  1. Pulungari is not a coconut curry, it is a dal laced with tamarind curry.

    1. Hi Shashi Menon, Thanks for your comment. Your right Pulungari is any vegetable cooked in tamarind sauce with/without dal. And specific to certain regions of kerala, Pulungari is made with coconut and tamarind sauce and which is why we have mentioned it specifically as coconut curry. I hope that differentiates from other pulungari recipes.
