Ready to Serve Tambuli & Parata
We from South Canara ( Southern part of Karnataka) prepare tambuli with edible leaves and some vegetables too. Tambuli helps to keep the body cool and digest our food easily. It is also one of the traditional dish I can say. Tambuli is normally prepared using butter milk or curd. Tambuli should be like butter milk or little thicker than butter milk consistency.
I have prepared this tumbuli many times before and did not write up the recipe. When I saw one of our friend prepared Carrot Tambuli and put up in the face book page I was eager to prepare that day and have it with our lunch. Luckily fresh carrots were there in the fridge and I could make use of it.
Tambuli is normally eaten during lunch, not at night in most of the time. So I used the remaining tambuli for making paratas for dinner and it was soft and thin. Adding some jeera, turmeric powder and garam masala added good taste to the parata.
Lets see some benefits of using carrots in our diet.
Carrots are rich in anti oxidants, vitamins, dietary fiber and cholesterol free. They are rich source of carotenes and Vitamin A and Vitamin C. Vitamin C helps the body to maintain healthy tissue, teeth and gum. Its anti oxidant contents helps the human body protect from diseases. They are rich in B-complex groups of vitamins like folic acid, B-6. They contain minerals like copper, calcium, potassium, manganese and phosphorus.
