Mor means buttermilk and Kulambu means curry in tamil. Chow Chow mor kulambu recipe is a yummy, quick to make, traditional south Indian curry made with yogurt (curd) and coconut. Here in this recipe, I used chow chow (chayote squash), you can use use any vegetables of your choice like okra (vendakkai), bottle gourd (sorakkai), vellai possanikkai (ash gourd) or vadai (urad dal vada, masala vada or vazhaipoo vadai). This post was in my draft for long time, actually my mom made this mor kulambu when I was in my home last year. More kuzhambhu tastes great with rice and potato masiyal or potato fry or beans usili or eggplant fry.
