Mor Kuzhambu is always my favorite. Two weeks before I bought raw papaya thinking to prepare some curry or fry but I don't have guts to prepare thinking how the taste would come. My mom was scolding that I might waste the vegetable. So when I decided to prepare mor kuzhambu I used this veggie and to my surprise it came out good. I was happy I finished the raw papaya finally. 

You can check my kuzhambu varieties here. Some are below

Yummy Mor kuzhambu using Raw Papaya is ready

1. I made the cubes little big and because of that, I feel, the inner part of the papaya cube does not taste that much good. So cut into small or medium sized cubes or cut in length wise.
2. When you leave the buttermilk to cook for longer time, some times, it might get curdled.
3. You can try the mor kuzhambu with different vegetables like pumpkin, paruppu urundai, yam and ladies finger. For ladies finger, fry in oil and then add to the kuzhambu in the final stage.
