gramathu kozhi kuzhambu

If you follow the exact method as I described, you can definitely get a very nice flavorful, spicy and tasty chicken kuzhambu. It will be in a pakka village style. I have seen most of the grannies using the same recipe. They don't include cardamom or other whole spices. They keep the masala and method very very simple. At the same time, there is no compromise made in the taste. For best results, we can use shallots and nattu thakali. If you don't have them handy, nothing to worry. We can also proceed with regular onions and tomatoes. The very nice flavor we get while pressure cooking would really step up the hunger. Hot steamed rice with this kind of village style kuzhambu will definitely be a superhit.Including this kind of simple protein rich dishes help you to increase VITAMIN B12 and PROTEIN. It satisfies the tastebuds. At the same time make a healthy meal too.
