Kadala Curry for Puttu | Kerala Style

Kadala Curry for Puttu
Puttu and Kadala curry is a traditional Kerala Breakfast recipe. Kadala curry is prepared from Dark brown \ black channa. My mom prepares the puttu podi in home. I prepared the Ragi puttu from store bought puttu podi. As a kid, I love to have puttu with sugar and banana. My grandma prepares this kadala curry as a side dish to puttu. This Kadala Kuzhambu is cooked in coconut oil. Please check below for step by step instructions and pictures for preparing Traditional South Indian Kadala Kuzhambu for Puttu.
