Name sounds different? Even this soup is different..it is tastier when mixed with rice as kuzhambu rather than taking it as soup..


Tomato - 3
Onion - 1
Green chilli - 4
Garlic - 5 cloves
Toor dal - 2 teaspoon
Turmeric powder - 1 pinch
Corriander powder - 1 tablespoon
Roasted channa dal / pottukkadalai - 2 teaspoon
Sauf - 1 teaspoon
Scraped coconut - 3 teaspoon
Cinnamon - 2 pieces
Corriander leaves - to garnish
Salt - as per need
Oil - 1 teaspoon

  • Take chopped tomatoes (medium size), sliced onion, split green chillies, sliced garlic, turmeric powder, toor dall in a pressure cooker and add 3 glasses of water.
  • Pressure cook for 10 minutes.
  • Grind coconut, 1/2 spoon of sauf, roasted channa dal / pottukkadalai, corriander powder into a fine paste.
  • Add oil to a frying pan; season with cinnamon and sauf.
  • Add the mix from the cooker to the pan and add salt.
  • When the mix boils, add the paste; when it boils well and bubbles twice switch off the stove.
  • Garnish with corriander leaves.


If sour taste given by tomato is not enough, add few drops of tamarind pulp.
