TAKE CARE TIPS
You can use 2 tsp of chilli powder instead of dried red chillies.
I ve used dried chillies for it enhances the taste and also gives good colour to the kulambu.
Make coconut milk using 5 tbsp of grated coconut with one and half cups of water.
You can add 1/4 tsp of fennel seeds while grinding which gives a different taste to the kulambu.
