Tips:

We have used cheema chembu for this preparation. It can be used year round. But verum/velum chembu
is usually consumed only during karkidaka masam. Some varieties of chembu like kannan chembu, kochu chembu can be itchy. In order to avoid that you can use a little more coconut oil while seasoning. You can also apply some coconut oil on your palms before chopping them.
