How To Make Seppankizhangu Mor Kuzhambu?
SEPPANKIZHANGU MOR KUZhAMBU- AN AUTHENTIC KUZHAMBU WITH SOUR BUTTERMILK AND ARBI OR SEPPANKIZHANGU.
Seppankizhangu Mor Kuzhambu is a delicious authentic South Indian kuzhambu. Mor kuzhambu is nothing but a stew made with sour buttermilk. When you have leftover curd or yogurt that is not fresh, it either gets added to aviyal or becomes some more kuzhambu. Now, a mor kuzhambu can be equated to the north indian Kadhi in the sense that both use sour curd. My favorite vegetable to use in more kuzhambu is arbi or taro root or seppankizhangu. What do I do when I m not in the mood for roasting and sauteeing or spending more than an hour in the kitchen? I make this kuzhambu. Me thinks its the simplest recipe ever for a kuzhambu. Only you will have to remember soaking the dal.
