Kadi which is very famous dish in West India and North India, also made with some variation in South India also, but they call it with different name More Kuzhamu i.e., samber with butter milk. I had experienced both the taste and both dishes have different taste and procedure. I like both dish a lot.

More Kuzhambu is mostly made in Tamil Nadu and Kerala and at my in laws house this is to be considered as festival food. So this is how we make at our house:-

More Kuzhambu (South Indian Kadi)

Preparation time: 5 minutes (Approximately)

Cooking time: 15 minutes (Approximately)

Serving: 4-6 persons


Curd-1 ½ cups

Grated Coconut-6-8 tabs

Bengal gram Dal-3 tabs

Fenugreek seeds- 2 tsp

Oil-2 tsp                    

Split black gram dal- 1 tsp

Mustard seeds- 1 tsp

Dry red chillies-2

Curry leaves- few

Solid asafoetida- small piece

Vegetables- 1 ½ cup cut in cubes and small pieces (you can use white pumpkin, lady finger, capsicum, brinjal and whatever you like)
