Vathakuzhambu is a thick tamarind juice and coconut milk gravy that is an authentic Tamil dish from the Chettinad belt of south India. Chef makes this dish with black nightshade berries, though it can be made with other veggies too like brinjal, shallots or drum stick. Jaggery is added to balance the other strong flavours of this dish.
This gravy is spicy, tangy and super delicious. It is served as an accompaniment with plain rice or south Indian curd rice.
