"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."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

whole black peppercorns
onion, sliced thin
minced fresh ginger root
ground red pepper
jaggery (palm sugar)
salt to taste
chopped fresh cilantro leaves
Sometimes I use a variety of substitutes, such as regular cane sugar and lemon juice instead of the tamarind paste, but the overall effect is still delicious. The dish tastes sweet and then explodes with heat in the back of the throat. Great over rice or with extra vegetables if you need to stretch the meal.
I'm eating this as I type this review. This is a very satisfying egg dish. The heat is just right and it has a slight sweet/ salty thing going on. I didn't have jaggery, so I used 2 tablespoons of white sugar which is a perfect amount of sweetness for this recipe. I'm a cilantro junkie, so I have a nice pile of fresh cilantro on top of this. It's not the prettiest food you will ever eat, but it is definitely worth making!
Overall, this is a tasty dish, a good breakfast meal, but boiled eggs with the spicy sauce was a little strange and unusual for us that is the reason I give 4 stars. This dish makes very interesting breakfast.
