Carefully add Buttermilk and mix everything together.
Allow Moru Kachiyathu / Seasoned Buttermilk to just get warm, make sure it doesn’t boil, otherwise buttermilk will get curdled.
Serve Moru Kachiyathu / Seasoned Buttermilk warm or room temperature with Rice.
To make Buttermilk, mix some water to yogurt or curd. For this recipe I used 2cup Yogurt and added 1/2cup of Water.
If you like thin Buttermilk, add water according to that.
In this recipe you can add Shallots, it’s according to personal taste.
Always make sure to taste and adjust Salt. If needed add more Hing/Asafoetida.
