Notes

  1.  tsp of jaggery can be added to enhance the flavour and give slight sweetness to the Kuzhambu
  2. Adjust spice level according to your taste
  3. I generally add curry leaves while sauting onion but I forgot to add when I took video
  4. Kuzhambu stays good for 2-3 days
  5. Ghee can be used instead of oil
