An authentic Lip-smacking Kuzhambu learnt from my grandma...Milagu kuzhambu (Pepper Gravy) with Garlic..A recipe to relish with hot rice or curd rice and my all time favorite..

Pepper corns 3 tablespoon
Toor dhall 2 teaspoon
Urd dhall 1 teaspoon
Raw rice 2 teaspoon
Tamarind extract 1 cup (thick)
Asafoetida a pinch
Turmeric powder half teaspoon
Mustard half teaspoon
Salt as needed
Powdered Jaggery half spoon

Dry roast raw rice..Pepper corns..Toor dhall...urd dhall..asafoetida..and powder them nicely
Heat three spoons of gingelly oil in a pan...add mustard seeds and allow it to splutter...garlic is optional and if adding,..add a cup of garlic and saute...add the tamarind extract...turmeric powder and salt as needed...bring it to boil...add the powder slowly by stirring continuously as it might form lumps...allow it to cook until the aroma comes...add the powdered jaggery and switch off when it becomes thicker...
