Curry Leaves Sambhar / Karuvepilai Kozhambu


How about some magic to get some long and healthy hair?!! Want to get rid of hair fall?! 

Then come on, pick up some easy ingredients and head into the kitchen with me. We can make something that sure doesn't taste like medicine! ;) Shhhh that's a promise. No doubts! 

Curry leaves, curry leaves, curry leaves.... they are not for decoration,  they are not just for flavor, they are not to be thrown, they are to do good for us :)



Curry Leaves - 1 1/2 cups
Coconut - 3 tblsp
Red chillies - 6
Garlic pods - 10
Small onions(Shallots) - 10
Tomato - 2
Saunf - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp



Take a tsp of oil in a pan and fry saunf, garlic pods and red chilies for two mins and keep it aside until it comes to room temperature. 

Again take a tsp of oil in a frying pan and fry curry leaves for three minutes in medium flame. Now grind it in a mixie along with coconut and the above fried spices together into a smooth paste by adding a little water. 

Now take a tsp of oil in a pan and crackle mustard, now add peeled shallots, chopped tomato, salt, turmeric powder for fry for five minutes. Now add the above ground paste and adequate water to bring it to sambhar consistency. Allow this to boil for five mins and bring it off the stove. 

Serve with hot rice and ghee :)
