Sambaram Recipe | Kerala Spiced Buttermilk | Moru Vellam | Pacha Moru | Onam Sadya Special

This year I was planning to post the consolidated Onam Sadya recipes a week before the Onam. So that it helps everyone to plan the menu in advance. However, as always I am rushing at the end to post the recipes. I have few more sadya recipes in drafts which should come live as early as possible. At least for the next sadya it will be helpful :). 
Today's post is about a simple and refreshing drink made using buttermilk. Mom used to make this for my dad on weekends. Jany too tasted it once and he liked it. From that day onwards whenever we visited hometown, this will be there for him along with lunch. The ginger and the shallots give a nice flavour to the buttermilk. Do give it a try for this Onam. Check out my collection of Onam Sadya Recipes here. Let us move on to the recipe:   
Yogurt/Curd -  1 Cup
Water - 2 to 3 Cups 
Shallots(small onion) - 3(chopped finely) 
Ginger - 1 inch piece(chopped finely) 
Green Chilli - 2(chopped finely) 
Curry leaves - 1 Sprig(chopped finely)
Salt - as required 
1. Chop the onions, green chilli, ginger and curry leaf finely. In a bowl add the curd/yogurt and the water.
2. Whisk it by adding required salt until it is smooth and lumps free.(You can blend it in your blender/mixer too). Finally, add all the chopped ingredients and mix it once.
Rest it for 10 to 15 mins until the flavours get incorporated to the buttermilk. Pour it into glasses and enjoy.
Points to remember:
  • You can filter all the floating items before serving , since some people might not prefer it while drinking.
  • Adding shallots give nice crunchy feel to the sambaram, so don't skip it.
Warm Regards,
