Kara Kuzhambu (Thick)



Any type of kara kuzhambu is my fav :):)... nice and spicy!.. This version is a thicker one, similar to the one we get at grand sweets, Chennai.

Ingredients:
To paste:
Tomato - 2
Garlic - 1 full (all pods)
Coconut - 1/2 cup
Aniseed - 1 spoon
Coriander powder - 4 spoons
Chilli powder - 4 spoons
Turmeric powder - a pinch

Gingely oil - 7 spoons
Tamarind concentrate - 1/2 spoon
Salt to taste

Method:
Blend all the ingredients to paste together with little water. Heat the gingely oil, add the paste, tamarind, salt and leave it until the oil separates.
