Kulle Ambat

Its simply the mixed veg ambat (with onion seasoning) but prepared in kulles or clay pans ( the flat ones )…Most of the  GSB’s in North Kerala especially in Kannur / Thallashery area are great fish lovers…If on some days for any reasons fish were not available and the dil maange more for fish curries , then she used to prepare this ambat in the kulles. It tasted awesome with the aroma that the claypans would impart generously…
