Shunti (Ginger) thambuli - Udupi Recipe

This thambuli will be tasty when we have slight indigestion or when we feel sick. The aroma of ginger (shunti in Kannada - ಶುಂಠಿ , Inji in Tamil - இஞ்சி)makes us feel hungry! I love the flavour of ginger, coriander and curry leaves. Now to Ginger Thambuli:


  • 1" piece Chopped Ginger
  • 1-2 Green Chilli
  • 1/2 cup Coconut
  • 1/2 cup Curd
  • Salt as per your taste


  • 1/2 tsp. Mustard
  • 1/2 tsp. Coconut oil
  • Curry leaves


Grind ginger, chilli and coconut with 1/4 cup water nicely in a mixer. Add curd and grind for a second. Pour in a vessel and add salt. Add water till the thambuli is like dosa batter or a bit more watery, if you like. Garnish. Shunti thambuli is ready.

Serve with Rice or Chapaathis. Tell me whether you liked it, right?
