This mor kuzhambu (Pulissery) is so popular in Nagercoil. We don't add turmeric powder to mor kuzhambu. Also unlike the traditional morkuzhambu, where we grind dal, coriander seeds etc, here its pretty simple, we just need to grind coconut with green and red chilli and that would be the spice part of the kuzhambu. This is one of the quickest dish we can make within 10 minutes. Also we can make this little diluted and it would become a perfect accompaniment for Sevai. Try this version of Pulissery (Morkuzhambu)!
