What curry can we make today for rice??(enna kulumbu vaikalam???) this is a constant worry in so many homes which includes me too. Well this is a life saver for one of those moments.Its very easy to make and also has a unquie taste. Plus you feel light after eating this ( which is great) as its main component is ginger. But don't worry you won't get any raw ginger flavour, it will be a perfect balance of ginger, coconut, tamarind and salt.
This Ingi Kulambu is my all time favourite. I learnt it from my MIL. This gravy is so tasty and goes well with rice. When the gravy is done your house will be aromatic. It is so good for health. I make this gravy weekly once. This gravy helps in digestion, cures gastric trouble and cleans our stomach. You can even give for your kids. This is made with only few ingredients. Do try and tell me how it turned out.
