*If you don’t have buttermilk , You can make by mixing 2 cups of Curd with One cup of water .*

*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*.

Adding finely shredded shallots , Curry leaves and tiny bits of green chili  at the time of serving increases flavor
