           Buttermilk curry (moar kulambu) is a traditional savory dish made in southern part of india. It is usually served with rice and some spicy side dish. It goes very well with fish fry. The different variations of mor kulambu are plain mor kulambu (made without any vegetables) or mor kulambu with veggies. The veggies that are traditionally used are okra, pumpkin and cucumber. Other veggies like squash varieties(zuccini, yellow, acorn, butternut), cabbage or cauliflower can also be used instead.
            The following is the recipe of okra mor curry. It is a very quick and simple recipe and is delicious with rice for a hot summer day.

1. Grind the ingredients from batch I very well.
2. Now add the curd and grind it for about a min.
3. In a pan put oil for seasoning, put mustard seeds, curryleaves and dry red Chilly.
