Brinjal Drumstick Kara Kuzhambu | No Coconut Kuzhambu

Brinjal Drumstick Kara Kuzhambu
Today I'm excited to share a remarkably simple and quick kuzhambu recipe that you can make in no time. This dish makes for an outstanding option as an easy vegetarian main course. You can adjust the spiciness by adjusting the sambar powder or kuzhambu powder according to your preference. As each powder blend differs, you are the best judge of your sambar's flavor profile. Here goes the recipe...
