This thick, tangy and spicy curry is best with steaming hot rice..Once in a month Appa used to take us to movies during weekend..Mostly we watch a morning show movie in either of these theatres PVT,Ram/Muthuram,Poornakala and then to have full meals at Hotel Bharani or Vasantham. They serve the best karakuzhambu/poondu kuzhambu..I love hotel style Karakuzhambu..The quality of food,quantity,taste and an overall experience is far better than ‘so called’ popular restaurant chains like HSB or Sangeetha or A2B..
I keep trying different combination of ingredients & different recipes..There are so much more you could do with humble Onion, Garlic and other basic Indian spices.
Coming back to the recipe you need 2 whole fresh cloves of garlic. It is better to prepare this curry in sesame oil/nallaennai. However if you don’t have this in stock then replace it with your usual cooking oil. Last saturday I prepared this curry along with some arbi roast curry leaf rice. Will try to link those recipes too.
