Today’s recipe  Vendaya Kuzhambu  is one of my  Grandma’s  signature recipe. This is a quick fix dish and tastes heavenly delicious.  This tangy, spicy South Indian dish is more like a vathakuzhambu, but with a nice flavor and taste of fenugreek or vendayam.  I made this last week and it came out very yummy.
We know fenugreek are very good for diabetic and heart patients as it has good fibre content and helps in controlling blood sugar level and cholesterol. 
This lipsmacking fenugreek seeds gravy goes well with both chapathi and rice. We enjoyed it with hot steamed white rice, papad and kootu.
