while the recipe of mor kuzhambu recipe is extremely simple, but some tips and variations. firstly, to prepare this curry i would heavily recommend to use slightly sour buttermilk for tangy and spicy buttermilk kuzhambu recipe. if you do not have a sour curd you can also add 1-2 tsp of lemon juice. secondly, always cook the curry or the buttermilk in a low flame. lastly, i have used pumpkin and cucumber as the vegetables for this recipe. you can also use the combination of other vegetables like eggplant, drumsticks and okra. again make sure to fry the okars separately before adding it to the curry.
