  • About

Unique to the Tamilian Brahmins from southeastern India, this curry is flavored with a spice blend commonly used in the thin, brothlike, tamarind-based rasams. However, with the absence of tart tamarind and the inclusion of onion-smothered multiple legumes and starchy potato, this curry could not be any more different in taste and body than the rasams in this book.
