Morkuzhambu is an item you can find in the south indian menu in any festival/ marriage or any auspicious occasion. This is a no-tamarind recipe. You can use any vegetable of ur choice like potato, drumstick, ladiesfinger, carrot, cluster beans. Traditionally it is yellow in color. Mine is brown bcos i have used red chillies. If you want yellow, replace red chillies with green chillies. You can refrigerate this upto 3 days and use. Enjoy! Note : Once you add curd, do not boil vigorously.
