Moru Curry

Moru stands for butter milk in Malayalam and as the name suggests this is a simple and easy to make yogurt recipe. It goes very well with rice. In fact, this curry tastes even better when made a day ahead! It is a staple in any Kerala household. It is similar to the kadhi served with rice in other parts of India, the only difference being this is more sour in taste and do not use gramflour (besan) to thicken the consistency.
