fry the Vendakkai till golden otherwise the Kuzhambu will turn sticky.
tamarind extract should be thick or you can adjust it water according to your peference.
you can add 2 tsp sambar powder instead 1 tsp chilli and 2 tsp coriander powder.
Vendakkai Puli Kuzhambu taste good if we make it little spicy.
