Vendakkai More Kuzhambu Recipe

vendakkai more kuzhambu, vendakka mor kulambu

Today I am here with Vendakkai More Kuzhambu. It is a traditional South Indian, yogurt based gravy similar to North Indian Kadhi. I have already posted Rajasthani Gatte ki kadhi. I wanted to post Mor kuzhambu recipe for a long time but couldn't do it. It is very easy to make and takes very less time to prepare. I made mor kulambu with ladies finger / okra, but other vegetables like ashgourd, chow chow can be used too. This gravy can be served with rice and any side dish of your choice. I served it with avarakkai Paruppu usili.
