Palak thambli recipe is basically a side dish prepared out of spinach leaves which almost reminds of a raita. This spinch thambuli is originally a Karnataka dish which is usually eaten along with hot rice and most of the times, thamblis are served at the beginning of the lunch or dinner. I have already posted different types of thambuli recipes, and to mention a few of them like Fenugreek seeds thambli, Ginger thambli, Basale leaves thambli, and so on.

KitchenMasti Points.

  1. Be cautious while adding the curds. to it that the curds are not very sour.
  2. The thambli should be very watery in texture, so you must dilute it with the water.
  3. Always use fresh coconut for grinding the thambli for a refreshing taste.
