Vendakkai More Kulambu / Okra in Yogurt Sauce | Indian Curry Recipes

I love mor kulambu. Period. If you are a yogurt lover like me you sure would love it. This mildly spiced tangy gravy tastes super delicious. If you have a blender and some sour yogurt (or not so sour one) you are all set to try this. Any vine vegetable like okra, bottle gourd etc can be added to this. You could also make urad dhal bonda and add to this kulambu. Try this out and enjoy a comforting meal.
Okra - cut into 1/2 inch pieces - 1 cup (I used frozen cut okra)
Besan / Chick pea flour - 2 tbsp
Curd/Thick Greek yogurt - 1 1/2 cups (can use lesser if sour)
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Oil - 1 tbsp
Salt - taste
Make a paste:
Grated Coconut - 1/2 cup
Green chilli - 4
Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
Pepper corns - 1/4 tsp (optional)
Oil - 1 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1/4 tsp
Urad dhal - 1/4 tsp
Asafoetida - 1/4 tsp
Red chilli - 1 - broken
Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a kadai and saute the cut okra until almost cooked. Grind the ingredients under make a paste adding little water. Add the ground paste to the kadai and fry until the raw smell disappears. Mix the besan with 2 cups of water without any lumps and add to the kadai along with turmeric powder and salt. When the mixture starts to boil add the whisked yogurt and let it heat for about 5 mins in the heat. In a small pan heat oil and add the ingredients to temper and pour over the kulambu. Serve hot with rice and a spicy curry.

Sending this awesome kulambu to Serve It - Boiled event happening at my space and Denny's. Also to Sumee's Bon Vivant#9 - Simply Sides; Radhika's Let's Cook - Protein Rich foods; Jagruti's Know your Flours - Besan.
