The Chettinad way of life revolves around really spicy and fragrant foods that arouse the senses like no other cuisine can! This quaint little town is located about 85km away from the temple city of Madurai in Tamil Nadu. It’s easily accessible by both road and rail while the nearest airports are in Madurai and Trichy.
A spicy tamarind dish, Kara Kuzhambu is an everyday lunch dish in Tamil Nadu that is served as an accompaniment to steaming rice. This recipe can be easily adapted to the vegetables available at home or even to non-veg sometimes! With the hurry-burry modern lifestyle of nuclear families, this dish is now increasingly becoming a weekend delicacy when the family is looking forward to some wholesome, earthy food. Some crispy/fried side-dish goes very well with this gravy and rice.
