Sundaikaai Morekuzhambu/Turkey Berry in spiced yogurt Sauce/Neer Sundaikaai morekuzhambu

By Priya Srinivasan - I Camp in My Kitchen - Thursday, January 26, 2017

The last one for this week is this delicious Morekuzhambu with sundaikaai. This uses the neer sundaikaai, which i posted yesterday. It takes flat 10 minutes to make this recipe, if u have the Neer Sundaikaai ready.
The berries doesn't have that bitter taste, maybe due the brine, when sauteed in hot oil along with basic spices,they give beautiful aroma and taste to the final recipe. Try it and let me know how you liked it.
