Moru Curry(Step By Step Pics) | Mor Kulambu

         I have a love towards mor kulambhu/Moru Curry and avial .I tasted Moru Curry when i was in my uncles house Chennai .I  did avial many times after i got married . This moru curry, i never tried .While i was going through a recipe book i mentioned about, i saw this moru curry with ash gourd recipe there and want to try immediately . I did the curry previous week.After i ate  ,my hand smelled like heaven .Just loving this Mor Kulzhambhu .
    Moru Curry and Beans paruppu usili is a very famous combo in Iyengar house.But we do Beetroot Usili(beetroot kola) as a sidedish(Instead of beans we use beetroot).
        I added just 3/4 cup of yogurt and 3 green chilies opposed to 1 1/2 cup yogurt and 4 green chilies mentioned in the book ,Thinking of it will be more for 3 of us .After we ate lunch  so much of  kulambhu was remaining so we had with dosa and it tasted amazing with dosa too  .If  you want  gravy/kulambhu to be tangy, use the day before yogurt .If you are making this curry for more than 4 people increase the yogurt and chilies used. you might want to increase coconut used as well .
