Kaichiya Moru

Kaaichiya moru or Moru kaaichiyathu is a simple recipe from Kerala just like Neer mor made in Tamilnadu. Just like the people of Tamil nadu the Keralites also end thier meal with rice and curd or buttermilk. This is a flavourful and aromatic dish. 

Here's the recipe for Kaaichiya Moru or Moru Kaaichiyathu, a traditional Kerala dish:


  • 2 cups Curd (Thick and Creamy)
  • 2 cups Water
  • 6 Shallots (Sambar Onion)
  • 1 inch Ginger
  • 1 Green Chilli
  • 1 tbsp Salt
  • 1 pinch Turmeric Powder
  • 1 tbsp Hing (Asafoetida)
  • 1 tsp Mustard Seeds
  • 1/2 cup Curry Leaves
  • 1/2 cup Coriander Leaves
  • 2 Red Chillies
  • 2 tbsp Coconut Oil


  1. In a large bowl, whisk the curd until smooth. Slowly add water while whisking until it reaches a semi-thick consistency. Set aside.

  2. Heat coconut oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds and let them splutter. Then, add the red chillies, hing, and chopped curry leaves.

  3. Next, add finely chopped shallots, green chilli, and ginger to the pan. Stir well.

  4. Sprinkle turmeric powder and continue to sauté until the shallots turn translucent.

  5. Pour the beaten curd mixture into the pan and stir continuously over medium heat until it becomes warm and starts bubbling. Be careful not to let it boil, as the curd may curdle.

  6. Once warmed through, turn off the heat. Add salt to taste and mix well.

  7. Garnish with finely chopped coriander leaves and cover the pan.

  8. Serve the Kaaichiya Moru as a side dish with rice or enjoy it as a refreshing summer cooler.

This dish is not only delicious but also provides a cooling effect, perfect for hot summer days.
