Methi Leaves Mor Kulambu Recipe - Vendhaya Keerai Mor Kuzhambu Recipe - fenugreek Leaves mor kuzhambu Recipe

I love anything with Fenugreek leaves. Esp with yogurt. I wanted to try this Mor kulambu (Fenugreek in buttermilk) for quite sometime and finally I managed to do it after so long. Mor Kulambu is one of my kids favourite too. I normally make it for weekend lunch. It can go well with steamed white rice or brown rice. If it is left over I normally serve it with idli (Mor kulambu idli).  Mor kulambu with spicy side dish perfect meal for me .. How about for you?
