Age-old wisdom passed down the ages, Kambu Sadham is a healthy main course recipe of South India. Many a grandparent claims it to be the secret of their good health!

Indeed, a substitute for rice, the Kambu Sadham is healthy and tasty too. It is a good alternative to white rice, especially for diabetic people.

It can be served with Sambhar or any gravy for that matter. The important thing is to serve it immediately because it becomes lumpy when cold.
