Moru Curry (Plant based) – is a traditional South Indian style yoghurt curry made by tempering yoghurt in fragrant onions, curry leaves and turmeric mixture.

This is one of those recipes, which I keep for my lazy days. This Plant based Moru curry is so simple to make and come out of the kitchen in 15 minutes and absolutely delicious.

Being an Indian, dairy is something that is close to my childhood memories and quitting it feels like taking away a part of me that I know.

If you are on my blog site for the first time I want to add a disclaimer that, I am not a vegan or vegetarian. But I try my best to eat more plant-based as I always did growing up. I prefer to eat intuitively.

Been wanting to see if I replaced a recipe which uses dairy with plant based alternative for sometime now. Hence, I used soy yoghurt to make simple plant based moru curry traditionally made with dairy based yoghurt.

How does it taste ? why replace dairy ?

The taste to be 100 % honest, I didn’t find any difference. Nutritionally Also seems they both are rich in protein and calcium and live culture.

Now, Why replace Dairy – Many people have many reasons. Further to what I have said in the beginning of the blog, it is a great option for lactose intolerant people. And may be now there is an alternative to Dairy so why not make a switch where ever possible ?. Seems Healthier for the planet too.
