Tambuli is a common side dish which accompanies our daily lunch during summer season. During hot summer, more than hot curries and sambar, cool ones like Tambuli and Appehuli will be more comfortable to have. Tambuli is also called as Tambli in common. Varieties of Tambuli can be prepared using simple ingredients available in our kitchen.
Almost all the varieties of Tambuli are prepared using buttermilk. As per my knowledge, Raw Mango Tambli is the only Tambli for which buttermilk is not needed. Any variety of raw mango which can be used for pickle will also be good for Tambuli. Try this Tambuli during hot summer to keep your body cool and I'm sure, you will like it!!
