Come summer, you can see several ‘Neer Mor Pandhals’ dotting the landscape of Tamil Nadu. These are basically thatched roof sheds under which pots of Mor are stored in earthen pots and served free of cost to one and all, to beat the unrelenting summer heat.

Mor is nothing but spiced buttermilk, which has a refreshing flavour and instant cooling effect! The peppy flavours of ginger, green chillies and curry leaves really kindle your appetite and make you down a glass or two more than you intend to!

This refreshing drink can be made with less salt because the other ingredients enhance the flavour despite the use of less salt.

You can also try other low-salt recipes like Bulgur Wheat Pongaly or One Meal Soup .

The spice of this recipe compensates for the less salt. The chopped curry leaves gives a very fresh taste and aroma to this buttermilk.
