Eral Kaikari Kuzhambu
Heat oil in kadai, when hot add vadagam fry for 2 secs. Add chopped onion, garlic and curry leaves, fry for another 2 secs. Now add the cleaned prawns and vegetables saute for few mins. Add the chopped tomato and cook till tomatoes are done. Add required water, kuzhambu thool and salt. Bring the curry to boil and simmer curry for few mins until vegetables are cooked and gravy thickens. Serve hot with steamed rice.

Use country vegetables like plantain, drumstick, brinjal, broad beans etc.
