Dry Nightshade Berries & Potato Gravy/Manathakkali Vathal Urulai Kuzhambu

Most of my buddies and followers left comments asking about the new name of my space, yep guys its been a while i want to change the name of my space. Finally i changed it before few days,hope you guys like it. Also am trying to finish my header with some recipe clicks,but its quite a tough task for me.Will get my header soon hopefully,till that please bear with my simple header..

Coming to this kuzhambu, its one of our family favourite, comforting food for us. Serve me this kuzhambu with papads,i can have it anytime of the day. Am so crazy of this yummy tangy gravy, my mom passed me some of this dry nightshade berries some days before, while going through my space i was bit shocked to see that my favourite gravy with this dry nightshade berries is missing. Prepared it again yesterday with some potatoes and served everyone at home with hard boiled eggs and fryums..Gingelly oil gives more flavourful to this tangy gravy,you can add brinjals,bhindis to the gravy in case you dont want to add potatoes..Sending to my own event Healthy Vegetarian Side Dish guest hosted by Vardhini..

2nos Potatoes (cubed)
1cup Tamarind juice
1no Onion (big & diced)

1tbsp Coriander powder
1/2tsp Pepper powder
1/2tsp Cumin ppowder
