My arachu vitta sambar is a big hit among friends. Many have loved and tried it. Here I am with another speciality of mine – Arachuvitta kuzhambu. Just as my arachuvitta sambar does not require sambar powder, this kuzhambu also does not require sambar powder. I have prepared it with brinjal. You can try it with any vegetables which we normally use for kuzhambu like drumstick, broad beans, ladies finger or even with vathals.
