Neer mor

Neer Mor | neer moru| நீர் மோர் in Tamil | Spiced buttermilk, a South Indian summer drink, a recipe with full video. We prepare neer mor recipe, spiced buttermilk, usually during Rama Navami along with Kosumalli and Panagam. My mom makes this almost every day during the summer season. It is a very healthy drink and also a body coolant too.

Later I got exposed to North Indian style Masala chaas, sweet lassi and started making that at home. I have posted Vazhaithandu mor, Millet cucumber lassi recipe. Check out these healthy recipes and stay hydrated in the summer.
