Karuveppilai Kuzhambu – Curry Leaves Kuzhambu

June 17, 2021 Kuzhambu Varieties  No comments

Karuveppilai Kuzhambu or Curry Leaves Kuzhambu is a very healthy kuzhambu variety. I always prefer to use curry leaves by grinding them rather than just adding them in curries (just for flavour) and discarding while eating it. I do add it in curries for flavour but prefer to use the health benefits fully by making this Kuzhambu or Thuvaiyal. This Kuzhambu is really flavour as we are going to use freshly ground powder to make it. Do check out my video for tips and tricks to make this lip-smacking kulambu.

Back in India amma adds Drumstick leaves finally to make it even more flavourful. I have added the same. πŸ™‚
