I love Pulikuzhambu, Poondu Kuzhambu and all the varities of curries that are prepared with Shallots/Onions/Garlic/Tamarind & some basic Indian spices. Especially when a time like this lockdown where we don’t have access to many vegetables you can prepare this curry and keep it refrigerated for a week. It stays good for 2-3 days even without refrigerating. Have tried two different methods of preparing Poondu Kuzhambu. You can search them in my blog.
I wish I had shallots the day when I made this kuzhambu. Neverthless it tasted great with Red Onions too. If you have shallots I would strongly recommend you to add add 10-12 of them instead of one big onion. To be honest nothing matches the flavor of namma ooru Chinna Vengayam 😋😋
