Morukaachiyathu/Pulisseri/yogurt curry


½ Onion, cut into small pieces
2 or 3 Green chile, cut long
¼ tsp. Turmeric powder
½ tsp. chile powder
¼ tsp. methi (uluva/fenugreek) powder
¼ tsp. cumin (jeerakam) powder
1 tsp oil
salt as per taste
1 tsp mustard seeds
10- 12 curry leaves
1 zuchini squash/chayote squash/cucumber/green mango/green apple (grannysmith), cut into pieces (you can use half of pineapple cut into cubes for the sweeter version)
2 c. Yogurt (wholemilk one is better), whipped well.


Heat oil, fry mustard seeds, then add onion, green chile and stir for a while. Then add curry leaves (optional), and then all the powders and salt. Stir for a few seconds, then add the veg. pieces, and a cup of water. Cover it and cook. When cooked, take it off the stove, and after a while (when cooled down a bit) add the yogurt to it, stir well. And it is ready! Note: (You can use ripe mango instead of squash/apple if you like. Also, you can add coriander leaves if you like.)
