This is a lovely Kerala style dish from Priya...A lot similar to our mor kozhambu

Ingredients:

Curd – 4 cups
Water – about 2 cups
Besan /Gram Flour – 3 tsp
Ginger- 3 one inch pieces
Garlic -3 cloves (crushed rougly)
Dried Red chillies-2
Onion-1/2 an average sized (fine chopped)
Coriander/Dhaniya powder – 11/2 tsp
Pepper powder -1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder-3/4 tsp
Green chilies -3 (or to taste)
Red chilly powder-1/2 tsp
Mustard seeds -1 tsp
Cumin seeds/ Jeera-1/2 tsp
Methi/ Fenugreek seeds -1/4 tsp
Curry leaves -1 sprig
Coriander leaves- to garnish
Salt( to taste)
Coconut oil – 1 tbsp
Vegetable oil- 1 tbsp

Cooking Directions:

-Blend together curds, water, gram flour, ginger, green chilies, turmeric powder, red chilly powder, pepper, coriander powder and salt.
-In a pot, add 1 tbsp vegetable oil. Add garlic and onion. Fry until brown.
-Turn off the heat and add the blended curd-spice mixture and curry leaves while stirring continually.
-Turn on the heat and simmer the mixture till it begins to boil over. Make sure to stir continually to prevent the mixture from separating. Check for salt. Move away from heat.
-In a pan, add coconut oil. When hot add mustard, cumin seeds, methi seeds and dried red chilly. Once the mustard begins to splutter, add this to the mixture in the pot.
-Let it boil for a couple of minutes. Garnish with fresh coriander.
-Serve hot with white rice.

Yes very similar to Morkuzhambu with absense of coconut and addition of Onion and Garlic. Sounds interesting, will definetly try.

Sowmya said...

I make Morkuzhambu pretty often, May be I will try this one. Really a nice variation with curd. But how is garlic tasting with curd Kitty??

Padma said...

Thank u A2Z,Soumya,Padma and Mangala.

Priya said...

@Soumya...Garlic does add a really good flavor.However,if u aren't a garlic user,u can just avoid it and the dish should still turn out good! do let us know if u happen to try it...we'd love to hear!
