Thakyou all for your lovely comments.

Hi Abhi, we used to make puli kuzhambu at home, we use this powder to prepare it. I'm not sure what they call in Malayalam. It is a thick tamarind gravy used to mix with steamed rice.
You can also use this powder to thicken any kind of gravies:)

Great pic Mye!Isn't this Sambar powder..or similar shud I say?

Mythreyi Dilip said...

Hi Shri, Sambhar powder is different from kuzhambhu thool, this powder is used for making Kuzhambhu and other gravies.

I made this kuzhambu powder and used it in prawn kulambu from your blog. Prawn kuzhambu was excellent. And Kuzhambu powder was very easy to make.
