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.
Curd - 2 cups (Thick and Creamy)
Water - 2 cups
Shallots (Sambar Onion) - 6 nos

Curry leaves - 1/2 cup
Coriander leaves - 1/2 cup
Red chilly - 2 nos

Take the curd in a big bowl and whisk it well. Add water slowly and keep whisking till it gels well and becomes a semi thick consistency.
Heat the coconut oil in a pan, add mustard seeds and let it splutter. Add the methi seeds, red chillies, chop the curry leaves and add it to the oil. To this add finely chopped shallots, green chillies and chopped ginger, turmeric powder and stir it well. Add the beaten curd to it and stir it in medium flame, till it gets warm and starts bubbling up. Dont boil it as the curd will curdle.
Switch off the flame, add salt and mix well. Add finely chopped coriander leaves and keep it covered.
This can be served as a summer cooler too.
