Neer Moru - Sambaram - Spicy Butter Milk Recipe

Neer Moru recipe
Yet another summer cooler drink perfect for the scorching heat. Neer moru in Tamil or Sambaram in Malayalam is familiar with most households and is a simple healthy drink. A glass of neer moru served after a heavy meal is really comforting and helps in digestion too. Usually i don't temper neer moru, but if want  you can do it. Home made healthy drink to keep away from aerated drinks.

Sambaram Recipe

Neer Moru / Sambaram - Ingredients:
Preparation time: 10 mins | Recipe cuisine: Indian | Category: Drinks

Thick Yogurt -  1 cup
Water - 2 cups
Green chili - 1 (optional)
Ginger - small piece
Coriander leaves - 1 tbsp chopped
Asafoetida - a generous pinch
Jeera/ Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
Lemon juice - 1/2 lemon (optional)

If Tempering:
Oil - 1 tsp
Mustard - 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves - a sprig.

1. Beat the curd well and keep aside.

2. Grind green chili, ginger, jeera, asafoetida, lemon juice and few coriander leaves with little (2 tbsp) curd until coarse.

3. Add the remaining curd and water and beat well with a hand whisk or churn well using traditional 'math' until frothy.

4. If tempering, temper the ingredients under ' to temper' and add to the butter milk.

Garnish with remaining coriander leaves and serve chilled.

Neer Moru

My notes:
  • Neer moru/ Sambaram, as the name calls will be watery and so adjust water depending on the thickness of the yogurt.
  • You can also add few mint leaves while grinding for an additional flavor.
  • You can store and serve them in earthen pot for a naturally chilled drink.
