Meals with No-tamarind Curry

Meals with no-tamarind curry is one of the traditional meals that we all relished as children. My mother used to prepare healthy yet delicious meal with home-grown vegetables. I still remember our house filled with mixed flavors of coconut oil, fresh vegetables & spices while preparing this flavorful meal.  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.

Health Benefits: Drumstick leaves sambar contains protein & iron required to keep us active; bell pepper fry contains Vit.C and aids 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.
