Murungakkai Kara Kuzhambu
Murungakkai Kara Kuzhambu is a very spicy South Indian gravy prepared by cooking drumstick in tamarind and spices. It is served as a side dish to Rice. It can also be served as a side dish to Idli and Dosa. As we had drumstick tree in our home, my mom frequently prepares Sambar, vatha kuzhambu or this kara kuzhambu with drumstick. The addition of small onions with drumstick gives a unique taste. Please check below for step by step instructions and pictures for preparing South Indian Vegetarian Murungakkai Kara Kuzhambu
