Pulikuthi kuzhambu or pulikuthu poricha kuzhambu made with yam, plantain, cluster beans and black chana. The tempering highlights the dish very much.

Pulikuthi kuzhambu was immediately added to try list when Laxmi posted it. Main reason was the name Puli kuthi poricha kuzhambu. Also all the ingredients used are in my pantry most of the time. I have never done something like this tempering before. That is adding roasted, grated coconut. Always have ground the coconut and added in gravies.

It was fascinating for me and the way it was described by a foodie will definitely make you try. I tried last week and thought I should share here in my blog. Check out the original post here. We loved it, it was flavourful similar to the pitlai flavour. I am sure this can easily fall under your favorites.
