Meals with No-tamarind Curry

Meals with no-tamarind curry is one of the healthy traditional meals that we all relished as children. My mother used to prepare this delicious flavorful meal with home-grown vegetables. I still remember those mixed flavors of coconut oil, fresh vegetables & spices filled our entire house.  In those days we never said “no” to any food cooked at home as they were delicious & flavorful; it was mainly because of using fresh home-grown vegetables that were cooked in low temperature for longer time.

Drumstick leaves sambar contains protein & iron required to keep us active; bell pepper fry contains Vit.C and it helps in absorbing iron; avial provides vitamins & minerals required for a day; curd is a rich source of calcium that helps to increase bone density; papadam is made of black gram, a good source of protein & minerals.
