A buttermilk or curd based curry of South India which  is a dish that is served with rice and a few people relish it for dishes like Chappati or Adai too. It is infact a comfort food. The dish is tangy and spicy and is also a bit sour in taste based on the buttermilk used. The taste of the morkozhambu differs with the different veggies or ingredients added to it. 

It is always better to add the buttermilk or curd at the end and just boil it for a min or two and switch the stove lest the dish could curdle. The entire dish needs to be cooked in slow flame so that it doesnot settle at the bottom of the pan.
