Karunai kizhangu Kara kuzhambu

Village style karunai kizhangu Kara kuzhambu. This kuzhambu is something different I have not added tamarind pulp instead I used only tomato. And I have did a base masala paste which made this kuzhambu thick and flavorful. The masala paste contains coconut, garlic and cumin seeds.
