Mor kulambu is mildly spiced, tasty yogurt based curry and also one of the popular & traditional dish of Tamil Nadu. That is made from slightly sour yogurt and pairs beautifully with steamed rice. It can be made with and without coconut. Here is how to make it. In this gravy, I have used Ash gourd ; but you can also try using lady’s finger, chow chow, arbi, medu vada, pakora’s and sometimes without veggies also!
It’s a summer recipe as all the ingredients used in this dish are known to cool down the body. This Mor Kuzhambu is Creamy, Delicious, Full of flavor, Easy to make. if you do not have a sour curd you can also add 1-2 tsp of lemon juice. secondly, always cook the curry or the buttermilk in a low flame.
