Mor Kulambhu and Potato Roast

Another session of Blogging Marathon has started and for this session I chose combo dishes .For this week I will be sharing combo dishes and today's recipe is a simple and authentic mor kulambhu and potato roast.
I have already shared two recipes of mor kulambhu here and here.
Today's version is typical Tanjore style vendaikkai mor kulambhu with no onion garlic.As this doesn't have onion and garlic this kulambhu is mostly made during auspicious and fasting days.
For this morkulambhu potato roast or raw banana roast is a perfect pair and the curd needs to be slightly sour to get a nice taste.Lets move on to the recipe...................

Basic Information

Cooking time ~ 15 minutes

  • After adding the whisk curd do not boil it for a long time,just one boil otherwise it may curdle.
  • The okras need to be sauteed in a medium flame and it should be slightly crunchy.
  • Instead of ginger,mango ginger(maa inji) can be added which gives a very nice flavor to the kulambhu.
  • After adding the ground paste stir and immediately add the water otherwise it sticks to the bottom.
