Okra in buttermilk gravy(Vendakkai morkulambu)

moorkulambu

I always need onion and tomato to cook..Whenever I start cooking my first step is cutting the onion..If I dont have onion/tomato in pantry/refridgerator I feel like like there is nothing to cook.At those time morkulambu is one of my saviour,it doesnt require onion/tomato.You can add vegetables like white pumkin/arvi to this gravy..Even carrot is good.This gravy is tamilnadu speciality..This goes well with the rice,you dont even need any side dish just a pickle will work good..

You need
Dhania-1/2 tbsp
chana dhal-1 tbsp
toor dhal-1 tbsp
Salt
curd-2 cups
turmeric powder-1/2 tsp

To Grind
Green chillies-4(small)
Ginger- a small piece
cumin-1 tsp
Coconut-2 tbsp


For tempering

mustard seeds-1/2tsp
Cumin-1/2 tsp
Dry chillies-2
Curry leaves
oil-2tsp

Method

Soak the Dhal and dhania in water for 30 minutes and grind it along with the ingridient given under the grinding section

Beat the curd well with water and add the grided mixture to it.

In a kadai fry the okra until it slightly turns slightly brown,now add the curd mixture to it and add salt and turmeric powder

Boil the mixture until the bubbles comes out switch off the stove,and tempered it..


Viola your morkulambu is ready...Enjoy it with Hot rice and hot pickle...

  5. i understand what you mean about onion and tomato, but for me it's garlic and tomato. without those two things, I wouldn't know where to start when improvising in the kitchen.
