Vendakkai Mor Kuzhambu Recipe | Buttermilk Kuzhambu | How To Make

Vendakkai Mor Kuzhambu pinit

Vendakkai Mor Kuzhambu is a dish originating from Tamil Nadu and Kerala. It’s made of liquid curry that can be served with white rice, pancake-style lentil dosa (mixed gram), or even steamed potato fries for those looking to spice up this traditional meal! The taste is slightly sour but it’s sure worth trying if you’re in the mood for something different than usual.

The two types of curry in Kerala are Kaalan and Buttermilk. The vegetables used in the kaalan dish include ash gourd, a type of squash once common to India but now relatively rare due to its growing popularity as an export crop for several countries around the world. Ash Gourd is rich in calcium and vitamin C, with very low cholesterol content making it ideal for those who want healthy food without sacrificing taste.

Vendakkai Mor Kuzhambu recipe is a nice combination of plain rice, idiyappam, and a variety of rice. Extra buttermilk can be used like this and turned into a tasty side dish/kulambu. Vegetables like ash guard, chow-chow, seppankizhangu (yam, colacasea) can be used. Here I have used ladies fingers.
