(Maa Inji Mor Kuzhambu, Buttermilk Curry With Raw Turmeric & Mango Ginger)

Moru Curry is a simple South Indian curry made by seasoning buttermilk and adding a few simple spices. Slight variations are made in North India too and is known as Kadhi. Ginger, green chilies, cumin and turmeric are mixed up with beaten curd. In this recipe, I have given my own healthy twist to this traditional dish. Instead of adding turmeric powder, I have added fresh turmeric root. Also, I have added mango ginger along with the regular ginger. This adds a nice flavour to the curry which we all just loved. That's how I came up with Mango Ginger & Raw Turmeric Moru Curry.

All these three are root vegetables which are especially available in winter season in India. Most of us know the health benefits of ginger root and turmeric root. Mango Ginger root is equally healthy. These are used in traditional ayurvedic medicines a lot. Most of this generation people do not buy these because they do not know what to do with it. In Tamilnadu during pongal festival it is common to see these. Next time please do try this recipe. It tastes awesome with white rice.
