Thengai Paal Puli Kuzhambu with step by step pictures.
I love puli kuzhambu. The taste of puli kulambu is somewhat tangy, spicy and very flavourful. It is a perfect combination with rice.
We are always looking for recipes to make everyday like kulambu, poriyal and sidedishes for rice. This puli kulambu will become your favorite. It is easy to make and taste amazing.
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you.
