This is how i make mor kuzhambu:
pooshanikkai or okra
curd or ****ermilk(in thick consistency)- 2glasses
urud dal- 1 tsp
thoor dal-1 tsp
grated coconut-3 tsps
mustard seeds and turmeric powder.
Soak thoor dal in water for atleast 1 hour.
If you are using pooshanikkai cut them into small square pieces and cook them in water with a bit of turmeric powder
If you are using okra cut them in lengthy pieces and deep fry them in oil.
In a heated kadai fry urud dal and coconut seperately until it turns red.
Grind the fried urud dal,coconut,soaked thoor dal and green chillies to a fine paste.
In a vessel pour the curds or ****er milk .smash the curds with little amount of water(do not add more water). Add salt,turmeric powder,vegetables and the ground paste to the curds and boil them on stove(low flame) for about 10 minutes.
Season with curry leaves,mustard seeds and red chillies.
(i have seen people grinding rice along with coconut and dals)

If you add more water you can prepare more sambar.

Sour curd (pulicha moor) can be used for this. It gives a good tangy taste

Try this way-soak 1 tsp channa dhal and thoor dhal each in water and grind them with little coconut, ginger, mustard, dhaniya, green chillies, jeera and for additional taste, can add tomato(my mom used to do). Keep them aside. Make the curd into diluted stage, add turmeric and salt, mix the paste well. Heat, add the boiled vegetables and let it boil, once the raw smell is gone, switch it off. Do the seasoning in gingelly oil or coconut oil with mustard, fenugreek seeds & curry leaves. Garnish with coriander leaves.

how do you prepare sambhar from ground up without using sambhar powder? I'm asking this coz I'm afraid I might end up in a situation where I'm out of the powder and I still want to make something that is recognizable as sambhar.

If you have Dhania seeds, Red Chillies and a little Jeera (Not a must), you can make Sambar.
If you can lay your hands on Curry leaves its still better.Only one more thing you will need in spices is Onions or Shallots.
Powder up Dhania and Red chillies after frying for about three to four minutes in or without oil.If you add any dhall , its a bonus.Powder when cold.Now add this makeshift sambar powder to your Thoram parappu(COOKED).
Make sambar as usual by adding Puli, salt etc.and if you are desperate to get authentic sambar powder and if you are in the USA, I can send you some.
However I suggest you to visit my website to learn How to make sambar powder as under,
Please look under POWDERS.
