MOR KUZHAMBU(மோர் குழம்பு)

Cut the vegetable as pieces and boil in water or in steam till it cooks fully.
I used Ashgourd

Soak the ingredients given in “For grinding” list for 1 to 2 hours . Then Grind them into smooth paste. Add required water.

Now mix the ground paste turmeric and salt to the buttermilk and stir well.

Take the buttermilk mixture in a kadai and heat.
Once it starts to become frothy switch off the stove. Don’t let it boil.
Add the cooked vegetables to the kuzhambu and mix well.

Now add oil in kadai and temper with the items given in “For tempering “list and add to the prepared mor kuzhambu and mix well.
Serve hot with rice and any spicy vegetable fry as side dish. Will surely tastes great.
MOR KUZHAMBU(மோர் குழம்பு)

  • All the vegetables should be cooked well before adding to the kuzhambu.
  • While adding ladies finger cut them as an inch length pieces and then fry in a kadai with a table spoon of oil till its stickiness have to go away and then add a very little water to cook.
  • If you wish you can add few black peppers while grinding. Don’t add more as it will change the taste.
  • Don’t boil the kuzhambu ,it will become curdled.
  • Raw rice is used to make the kuzhambu as thick in consistency. If your buttermilk is thick you can avoid that.
  • If you forgot to soak the items , then just dry roast the thoor dhal and coriander seeds for few minutes and then grind along with other ingredients.
  • You can use red chilly also instead of green chillies, but the kuzhambu colour will be reddish. better to use green chilly only.
