Curd Curry or Moru Curry is one of the popular dishes of Kerala cuisine. This is a very simple curry and a real comfort food for all. This goes very well with plain rice and with some papad for sides. While I was working few years back, my colleague who was from Kerala used to get this for lunch at least once a week. That was the first time I tasted this curry. Though the first look was not very pleasing, the taste was delectable. The mild spices in this curry make it yummy and delicious. So why not give it try?
