Summer has started and many parts of India it is in peak. To beat the heat, we need to hydrate ourself with loads of water, cucumber and fresh fruits. Buttermilk | Neer mor is a best summer cooler and to make it more tasty i have already posted Neermor and Masala chaas recipe here. Last month  when i went  to India, my sister after making morkootu with vazhaithandu, made this vazhaithandu mor for all of us. We had this after a heavy breakfast, and it tasted very nice. Later after coming back here, i tried this few times and i can say i am addicted to this. You could never know that Vazhaithandu is added in this butter milk. Enjoy summer with this healthy drink.
