Poricha Kuzhambu

Poricha kuzhambu is a kind of sambar variety with no tamarind extract. To me, poricha kuzhambu tastes inbetween our regular sambar and arachuvitta sambar :)

  11. I'm intrigued by seeing all these different kinds of samabars and rasamas once I started blogging. To me there's mostly just one recipe that I follow religiously. How boring, right? I love the name of the dish--poricha in Malayalam means 'fried'. Your first shot is beautiful!

  15. Love the bright color of the kuzhambu. I do not see Sharmis stamp in this particular picture...maybe you wanted it to be as simple as the dish.
    I recently posted my version which does not have paruppu in it. My mother in law makes it with dhal.I like to make in once a while.
