Mor Kulambhu ~Tamizhar Samayal Tuesday

In our households morkulambhu is made slightly in a different way ether with masala vadai or urad dhal vadai which I shared already.
But today's version is a no onion garlic recipe adapted from Cooks Joy.It tasted heavenly with simple potato fry.I used chayote(chow chow) can be made with veggies like white pumpkin,okra and zucchini.Now off to the recipe........................................

Basic information

Preparation time ~ 10minutes
Cooking Time     ~ 10 minutes
Serves ~2

Beaten Curd/thayir1cup
Chayote/chow chow(cubed)1(appro.1 cup)
Red chilly1 (broken)
Turmeric powder/majal podi1/8tsp

For the Masala Paste
Coriander seeds/dhaniya2tsp
Urad dhal/ulutham paruppu2tsp
Fenugreek seeds/vendahyama pinch
Red cilly/varamilagai1tsp
Cumin seeds/jeeragam1tsp


Cook the chayote in a boiling water with a pinch of salt,drain the excess water after cooking and keep it aside.
Dry roast the coriander seeds,red chilly urad dhal till the aroma comes out,let it cool down.To this add the green chilly,coconut,ginger and cumin seeds.Grind it to a fine paste with water.

In a bowl take the curd and add 1/2 cup of water,whisk it,to this add the ground paste,turmeric powder,salt and mix it well.Transfer to a pan and allow it to boil in a medium flame for 6-7 minutes,now add the cooked chayote pieces,let it cook for one boil.put off the fire.Now in a pan do the tempering with mustard seeds,asafoetida,red chilly and curry leaves.Pour it in the kulambhu and mix it well.

Mor kulambhu is ready.Serve it with rice.


  • Do not boil the kulambhu for long time after adding the vegetable.
  • Use one day older curd/yogurt to get a nice taste.
