Black Night Shade Arai Puli Vatha Kuzhambu is a traditional curry from Tamil cuisine.
Black Night Shade Arai Puli Vatha Kuzhambu uses Manathakkali or Black Night Shade, which is highly nutritious and full of minerals such as phosphorus, Iron, Calcium, A, C, and B Vitamins. Arai Puli means half the quantity of puli or tamarind in Tamil. This dish is one family heirloom recipe that has long been forgotten in many households.
Many modern Tamilians may not know how to make it though they might have heard of it.
This is quite an aromatic gravy with the right mix of white channa, urad dal and coconut milk. Black Night Shade Arai Puli Vatha Kuzhambu tastes best with boiled rice.
