. Thanks for the info. VIJI

    • Mullai

      Hi Viji, its black chick peas / Kala Channa. Had some left over kala channa sundal, used it as a base for my stir fried rice. These things comes in handy and goes well with rich gravies.
