Arachivitta Kozhi Kulambu / Chicken Kulambu
Already I have shared many chicken kulambu recipes, this one is special and different from all the other recipes. I have roasted and grounded the spices for masala, apart from usual masala, I have induced few spices which helps in relieving cold and good for digestion. Everyone including kids can have this, you can adjust the spices according to your taste. I have adapted this recipe from my grandmother, she prepares this curry whenever we kids never want to have homemade medicine for cold and digestion.
