More Kuzhambu/Mor Kuzhambu [Without Vegetables]

Today I am going to share a very basic, common, simple and appetizing more kuzhambu made in almost all the houses of Tamil Nadu. Usually I add vegetables to more kuzhambu, but today my refrigerator was empty and I was kind of lazy to do shopping. So I ended up making a plain more kuzhambu without any vegetables, but I promise you all that I will be posting more kuzhambu with vegetables real soon. For now enjoy this simple and divine more kuzhambu. Check out other South Indian Kuzhambu varieties here...

Here’s how to make More kuzhambu with step by step photos…


Butter milk/Sour curd
2 cups
Turmeric powder
¼ tsp
As needed
Cilantro/coriander leaves
1 tsp finely chopped [optional]

For Grinding

Grated Coconut
¼ cup
Coriander seeds/dhaniya
1 tsp
Green chillies
1 inch piece
Thoor dal/Thuvaram paruppu
1 tsp
Raw rice
½ tsp
Cumin seeds/Jeeragam
1 tsp

For Tempering

2 tsp
Mustard seeds
½ tsp
Cumin seeds
½ tsp
Dry red chillies
Curry leaves
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes
Serves: 4-5


Soak the rice, thoor dal, dhania/coriander seeds, cumin seeds mentioned under grinding for 20 minutes in water.

Drain the water and grind them along with green chillies, ginger and grated coconut to a fine paste.

Churn/beat the curd/yogurt with turmeric powder and salt, this step is essential to avoid any lumps.

Heat oil in a pan, splutter mustard seeds, then add cumin seeds, dry red chillies, curry leaves and fry for 20- 30 secs.

Now add the ground paste and stir it well along with ¼ cup of water and salt.

When this mixture comes to rolling boil, add the churned buttermilk . Let it come to boil in low flame and switch off the stove in 2-3 minutes. This step is essential to maintain the kuzhambu in right consistency.

Finally garnish the kuzhambu with coriander leaves/cilantro.

Delicious and blissful more kuzhambu is ready to be enjoyed, serve it hot with steamed rice along with vazhakkai varuval or vendakkai varuaval.
