MorKulambu / Butter Milk curry

This is an easy to make lunch box recipe and goes well with any side dish. And is one of my all time favorites. Whenever I get up late for office, this is one recipe that I always think about to go into the lunch box. A simple cabbage stir fry would go hand-in-hand with this.

~* Ingredients *~
Large Onion - 1
Curry leaves - 1 sprig
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Green chilli - 1 Oil
Gram flour - 1 tbsp
Buttermilk - 1 cup
Hing powder - a pinch
Turmeric powder - 2 pinches
Water -As needed

The Making:

Chop the onions lengthwise.
Heat oil in a kadai.
Add the mustard seeds and curry leaves and allow to splutter.

Slit the green chilli length-wise and add this.
Add the hing powder and fry for 5 seconds.

Now add the onions and fry till brown.

Meanwhile mix the gram flour with 1 tbsp of water and set aside.
When the onions have fried, add the turmeric powder and saute for 2 mins.

Now add the gram flour mixture and keep on stirring till the mixture leaves of the pan.
Now add the buttermilk and salt and stir till the mixture mixes well.

Keep in medium flame for 3 mins and off the flame

Serve with white rice.

  23. Thank you for bringing this blog to our attention. It's amazing. There's no denying that the number of nut butter on store shelves is on the rise. However, what appears in the ingredients list is more important than the nut butter you buy. So go with "Seed & Shell" for the nutritious nut butter. Our pistachio butter spread is handcrafted with pistachios grown in California and contains no harmful ingredients. Keep in touch with us!
