Keralan Morkulambu(Buttermilk Gravy)

I am here with another Onam recipe...

This is a quick gravy if you are in a hurry...This hardly took me few minutes to make..So this recipe falls in my section “Curry in a Hurry” easily...

Morkulambu is a very mild gravy so you need some heavy sidedish to go along with it...My Puli Inchi Dish will be perfect with this...If you didn’t check it till now..Please do it by clicking here..

I have few more onam recipes to post...I have some yummy Keralan Potato Fry,Keralan Rasam and Vendaikai Kichadi...Will post it in the coming days so wait for it...
