Pooshanikai Mor Kulambu | Pumpkin Yogurt Gravy!

Mor Kulambu is my mom's favourite gravy in South Indian cuisine and you know many recipes are learnt from Mom. All recipes will be extraordinary when mom prepares for us with her motherly love. I am dedicating to her for Mother's Day.

Pooshanikai/White/Grey Pumpkin - 1/2 kg
Curds - 1 cup
Fresh grated coconut - 1 cup
Green chillies - 2nos(As per your taste)
Rice - 1/2 tspn

Oil - 1 tspn
Mustard - 1/2 tspn
Fenugreek seeds - a pinch
Dry red chilli - 1no
Curry leaves - few

Preparation Method
Cut pumpkin into medium size dices. Cook them with little water , salt until soft.
Grind fresh grated coconut, green chilli, rice and little water to a smooth paste.
MIx this in the cooked pumpkin and boil till raw smell goes.
Now add salt and off the stove.
Season it with the above mentioned ingredients under "Seasoning"
Once its cool add curds and mix well.

Pooshinikai Mor Kulambu is ready to serve. Serve with hot rice.

Notes - Some people mix curds while cooking itself. But it may curdle due to heat.

This recipe is going to Veggie/Fruit a month by Priya hosted by Sowjanya.
