Vendakkai Kara Kuzhambu (Spicy Bendi Gravy)

Vendakkai Kara Kuzhambu (Spicy Bendi Gravy)
Recently I'm experimenting cooking methods in preparing South Indian Cuisines to the taste bud of my hubby's. My hubby likes to have a lots of ginger,garlic and green chillies in any food. Sometime he ask me too much question whether I have added enough ginger,garlic,green chillie and the list goes on and on. At times I would be tempted to add add them to his cup of coffee or tea or even cold beverage. I wanted to share my another success in preparing Vendakkai Kuzhambu- something which differs from the ones prepared by my MIL .
