Today I made Kootu with white pumpkin/ash gourd and Puli Kulambhu /tamarind curry with okra/bendekkai. And appalam(which is like papad).

I really love tamarind based things. Once I sucked on a piece of tamarind too long and my tongue BURNED for a while after that. I guess it was the acidity! dh told me, they say pregnant women crave tamarind, hehe. (No, I'm not!)

Kootu is a mild thick dal made with channa or moong and cooked along with watery vegs. Then grind coconut, green chilies, and cumin seeds- add that and the usual south indian "tarka".
