We are using both butter milk and tamarind to make this kuzhambu and hence its called Iru Puli Kuzhambu. Its a tangy gravy with a mix of spice. This goes very well with Paruppu usuli, roasted potato/vazhakkai, vazhakaai puli kootu. There may be many ways of making iru puli kuzhambu and the one which I used to make regularly is given below. This is a combination of moorkuzhambu and thengai araitha kuzhambu.
