Mor Kuzhambu | மோர் குழம்பு

Mor Kuzhambu or South-Indian Yoghurt Curry is a scrumptious curry to have along with the Rice.


Ingredients :-
-----------------

To grind :-
 Onions (roughly chopped)    1
 Coriander   1 tsp
 Turmeric powder   ¼ tsp
 Cumin  1  tsp 
 Toor dal  2 tsp
 Red chillies   5 
 Coconut  ¾ cup
 Curd   1 cup
 Curry leaves  few
 Salt to taste 
For Tempering :-
 Oil  1 tsp
 Curry leaves  few
 Mustard   ¼ tsp
 Tomato     1
 Coriander leaves    for garnishing   

Method :-
------------

1). Make a smooth paste of above ingredients with 2 tablespoon water/curd. Paste should be in thick consistency.

2).  Heat oil in a pan, add mustard. When splutters, add curry leaves and tomatoes. 
3). Saute until fragrant and crisp, add the grounded mixture. When the curry starts foaming, and bubbles appear, switch off the heat. Add more water if the kuzhambu is too thick.
This goes well with rice and can be served with a spicy stir-fry.  


Notes :-
-----------


# I used curd (instead of buttermilk) to make this dish because it makes the gravy thicker.
# Lady's finger(Vendakkai or okra or bhindi) or White Pumpkin can be added.
# For a lighter version of this dish, use buttermilk instead of yogurt.
