Moru Kachiyadhu

Summer is already here and numerous recipes are out there which would help us to bare this heat. One such recipe is this "moru kachiyadhu". This is a traditional and very simple recipe made with ingredients which are very easily available at home. This simple recipe helps to cool body during the hot summer months.

Curd - 1 cup
Water - 3 cup
Oil - 15 grams
mustard - 3 grams
ginger - 5 grams
garlic - 5 grams
shallots - 10 grams
green chillies - 3 grams
turmeric powder - 3 grams
salt - to taste
curry leaves - few


  • Beat the curd with water and make it into a thin buttermilk. We can also beat the curd in a mixer.
  • Add salt and turmeric powder, mix well and keep aside.
  • Finely chop the green chillies, ginger, garlic and shallots.
  • Heat oil in a kadai. Add the mustard seeds. Once the mustard splutters add the chopped green chillies, ginger, garlic and shallots as well as the curry leaves.
  • Fry for a few minutes and add the buttermilk and stir for about 2-3 minutes. 
  • Keep stirring and don't allow to boil otherwise the buttermilk will curdle.
  • Remove from fire and serve with rice or kanji.
