This is a chettinad style karakuzhambu and i make this for my husband whenever i travel. This can be stored more than 5days under refrigeration and ideal for rice, idly and dosas. I got this recipe from internet and i have excluded some ingredients to our liking.

How to make:

1)Soak tamarind with hot water for about 1/2 hr and extract the pulp. Do not add extract watery.
2) In a pan, heat oil and saute the garlic and onion until its done and pour the tamarind pulp to it.
3) Once the raw smell is gone, add sambar powder, chilli powder and dhania powder.
4)Let the all cook until the tamarind pulp gives a thick consistency.
