Only few ingredients are used in this curry. But it tastes the best. My Mom used to make this kuzhambu only with Mochai kottai, Sambar Powder and Coconut. She doesn’t add Tomatoes or Tamarind. She uses little more Oil and Pearl Onions than usual. I have tried this few times but when I made this today, It came out really perfect.
Mochai kottai ½ cup (200ml cup)
Sambar Powder 2 ¼ tbsp
Pearl Onions 3-4
Curry Leaves 4-5
Coconut Powder 3-4 tsp
Mustard Seeds ¾ tsp
Peel and chop Pearl Onions.
Heat Oil in a Pan. Add Mustard Seeds. When they complete popping up, add the chopped Pearl Onions and Curry Leaves. When Onions turn slightly brown, add Mochai Kottai, Sambar Powder, Water and Salt. Mix well.
Boil till the curry reduces and done.
Serve with Rice and any Dry Curry/Poriyal. This goes well with Dosa too.
Notes: Coconut Powder can be replaced by grated Coconut.
