Puli Kuzhambhu - Puli Kulambu - Puli Kuzhambu - Brinjal and drumstick puli kuzhambhu Recipe

Our family love puli Kuzhambhu / puli kulambu.. Have you tried the combo of Eggplant and drumstick? it is one of the best combo.. Whenever I make this Kulambu / Kuzhambu I can feel the aroma in the whole house.. It goes well with both white rice and brown rice. I also love it with idli. As I mentioned in other posts puli kulambu tastes better next day
