Maa Vathal Kuzhambu Recipe / Dry Mango Kuzhambu Recipe

You all know my love for making kuzhambu for lunch, i make different varieties of that each day to pair with my lunch menu. One of my favorite of that is vathal kuzhambu, love it so much. 

This is a different way of making vathal kuzhambu, i added some maa vathal and brinjal in this to make it more tasty. Since there is maa vathal added in this, you dont have to add tamarind. Will soon share the recipe for making maa vathal at home, this time i used the one which my mom gave me..So try this out and let me know how it turned out for you..
