I prepared this kolambu and it came out very well but i did not get a thick consistency and i also do not know how to increase the quantity of the kolambu
The tips(covering with paper towel) u gave for removing the okra's mucilage nature has gone out and that was a kadi problem for me whenever i cook okra.
Thank u for providing this recipie .

hi sivam,

For getting thick consistency,

take 2 teaspoon of Rice flour,add little water to it(so that rice flour dissolves,and not much) and pour in kolambu...It will work...
