Zucchini Morkozhambu /Zucchini in Buttermilk Gravy

Yes I prepared Mor Kuzhambu with Zucchini. Today i could not find any vegetables for making a curry or sambhar in my Fridge. I had a Zucchini, which i bought to try soup with it. Finally Morkuzhambu took over the Soup and it did'nt fail to impress us. I got to have a pie of inspiration from Priya, I really wonder, how she plays on ideas with Zucchini. Zucchini Vadai, and Chocolate Bread with Zucchini are must to look for in her blog. Thanks Priya for the Award.

  1. One of the tradional recipes that I like is Mor Kuzhambu. Adding zucchinis are a great touch.

  2. I use them a lot in my cooking. I did not know that you get Zucchinis in India. Looks too delicious. I made Mor kuzhambu today too.

  3. I have zucchini coming out of my ears-- I planted too many of them. I need such great recipes-- I guess I could try it with vegan yogurt. My husband Desi loves Mor Kuzhambu.
