When podi is made for people with no time, pastes are made for those who have even lesser time. Podi is made from dry ingredients and paste has ingredients with moisture content. Besides, while pastes can be had with Idli, dosa and chapathi, podi lags behind in meeting such demands.
In making vatha kuzhambu paste, tamarind, jaggery and sambar podi is added and this, when made in bigger quantity, saves time. Vathakuzhambu is a comfort food, widely relished in South India.
Storing vatha kuzhambu paste for emergency sake is indeed a good idea since one would not get upset when you are too busy to cook. It is also great companion for South Indians who stay away from home.
Why use readymade vatha kuzhambu paste? Each time you make vatha kuzhambu, one has to add sambar powder or roasted powder according to the tamarind taste. If tamarind is sweet, the powder should be accordingly altered. If you are sure about his concept, you can use podi for vatha kuzhambu.
If you do not know the podi and tamarind relationship, paste is a good option since it settles the problem within itself.
