Moru Curry

And so yet another Onam has gone by and the last week has been a lazy one after all the celebration. I haven’t been cooking much and recovering from an eye infection. I am feeling much better today
This is one of those curry that I make quite often at home and this is my quick fix for those busy/lazy days. I absolutely love this and all I need is some mango pickle to go with it. Please add water as required for the consistency you need.

  • Grated coconut – 1/2 cup
  • Green chilly- 1,slit
  • Dried red chili – 1-2-
  • Turmeric powder – 1/2 teaspoon
  • Fenugreek seeds – 1/2 teaspoon
  • Cumin seeds – 1/4 teaspoon
  • Curry leaves – 2 sprigs
  • Oil – 2 teaspoons
  • Water – 1 cup or as required
  • Salt to taste

How to –

In blender, blend the grated coconut, yogurt, cumin seeds, turmeric powder, green chili, to a fine paste.

Heat oil in pan. Tip the mustard, fenugreek seeds and allow to splatter. Add the dried chili, curry leaves and fry for 1-2 minutes.

Turn the heat to very low and add the yogurt-coconut mixture, water (as required), salt and heat through gently. Do not boil.
