Can anyone say no to Mor kuzhambu (?????) which is the traditional and tasty recipe of the south Indians. It goes well with hot rice.I first tasted this in my aunt's marriage when I was a child. From that on, I have become a great fan of this recipe.The color and the texture of it would attract anyone.During summer, in all the functions, vatha kuzhambu would be replaced by this fabulous recipe. :)Mor kuzhambu has many avathars :) as with ash guard and with chow-chow.
