Tangy Shallots & Pepper Gravy/Venkagaya Milagu Kuzhambu

Most of our Indian dishes are loaded with many medicinal values. we cant live without onions, tomatoes and many more spices, without these ingredients u cant cook any Indian dishes..This milagu kuzhambu was one of my grandma's signature dish which she usually used to prepare atleast once a week whenever we go to her village, she serve us either with hard boiled eggs or papads and this gravy tastes tremendously delicious after a day and goes awesome as side dish with any dishes, this gravy can be a side dish for idlies or dosas for breakfast, again this tangy gravy goes prefectly with hot piping rice for lunch and as a delicious side dish even along with rotis.

Sometimes we call this gravy as all purpose gravy as this gravy can goes prefectly with any sort of dishes..Whenever i prepare this gravy, we guys love them with papads or simply with vadams..One of my comforting food which makes me always nostalgic..This gravy suits prefectly if anyone at home suffer from cold or cough also for digestion..

Onion & Pepper Kuzhambu

1cup Tamarind juice
15nos Shallots (diced)
1no Tomato (crushed)
1tsp Pepper powder
1/4tsp Turmeric powder
1/2tsp Red chilly powder
1tsp Coriander powder
1tsp Mustard seeds, cumin seeds & Fenugreek seeds
Few Curry leaves
