Raw Turkey Berry - Coconut Tamarind Gravy | Paachai Sundakai Kuzhambu | Gravy for rice

Lip smacking slightly spiced,soured, tangy gravy that goes well with hot steamed rice along with some mildely spiced side dish. Adding the raw turkey berry as a whole might taste sour and to avoid it slightly crush them either with hard ladle or motar-pedstle.I have added coconut paste which is purely optional.Let's see how to make this kuzhambu.
