I have had my moto g for a while now and I am quite tempted to root it. But then having an unlocked bootloader would not allow me to receive any Ota updates if I am not wrong. Is there any way to receive updates with an unlocked bootloader because once I unlock my bootloader, I am not going to relock it again..

You will get OTA updates in rooted phone and you can Install it if you have stock recovery... You can't install OTA update If you have custom recovery like cwm or twrp...

So that means before updating I need to revert back to the stock recovery before updating.Also can I download the entire Asian stock firmware and then flash only the recovery using adb?Thanks for your help.

Flashing recvery wont work, you need t go back to full stock rom , update it, and do flash custom recoery and root it.. I tried long back flashing stock recovery and update, but that didnt work for me...
