*If you like spice in your Moru you may add green chili while blending, i don’t suggest this as this can causing burning effect and you wont be able to enjoy , its better to finely slice and add at the end , so you will get the flavor.*
*Shallots increases the flavor of moru and don’t add Big onions If in case you don’t have shallots , big onions may that will spoil your drink*.
