Vada Kulambu

This Kulambu is one of the specialities of Patti . It tastes so yummy and we just cant stop eating it.


1/2 kg - Kadalai Paruppu soaked overnight
2 Chopped Onions
1 Coarsely cut Onion
2 Chopped Green Chillies
3 tsp - Red Chili Powder
2 tsp - Coriander Powder
1 tsp - Turmeric Powder
2 piece of coconut
1 Cup - Tamarind Paste
1 tsp - Jeera
Salt to taste
Oil for Deep Fry
Curry leaves for garnish


In a blender , mix the kadalai paruppu and green chillies. It should not be made to a paste but coarsely ground to form a mixture. Make small balls and set them aside. Heat oil in a thick bottomed kadai, and deep fry each ball in it.

To make the kulambu. Mix the tamarind paste, Red chili Powder, coriander Powder and salt. In a saucepan heat a little oil and season with mustard seeds and curry leaves. Add the mixture and bring it to boil. Make a paste out of the coconut , jeera and the coarsely cut onions in a blender.

Add this paste to the boiling mixture and simmer for a few minutes. When the kulambu is almost done , add the fried vadai balls in it and let it boil for another 5 minutes. Garnish with Curry leaves and serve hot with rice and papad.
