More kali/More koozh

                                                                    More Kali or More Koozh is a very old traditional recipe I found in Meenakshi Ammal's 'cook and see' book. It is made with rice flour and buttermilk(slightly sour).To enhance the taste and add some spice to it some More milagai(chillies)are added.It is really fast  and easy to make.
    More milagai is nothing but sun-dried Red chillies soaked in sour buttermilk and salt.It is available in all the south Indian supermarkets.When you fry it in oil it becomes crisp and is a great accompaniment for curd rice.



You will Need
  • One cup Raw rice flour
  • One cup Buttermilk
  • Salt to taste
  • Few Curry leaves
  • 6-7 More milagai or Red Chillies
  • A pinch of Asafoetida
  • 2tbs of Gingelly oil
  • One tsp of Mustard seeds
  • One tsp of Urad dal
How to
  • Whisk rice flour,salt and buttermilk into a smooth batter in a pouring consistency(add about two cups of water to the buttermilk).Grease a flat tray or plate with gingelly oil and keep it aside.


  • Heat gingelly oil in a non stick pan and crackle mustard seeds,add urad dal,chillies(red or more milagai),few curry leaves and asafoetida.Fry the chillies till it is dark brown in colour.



  • Slowly pour in the rice flour mixture and keep stirring continously to avoid lumps.


  • Keep stirring till a large lump is formed and  till the mixture is thick.


  • Pour it over the greased plate and level it with a smooth surface like a butter paper or banana leaf.


Let it cool down for 15 minutes and cut into desired shapes.It is easier if you cut it, otherwise you can have it as it is.

Please correct the post. It should have 1:3 (Rice Flour : Water/ Buttermilk). Today I tried and after realized, it should have more water. So used hot water to avoid bubbles.
