Sambaram Recipe / Spiced Buttermilk / Morum Vellam / Kerala Pacha Moru

Sambaram Recipe
Sambaram / Spiced Buttermilk is a refreshing summer drink, a slightly diifferent take to the neer more.Sambaram is also served in Onam Sadya so thought to share this.I clicked sambaram long back using my digicam when I was in chennai but then completely forgot about it and now I dont even remember why I didn't post it.

I wanted to wind up onam sadya recipes with parippu curry as last post but the new brown plate hubby got for me itched my hands and the very next day I clicked this sambaram using that plate :) I think there is time and reason for everything and in my case its the props which tempts me to try new recipes.

My Notes:

  • If you want you can strain it and drink, the flavours will  still be there.
  • I used buttermilk which we get after taking butter so it was thick.The consistency can be adjusted to your liking,
  • Spice level can be adjusted according to your preference.
