Hi Mala,
It is so refreshing to see a 'Hebbar Iyengar' recipe blog. It takes me back to my childhood and my mom's cooking.
Will try out the 'gasagase kanumbdh' this week.

@ Shweta

Adding Tomato it gives little bit taste. My entire family and my mom all like to add tomato to the kolambu

Sheetal Naik August 13, 2014 at 12:33 PM  

We never add tomato to kolambu

Vanamala Hebbar August 13, 2014 at 1:25 PM  

@ Sheetal - Tomato is just an optional. My family likes to add tomato. Becoz gives little bit taste.

Nice to see other Kolambu lovers :). My mother adds a tsp of raw rice when grinding the coconut, gives more texture

Vanamala Hebbar September 24, 2014 at 2:29 PM  


Oh that's nice.. I will give it a try to add raw rice.

Hi there,

I am sorry. I do not know where you got this recipe from. Kolumbh does not have any tomatoes in it.
