Mor Kuzhambu is a traditional Kuzhambu across  India made using Buttermilk.  This is being made with different variations across different parts of the country. Pulissery is type of Mor Kuzhambu made in Kerala. Again there are different variations in Pulissery. This Mor kuzhambu (Pulissery) is a variation  made in Kanyakumari district and in Nagercoil.  Nagercoil is in the border of Kerala. Here the recipes are influenced by both Kerala cuisine and Tamil Nadu cuisine and you often get a fusion recipes in this place. This Pulissery is one such recipe which is popular in Nagercoil where my Mother-in-Lived for more than 30 years.

In this variation of Pulissery we don’t add turmeric powder to Mor Kuzhambu. Also unlike the traditional Mor kuzhambu, where we grind dal, coriander seeds etc., here it’s pretty simple, we just need to grind coconut with green and red chilli. This is one of the quickest dish we can make within 20 minutes. Also we can make this little diluted and it would become a perfect accompaniment for Sevai.

Different variations of Mor Kuzhambu

As I mentioned, Mor Kuzhambu (morkuzhambu) (Kuzhambu made using buttermilk) can be made in different ways. Paruppu urundai Mor kuzhambu is a famous dish made in southern part of Tamilnadu and Kerala.  Bonda Morkuzhambu or Morkuzhambu with vada is an another way to make Mor Kuzhambu using Bonda. Kumbalanga Pulissery ( Kumbalanga Mor Curry) is the most popular dish from Kerala Cuisine. This is one of the important dish as part of the Onam Sadya. Finally, another method is Iru Puli Kuzhambu. We are using both buttermilk and tamarind to make this kuzhambu and hence its called Iru Puli Kuzhambu. Try these variations and let me know your feedback

Notes :

  1. Instead of sour curd, we can also use Sour Cream which is available in the market. It tastes different and may be you and your family may like this different taste. I tried it few times and got good feedback from my family.
  2. You can add the vegetables like Cucumber, Lady’s finger in to this, which tastes good.  In some variation, i have seen people adding even pineapple. It’s your choice
  3. The slight red color in Pulissery comes from Red Chilli. Depending on your wish, you can adjust the Red chillies and reduce the proportionate green chilies and vice versa to get a desired color.
  4. Don’t let the mixture to boil. We don’t allow buttermilk to boil
