More kuzambu

Actually this is made with Thayir(curd) but it is called more (buttermilk) Kuzambu.

For grinding:
Toor dhal------------------1tbsp(soak in water)
Green chilly----------------4
Cumin seeds----------------1 1/2 tsp(one and half)
Grated coconut---------------2 tbsp

For this we can use White pumpkin(winter gourd)Chow chow(chayote)Ladies fingerAnd some people put tomato too.But I have not tried it so far.If you want to put ladies finger you have fry it in oil with a little salt.Cook till it becomes slightly brown and then add it to the More kuzambu and boil for 5 more minutes.

Grind all the ingredients to a smooth paste and add it to two cups of curd.Add salt just enough for the curd as we have cooked the vegetables with salt.(Drain the water from the boiled vegetables and use this water for grinding the masala.That way you don't waste the nutrients of the vegetables.)Add curry leaves.Heat oil in kadai and add 1/2 tsp of mustard seeds and add it to the more kuzambu.Boil this mixture for 5 more minutes.And the yummy more kuzambu is ready to serve.This is yummy with Paruppu sadam :)

We can add 1/2 tsp of turmeric powder to the curd and add the vegetables and remaining procedure is all the same.This will have different taste.
