Sundakkai Vathal kuzhambu is a delicious and yummy vatral kulambu.It is a kind of berry which is used in our gravies(kozhambu).People  used to sauté this vatral in a little ghee crush it on plain rice and eat when you have a stomach upset. I love Sundakkai in vatha kuzhambu…one of my fav dishes ever .It tastes delicious with steamed white rice & roasted pappad. It treats stomach ulcers and can control blood pressure, diabetes and kidney, liver disorders.Check out some more kulambu varieties like Sorakkai Kulambu.
