Tambuli is a cooling curry served in the beginning before the main course and is taken along with rice. In Udupi Tambuli is prepared using most greens, vegetables and spices. As summer season is intolerable here, tambuli is one of the menu items for lunch to keep our body cool. Tambuli can be prepared with the spices like Ginger, Sesame seeds and Fenugreek, greens like palak, Brahmi, Dodda patre, fenugreek leaves, curry leaves, coriander leaves and many more.
