Puli Kajippu (More Kuzhambu)

"More Kuzhambu" is a popular South Indian dish prepared with buttermilk/curd. Here is a recipe of Udupi style More Kuzhambu called "Puli Kajippu". This is a very light dish and served with rice, papad and any spicy poriyal. It feels very refreshing to have this on a hot day.

Ingredients :

1 cup grated coconut
1 tablespoon poha
2 green chillies
2 cups curd/plain yoghurt/buttermilk
1/2 kg malabar cucumber
1 teaspoon oil
1 teaspoon methi seeds
1 teaspoon mustard seeds
10 to 12 curry leaves

Boil the vegetables and green chillies in enough water.

Soak poha for a few minutes and grind with coconut and curd.

Grind to a smooth consistency.

Add this mixture to the vegetables. Add more curds or water according to the consistency you prefer. Mix well and bring to a boil on a slow flame. (Switch off immediately when it comes to a boil).  Keep aside.

Heat oil and add mustard seeds. When they start crackling, add methi seeds, red chillies and fry till it turns brown. Add curry leaves now and switch off the gas.

Pour this on the Kajipu/Kuzhambu. 

Serve hot with rice or idlis.
