Spinach Moru Curry Recipe / Keerai Mor Kulambu Recipe

Spinach Moru Curry Recipe / Keerai Mor Kulambu Recipe

Mor Kulambu or Moru curry is one of our family’s favorite and at least once in a week we use to have this Mor kulambu. In my earlier days, I use to prepare this moru curry with coconut and later when heard the version of mor kulambu without coconut and tried it, my family loves it to the core. So, this moru curry without coconut has been a default in our weekly menu. Few days back when I had very few spinaches left in my refrigerator along with some grated coconut, as I was planning for a holiday, decided to finish it off and so prepared this moru curry with coconut and spinach.

Fish Curry / Sankara Meen Kulambu in MannPaanai

Fish Curry / Sankara Meen Kulambu in MannPaanai

Already I have shared a red snapper fish curry without coconut and now this time it’s going to be with freshly grounded coconut. This curry tastes completely different than the one with coconut, also I have prepared it in earthen ware, because when it’s fish curry it would be prepared in earthen ware most commonly, as it tastes delicious. Also, commonly there is a term called “Meenkulambum MaanPanaiyum” means fish curry and earthen ware. Let me share the recipe, I forgot take step by step pictures and so kindly check out our video…
