"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."

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.
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.
