Whenever I make arachuvitta sambar or the paste for vathakuzhumbu , I always think of trying out a fusion variety with paneer ,mushrooms or tofu added into the same gravy /kuzhumbu. This would make a different and delicious side dish for rice and rotis. So I finally tried it one day and it tasted really delicious. I made it with paneer , but am sure you can add in some fresh mushrooms and tofu and some peas too. I had it with phulkas , but my hubby insisted that I make some steamed rice or cumin rice for this gravy next time. Even ghee rice would be a good option. So am going to try different combinations and options next time. Its very easy to make and versatile. You can omit the garlic and onions if you want. The curry leaves and whole peppers gives a nice flavour. The tamarind and tomatoes are enough to give a necessary tanginess to the gravy.
Hope you try it out and let me know how you like it. Its been raining cats and dogs for the past couple of hours and I have a sore throat:( So this is what I am craving now as I work on this post. The flavours in this gravy would be excellent for this kind of weather!!It just striked me that we have millet for dinner sometimes and this side dish would be a nice option too.
The kids holidays starts next week. So I am not sure how active I can be with my blog. I do have recipes and pictures lined up and I do hope to post them every now and then.
