Karuvattu kuzhambu – village style authentic dry fish gravy
My mother in law prepared this kuzhambu. One of my favorite recipe of her preparation and I love to have it with rice. Usually this kuzhambu tastes good the next day and we have it for breakfast with idly or dosa.
Usually my mom prepare this kuzhambu by adding mochhai payiru and we don’t add coconut in the preparation of kuzhambu. Aadi maasam favorite dish is koozhu and karuvattu kuzhambu. They prepare for the goddess and feed the poor during a festival in Tamil nadu. Koozhu is nothing but the ragi porridge or ragi ball or fermented ragi porridge. This authentic karuvattu kuzhambu goes well with this ragi ball and we in my family everyone love to have it. During marriage also they have a function named “kalyana koozhu” when they worship their favorite god for the successful completion of any new or good thing like marriage. In that function they will call upon the friends and relatives and neighbour’s and worship god by offering this koozhu and karuvattu kuzhambu.
