Vendhaya Kuzhambu is a South Indian tamarind based gravy made with fenugreek seeds. I’m big fan of வத்தல் குழம்பு, kara kuzhambu varieties… its almost a staple at home and shows up atleast twice or thrice a week. Definitely veg days calls for a simple kara kuzhambu with kootu poriyal kind of meal and that’s when this fenugreek kuzhambu made it to the table…
Here’s something hearty and healthy for these cold wintry days. Usually or mostly Black eyed peas makes us think of a sundal recipe or quick salad recipe. But they pair well with gravies too. They are real friendly with most common veggies like brinjal, bottlegourd and drumstick. Moreover you don’t have to break your head about pre-soaking overnight, these are softer dried peas and require just about 10 minutes of soaking time. Here’s a light version of kara kuzhambu recipe made with black eyed peas and drumstick which when accompanied by plain rice and appalam will complete a full course meal.
