Varuthu aracha mor kuzhambu | Poosanikai mor kuzhambu recipe – Traditional Tirunelveli style Mor kuzhambu recipe with full video and step-by-step pictures.

We usually make Mor kuzhambu by soaking little dal and use green chilis for grinding. This is a different style of mor kuzhambu which I learned from my friend Banu. A few days back, during our evening walk, she was telling me that she made Mor kuzhambu and sevai for dinner. She also shared this simple mor kuzhambu recipe, which her mother-in-law makes whenever they make sevai at home.

My amma always make sevai, the one using traditional sevai nazhi, Mor kuzhambu and fried appalam combo. This is one of the most popular combos in Tamil brahmin houses. The mor kuzhambu will be a regular Vendakkai mor kuzhambu. I have also a version of Kalyana Bonda mor kuzhambu from my perimma, my mom’s elder sister. That is yet another super-hit recipe and everyone at home loves it.

I always wanted to try Poosanikai mor kuzhambu, so I added it to this one. We all loved this one with rice. It tasted very flavourful and it is perfect for big gatherings like Navaratri and poojas.
