Poondu Puli Kulambu, a traditional South Indian recipe like sambhar that is usually had with rice, but tastes equally good with idlis and dosas. It is like a curry of Onions and garlic in tamarind gravy, perked up with a very flavourful tempering. Although a variety of spices are used, the sesame, urad dal and curry leaves in the tempering lends a classic, aromatic South Indian touch to this kulambu.
