Tit-Bits:

1) Even Idlies/Dosas would go well with this Roti Kuzhambu 🙂

2) Let the dhal be completely cooked so that it wont be visible in the kuzhambu. It should be blended properly.

3) If kids don’t prefer garlic, just cut them into small pieces so that they would eat it. We normally would add the whole pods.

4) If the vegetables are not cooked beforehand, it would take lot more time for preparation. After adding the water, ensure that the vegetables are well cooked and then add dhal.

5) After adding dhal, ensure that you keep the stove in low/medium flame and stir frequently to avoid the dhal from sticking to the bottom of the pan.
