MOR KALI OR MORE KUZHU

Mor kali   or Mor Kuzhu is an authentic traditional,yester years recipe which is almost a forgotten dish.  I thought of reviving the memory of this traditional recipe. Those who have tasted this will definitely love to make this. The younger generation who have not got the opportunity to taste this dish must try as it is very easy to make and quite healthy dish. I am giving here my mother's  method minus the coconut bits as my husband does not like coconut in it and my mother in law prepare without coconut.

It is prepared with the rice batter which is kept overnight for fermenting for the tangy taste. Another method is very easy with rice flour and butter milk.   By adopting this  method, you can make it within 10-15 minutes and serve. If you have unexpected guests at home, this recipe is handy provided you have curd and rice flour at home.

 You do not need any side dish for this and can be taken as it is. If required, you can have any pickle specially with vadu manga water.  This is a very healthy dish which will  satisfy your hunger cravings immediately. 

This can be prepared  when you have mid-morning or mid-afternoon cravings in between meals.  I am giving two methods here with Rice batter and Rice flour and curd.

Let us look at the recipe now:  video: Mor Kali
