Thakkail Kulambu

Thakkali Kulambu
This is one of my son's favorite curry for dosai. He will have at least 3 dosai with Thakkali Kulambu. A very simple curry to prepare. I used to prepare this very often when I first came to USA. After some time I got sick of preparing the same old curries again and again. After a very long time I'm preparing as my hubby got a lot of tomatoes from Sam's Club and they are were get mushy.
