Morkuzhambu and two awards

I love all yogurt based recipes. Morkozhambu tops the list. I learnt this from my mom and since this is easy, i make it atleast once a week, during the weekday. It is everyone's favorite at my house, so no dinner-time battle with this :)




Ingredients :

Buttermilk - 3 cups (should not be very watery)

Green chillies - 8

Grated coconut - 3 spoons

Channa daal - 2 spoons

Rice - 2 spoons

Cumin seeds - 2 spoons

Salt to taste

Mustard seeds, jeera and curry leaves for seasoning.

Few pieces of Okra/Ashgourd/cooked colacassia - Optional


Method :
Wash and soak channa daal and rice in water for an hour. Grind this with cumin seeds, green chillies and coconut. Add this paste to the beaten yogurt / buttermilk. Add turmeric powder, salt and hing.Cook in medium heat for about 5 minutes or till it thickens. Keep stirring in between. If you over heat it will become very watery.
Season with mustard seeds, cumin seeds and curry leaves. You can add Ashgourd or Colocassia or Okra to it and it tastes very good. If you are adding these vegetables, cook these before hand with little salt and then add the buttermilk mixture to it and cook.
Tip : To get a rich, creamy morkozhambu, add 1 cup of sour cream to the butter milk and blend it well before cooking. It tastes awesome, but is fatty :-O Tastes good with Rice and colocassia . I love it with Adai too.

On priya's prompting, i am sending this to RCI Chettinad. Along with this i am also sending Mushroom Chettinad
