Kulambu is a Tamililan spicy stew-like preparation. The main flavours are from tamarind and jaggery or sugar. This is a delicious kulambu using boiled eggs. You can easily use fish or crab instead of the eggs.
Place the eggs into a saucepan in a single layer and fill with water to cover by 1 inch. Cover the saucepan and bring the water to a boil; remove from the heat and let the eggs stand in the hot water for 15 minutes; drain. Run cold water over the eggs to cool completely; peel. Cut 4 slits into each of the eggs.
Roast the fennel seeds, cumin seeds, and peppercorns in a small skillet over medium heat until very fragrant; grind into powder. Set aside.
Heat the oil in a large skillet or kadhai over medium heat. Stir the turmeric into the oil. Quickly fry the eggs in the hot oil on all sides, about 2 minutes. Remove and set aside.
Cook the onions in the hot oil until golden brown; add the ginger, garlic, and tomatoes and continue cooking until the tomatoes are soft. Stir the ground seed mixture, ground red pepper, and ground coriander into the onion mixture and cook another 1 to 2 minutes. Pour the water into the skillet. Add the coconut, jaggery, tamarind, and salt; return to a boil and cook until the mixture thickens, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low; add the eggs and allow to simmer another 10 minutes. If the gravy is too thick, thin out with a little water. Garnish with the cilantro leaves to serve.

Eat good breakfast to start the day has become a good habit. It’s a fabolous way to start my day off healthfully. The sugar hit from the pickle tree wakes me up and gives me power to make on the morning. The sweetness is often vilified as the root of all disease, but sweetness is also loaded with fibre, which is great for your digestive system and helps keep you feel full all day , and less likely grab a snack out of the vending machine before lunchtime.
Make fruit a morning habit is simple . Simply put the sweetness in your fridge next to the milk or on the bench next to your grain bowl , or move your coffee maker or tea kettle — somewhere where you’ll see it. Before you eating the rest of your food , eat your fruit. If you’re not normally a breakfast person.
