Paruppu kuzhambu Recipe | Nellai Paruppu Kulambu

 Nellai Paruppu Kuzhambu
Nellai Paruppu Kuzhambu is somewhat different from the usual Paruppu Kuzhambu. It will little watery and the process of making is quiet similar to sambar. Whereas, here we do not want to add sambar powder. And adding the vegetables  are also optional. Even if it is watery it tastes great. Drumstick leaves poriyal is an excellent side dish for this.
