Yum
thakkali-kuzhambu

Hi friends, idli and dosa is very regular breakfast or dinner in every South Indian home. Making side dish for idli/dosa is always tedious that what to make each and every time. We should be bore of same varieties of chutney or sambhar, right? Yes, for me its bore while repetition.


Thakkali-kurma


I will prepare the instant tomato kurma, instead of chutneys. It will be superb combination with idli/dosa. I just love the juicy idli/dosa with the flavorful tomato kurma… You can prepare at any time and its very easy to make and never miss to give the delicious to your taste buds. Pressure cooker method is even easier and time saver.
