Simple and tasty, traditional South Indian dish. There was a time when I hated the sight of dishes like morkkali, puli upma etc... Today, I sincerely think that there is nothing more tasty than these!!!


Sour buttermilk 2 cups
rice flour 1 cupAlign Center 1 tsp mustard seeds
1/2 tsp urad dal
1/2 tsp channa dal
4 black dried salted chillies (mor molagai)
2 green chillies
1 sprig curry leaves
6 tbsp gingely oil
salt to taste

Make a thin batter with buttermilk and rice flour. Add oil in a kadai. Add mustard, channa dal, urad dal, curry leaves, all the chillies. Once the salted chillies become black, add the batter and salt. Stir constantly and cook in medium flame. It will take a long time for the rice flour to cook. Don't hesitate to add more oil if required. Go on till the oil separates and a koozhu/ kkali consistency is achieved (semi solid paste like). Serve with mango thokku
