There was always a perfect balance in terms of food prepared throughout the week. So I also prepare a similar way.

Milagu kuzhambu is a a tangy and spicy slurry cooked to a perfect texture and served with rice. As the name suggests the main ingredient of milagu kuzhambu is milagu or peppercorns. Usually we roast urad dal, toor dal, pepper, chilli with few curry leaves and let it brown. Then this is ground into a paste and then added with tamarind juice and boiled to get the right consistency. However if you are travelling or short of time to go through this process then you can use this iyengar milagu kuzhambu instant mix, mix it with the required quantity of water and boil to make the perfect milagu kubhambu,
The first step while preparing any instant mix would be to clean, wash and dry all the ingredients thoroughly. Then with very minimum oil roast all the ingredients till they turn light brown. Roasting the tamarind to get the right texture so that it grinds without much issue is an art. Roast it in slow heat till it turns a little hard. Cool all the roasted ingredients completely. Grind it into a fine powder and store it in airtight container.
