Mor Kali

Mor Kali or Mor Koozh is a taditional recipe made with buttermilk and rice flour. This dish is made commonly in Tamil Brahmin houses. I was bored making regular tiffin items for the dinner.  This time I wished to make something new as well as traditional one.  Within no minutes I called my mom and started pestering her to give some idea. She asked me to make Mor Kali which is traditional as well as something different. I got the recipe from my amma and made it for the dinner. Wow!!! It took me back to my childhood days. My amma and both paatis’ used to make this when we were young. You can eat this dish as it is without any side dish. And healthy and easier tiffin option.
