Mor Kuzumbu

There are days i want to have full meal ( Not the one pot meal) and I am lazy to cook. This Kozumbu comes handy during such times.Can be made using raw banana or white pumpkin or tomatoes or even onions. 🙂 If you have the ingredients handy can be made in flat 15 minutes including cooking time.


Here goes the recipe:

Serves: 3


Buttermilk (Sour) : 2 cups.

Tomato  : 1 chopped. (See notes.)

Oil: 1 tbsp (coconut oil recommended)

Turmeric powder: 1 tsp

Curry Leaves: A spring.

Mustard seeds: 1 tsp.

Salt to taste

Jaggery: 1 small piece (optional but recommended)

To grind:

Coconut grated or torn in pieces: 3/4th cup

Green chillies: 2 or more depending on spice preferred.


  1. Heat oil in a pan, add mustard seeds.
  2. Grind the Coconut and green chillies into a paste adding little buttermilk.
  3. When it crackles, add curry leaves and tomatoes.
  4. When tomatoes turn mushy, add turmeric powder, and butter milk.
  5.  Add the coconut chili paste.Bring it to boil.
  6. Add the jaggery and let it simmer for few minutes in low flame.
  7. Serve hot with rice, any curry or just potato chips.


Tomato can be replaced by onions, raw bananas or white pumpkin, use either to these 1/2 cup. Cook them till tender (The bananas or pumpkin if using). Onions just need to be sauteed.

Using a little sour buttermilk will bring out the flavors better. Make them a little extra they taste more better the next day. 🙂

I served it with Katrikai/ Brinjal curry
