White Gourd Mor Kuzhambu
White Gourd (Petha/Kohla) Mor Kuzhambu is a flavourful South Indian style dahi based curry.
White gourd is cooked with aromatic spices and then mixed with Sarda Farms dahi to make a tangy, flavourful curry that goes well with steamed rice. For a variation you can use cucumber or pumpkin instead of white gourd.
- 2 cups white gourd, peeled and cubed
- 1/3 cup Sarda Farms dahi, whisked
- ½ teaspoon turmeric powder
Place the white gourd, 1/2 teaspoon salt, turmeric powder and about 1 1/2 cups water I a pan.
Cover and cook on low heat till the gourd softens.
Meanwhile, blend together all the ingredients under ‘To be ground into a fine paste’. Use little water if required to make a fine paste.
Add this paste to the cooked gourd and stir.
Adjust the quantity of salt and simmer on low heat till it thickens.
Add the dahi to the pan and stir to mix well. Do not boil the curry once the dahi is added. Just warm it for 1-2 minutes.
In a small pan heat the oil.
Add this tempering to the curry. Mix and serve with rice.
