Mor Kuzhambu Recipe | Poosanikai Mor Kuzhambu | South Indian Mor Kuzhambu Recipe

Mor Kuzhambu Recipe
Mor Kuzhambu or Moru Curry is nothing but a buttermilk curry using coconut and lentils. Veggies like Poosanikai/White Pumpkin(Ash Gourd), Vendakka/Okra, Zucchini, Yam or Paruppu Urundai or even Masal Vadai can be used for Mor Kuzhambu. After Marriage, I did not cook Mor kuzhamu for 3-4 years because of V. I hate to cook for myself so, I do not cook mor kuzhambu and only 2 times I made it that too for Blog Post. But, I love mor kuzhambu a lot and can eat Mor kuzhambu for all three meals. Recently my kids too started liking Mor Kuzhambu..Luckily, my kids' taste buds are similar to mine and now I make once in 10 days for we three :)
 I have already shared Paruppu Urundai Mor Kuzhambu & Pachai Urundai Moru Curry recipe and this mor kuzhambu is easy,  without onion and garlic. For Padaiyal/Virunthu, we make this Mor Kuzhambu as it is without onions. This is a simple recipe with lovely flavor and taste. Here, I used White Pumpkin or Ash gourd but you can use any desired vegetable or even paruppu urundai to make this Moru Curry.

Methi Thepla Recipe | How To Make Methi Thepla | Methi Roti Recipe

Methi Thepla Recipe
Methi Thepla is popular Gujarthi Flat bread and is prepared using wheat flour/atta, gram flour, spices and fresh methi leaves. Methi Thepla or Methi Roti is a healthy, flavorful and delicious recipe that can be served as a main course for any meal. This Methi Roti doesn't require any fancy side dish, just a pickle or beaten curd is enough for a filling and satisfying meal. Due to the addition of gram flour, the rotis remains soft even after cooling. This way, it is good to pack for lunchbox or for picnic.
Try to use fresh Methi leaves for good taste and flavor. I used homegrown fresh methi leaves, as it was too tender and fresh I used the whole plant, just trimmed the root and finely chopped the plant and used it to make Methi Thepla. If using store bought methi bunches, just use leaves alone.

Channa Masala Recipe
Vacation is all over and school started for kids from last Monday. From this year my lil' one is going full day school, So I get more free hours to look after myself and my blog too. For the past 2-3 months, I could not concentrate on my blog but still I cooked and clicked dishes whenever possible. Hope from now on wards I will be able to share recipes without any break. Now coming to today's recipe, Channa Masala / Badami Chole Masala. Usualy I cook Paneer or Tofu in rich Nut Based Onion Tomato Gravy. This time, for a change tried Chickpeas in rich Onion Tomato sauce using Almonds/Badam. It turned out so rich and yummy. I served with plain Kulcha and my kids loved this creamy chole masala a lot.
