Doddapatre Tambuli

Doddapatre Tambuli

Doddapatre (Coleus Aromaticus)

Doddapatre or Sambara balli is a small herb. It is used as home remedy for cold and cough. Slightly heat 2 to 3 leaves and squeeze out the juice. Mix this juice with salt or honey. It can be consumed for 2 to 4 times a day.

It is Karnataka special and one of the traditional recipe of South Canara. Tambuli keeps body cool. Usually tambuli is served as a starter for lunch or dinner. It goes well with hot cooked rice. It helps in digestion. It is also called “pittha hara” in Ayurveda. It is considered also as a side dish along with lunch or dinner.

Now tambuli is ready to serve.

You can have tambuli with hot cooked rice with ghee.

Tips :

You can add necessary curds to get the right consistency. You can also add grated coconut while frying and grinding. I have not added. I have mentioned green chilly optional, if you do not want you can avoid it.
