Vazhaikkai Paal Curry Recipe

You might have known that I am a lover of coconut milk usage in food with my posts. Yesterday I came across this Vazhaikkai Paal Curry Recipe on Instagram of Happy Home Maker Tamil. It caught my eyes and seduced my taste buds too. My refrigerator was calling me with two raw bananas. And this was our lunch today.

This recipe to me looked like a midway between Sodhi and vellai curry, the family’s traditional recipes or you can even compare to mappas. The taste was more like mappas. We totally loved it with thooyamalli rice. You can make a try with hot steaming idly and also crispy dosa

Do not allow the curry to boil after adding the thick milk. The entire gravy will curdle.

You can add a red chilly too if you need it spicier.
