Onion Garlic / Vengayam Poondu Kuzhambu

This kuzhambu is remedy for cough. I learnt this recipe from my Bangalore neighbor and friend Vijaya Amma. My hearty thanks to her.

Sambar Onion / Big Onion
(cut them into small pieces)
 ¼ cup
¼ cup
Gooseberry Size
Red chilly and Coriander seeds Powder mix
3 tsp
Sesame Oil
2 tbs
Cooking oil
1 tsp
Mustard seeds
1 tsp
As required

1. Soak the tamarind in warm water for 5 mins. Then extract the juice completely. Add 2 cups of water.
2. Add red chilly, coriander powder mix and salt with tamarind water. Mix them well and keep it aside.
3. In a pan, add garlic and onion, sauté till the onion becomes translucent. Allow it to cool down and grind them into fine paste using little water.
5.  Heat the sesame oil in a pan, add mustard seeds and wait for popping.
6. Add ground paste and fry for a min. Then add tamarind mix and mix them well. Close the lid of the pan and cook till the mixture becomes 1/3 of it or till the oil separates.
   Now the onion garlic kuzhambu is ready to serve. Serve it with rice or parathas.

1. We use red chilly, coriander seeds powder mix. Instead of this use red chilly powder and coriander seeds powder separately.

2. Sambar onion gives better taste than big onion.
