To make buttermilk:

  • 1 cup yogurt (dahi or curd or thayir)
  • salt to taste
  • 2 cups water

For the tempering:

  • 2 tbsp oil (any edible oil)
  • 1/2 tsp mustard seeds
  • 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
  • 3 slit green chillies
  • 3 dried red chillies
  • 5 curry leaves
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped onions
  • 1/4 tsp ginger garlic paste (or use crushed ginger)
  • 1/4 tsp cumin powder (jeera powder)
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder (haldi powder)
  • 2 tbsp freshly chopped coriander leaves


Making of the buttermilk quickly:

  • Take a blending jar and choose a big size jar.
  • Add a cup of yogurt into it, add salt according to taste.
  • Add 2 cups of water, cover the lid tightly and blend well without lumps.
  • This method is the quickest way to make chaas or moru or buttermilk.
  • If not this way, then churn the curd with a manual beater by adding water gradually.

Tempering to the curry:

  • Take a wok, add oil and heat it.
  • Add mustard seeds, cumin seeds and allow them to splutter.
  • Add slit green chilies, dried red chilies, saute for few seconds.
  • Add the fresh curry leaves and let them crackle.
  • Add the finely chopped onions and cook them until they turn soft.
  • Add ginger garlic paste or use crushed ginger and saute for few seconds.
  • Add the cumin powder and turmeric powder, mix well.
  • Cook for few seconds.
  • Add the buttermilk and make sure the flame is on low heat while adding buttermilk.
  • Add chopped coriander leaves.
  • Switch off the flame after stirring well.
  • Serve hot with rice, chuney and pickle and pappadams.


  • Do not boil the buttermilk as the curry splits and the moru gets curdled.
  • Just give the curry a slight heat.
  • To make the curry with coconut, just add a teaspoon of freshly grated coconut powder while making the buttermilk.
