A kuzhambu is a spicy (sometimes mild) tangy gravy and the sourness is from either the tamarind (in most dishes) or curd/buttermilk or tomatoes. But in this dish and it is it's speciality, we use both tamarind and curd for the base. Hence the name iru puli, literally translated to "two sourness". I would say this is a mix of morkuzhambu and thengai araicha kuzhambu (yet to post).
I have already posted a version of this dish here. This is another way to prepare this kuzhambu.

Another interesting recipe from Tambrahm cuisine,looks delicious and finger licking.I had it long time back in one of my friend's place who is from Tirunelveli.
Some versions of arachu kalakki has both tamarind and curd. But it's not quite the same as this. Nice new recipe for me.
