This is one of our favorite kuzhambu for my hubby and son. This is very simple way to make it. I used sambar powder, which my mom grinds in the mill and gives me when I visit her. If its not available, you can replace it with red chilly powder and coriander powder also. Try to use sesame oil for kuzhumbu recipes, it is good to health and taste great.
