Vitamin Leaves Tambuli

Vitamin leaves/Elavarige leaves/Chakramuni leaves are filled with vitamins and medicinal values. We can prepare Tambuli/buttermilk curry, chutney and even spicy dosa using Patrode dough.

I have used Vitamin /Chakramuni leaves, fresh coconut gratings, curd and some simple spices. Always prepare tambuli with mild spicy taste. It helps the body to get good nutrients of the vegetable we used.
Tambulis are very famous in South Canara and Malenadu sides.
Vitamin plant is also known as Multi Vitamin plant. The leaf contain Vitamin E, K, B and Vitamin C.The leaves are low in calories and fat. They are rich in protein and dietary fiber.
Tambuli should be eaten in the beginning of the lunch. Or you can drink it as soup. Eating tambuli in the beginning helps to digest the food properly, keeps our body and mind cool. Normally we eat tambuli during the lunch time with plain rice.
