Sukku or dry ginger have enormous medical values and this kuzhambu is definitely a healthy and comforting food whenever anyone at home have severe cold or cough...My mom used to make out this sukku kuzhambu  when its rainy and this kuzhambu tastes absolutely divine when its cold out,this gravy makes me nostalgic.. i just love this kuzhambu with papads..Its has been a long i prepared this sukku kuzhambu and today i prepared for our lunch since am not feeling good coz of the recent climate changes..Delicious gravy tastes awesome even after a day and with loads of medical values this gravy is truly a home remedy for colds,cough also protect against the respiratory and digestion infections...

Anu Karthik said... Reply To This Comment

Priya, can you use fresh ginger instead of dry ginger? is that an option?

Anu Karthik said... Reply To This Comment

Priya,

thanks for your reply. where do you get the dry ginger from, or do you just dry out fresh ginger?
