Vendakai More(Mor) Kuzhambu / Okra Buttermilk Curry

I know most of us have our own version of more kuzhambu, and here is mine which I learnt from my mother. I wanted to have it in my site for future reference so thought to share it here. I like this curry anytime, its quick and tasty with rice.
Vendakai Mor Kuzhambu Recipe

  • Sour curd - 1 cup
  • Okra - 4 to 5 chopped into 1 inch pieces
  • Turmeric powder - 1 tsp

To Roast and grind to a paste:
  • Urad dal - 1/2 tsp
  • Jeera - 1/2 tsp
  • Channa Dhal - 1 tbsp

Then add turmeric powder, cooked okras and allow it for one boil not more than that. When bubbles start appearing, switch it off.

Even methu vadai can be added to this kuzhambu, we call it vadai kuzhambu :) It tastes divine when the vadais are nicely dunk in the curry.


My Notes:
  • The pale yellow color comes only after the curry boils so dont add more turmeric powder than the mentioned quantity.Also adjust red chillies according to your spice level.
  • You can add any cooked vegetable of your choice : Chow chow, Sepankizhangu or even methu vadai.

    32. Hubby loved this. Thanks Sharmi.

    33. Hi sharmi, I'm an avid fan of your recipes. I've tried many of them and not one has disappoint. I have a very fussy grandfather and today I made him this kuzhumbu and your chicken pepper fry. He loved them both and finished everything on his plate (which hardly happens). Thank you very much for bringing love through your food to us in Malaysia.

      P/S: I ran out of coconut, so I blended tempeh (fermented soy beans) instead. Made the kuzhumbu thicker and creamier I think.
