ABOUT Ash gourd coconut Curry RECIPE

Kumbala moru curry is a simple side dish from the South Indian cuisine. Kumbala also known as Ash Gourd, winter melon and moru means curd so basically this dish is prepared using curd and coconut. For me, boiled rice and any coconut gravy is Comfort food. To make this dish, we just have to make a Coconut masala with the few spices add curd and then some tempering.
