  1. For extra flavoring can saute shallots and garlic, add them to the kuzhambu
  2. If you prefer a watery kuzhambu use a 1:1 ratio of thick curd to water
  3. Avoid cooking the spice powder for a long time as it might turn bitter
  4. if you don't have fenugreek powder,  you can add fenugreek seed while tempering
  5. Coconut oil gives a nice flavor to the kuzhambu so preferably use it for the kuzhambu
  6. Adjust the chilli according to your spice
  7. Ginger powder can be added along with other powders
  8. For yellowish kuzhambu add extra turmeric powder
