Pacha mulaku aracha Mooru curry

I am extremely sorry for being unable to convert this dishes name into English!! For all Malayalis out there I guess can understand it!! For people from North Indian, its like Kadhi which you make from Curd. But tastes very different. This is a very special and different dish and my husband who likes spice just loves it. Infact I inherited this recipe from him and he inturn had learnt it from one of his friends father!! Must admit - "Men do cook well!!"
The first time my husband made it I was shocked to see the number of green chillies he put in the curry.. But then I realised that the flavour the chillies gave was just superb!!

  • 1 cup - Curd
  • 1/2 cup - Grated coconut
  • 5-6 - Green chillies(depending upon your taste)
  • 2 pinches - Zeera / Zeera powder
  • 2 cloves - Garlic
  • 1/2 tsp - Turmeric powder
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil for tadka
  • 1/2 tsp - Mustard seeds
  • 2 - dry chillies
  • 1 - sprig curry leaf


  • Grind the grated coconut, green chillies, zeera and garlic into a very fine paste. Add required water.
  • Whisk the curd and mix in the coconut paste into the curd.
  • Heat oil in a pan and splutter the mustard seeds, Chillies and curry leaves.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and pour the curd into the pan and stir well.
  • Place the pan on low flame and keep stirring to avoid curdling of the curd for around 2 minutes.
  • Serve with rice.
