EASY MORU CURRY / MORU KACHIYATHU (WITHOUT COCONUT)


Buttermilk (Moru), whether it is Sambharam / Pacha Moru or Kachiya Moru / Moru Curry, is an integral part of daily Kerala Cuisine and is definitely favorite of a Malayalee. Moru Curry can be prepared in two ways – with grated coconut (known as Puliserry) and without coconut. I use to prefer the without coconut type whenever I am in a hurry. It is really easy, which can be prepared in less than 5 minutes, and equally tasty too (practically moru curry with coconut is always tastier). Even though, this spicy moru curry is also wonderfully flavored by ginger, fenugreek, curry leaves and other spices.
