I always fancied chetinadu will be quite spice and very tasty.chettinadu is famous for their non-veg items.Since i dont eat non veg i am limited to explore only vegetarian items.We went for lunch to one of our friends house who is from karaikudi.She had prepared all chettinadu vegetarian varieties.One among the items she made is thakali kuzhambu.I loved it so much got the recipe from her the same day tried it out the very next day.It came out so well.So here is the recipe for you all.Malar ur recipe.
