All we can do is to pray for the humanity who suffered. May Allah give them the patience to bear the loss and give them His glad tidings… Aameen…
Off to today’s recipe… this is basically a summer thirst quencher that I am posting at the wrong time, as far as the weather is concerned here! But still, I make this at times for a biriyani lunch like a washdown, basically! Sambaaram is a spiced buttermilk drink that is famous in many parts of Kerala. Not much known towards the side I come from though, I have had this from restaurants whenever we have been on road trips back home. Even though I wouldn’t say I love yogurt, anytime I would land up with sanbaaram, I would wipe it clean. It basically calms down all the heat that you feel on a hot day. There are two ways of having it like I mentioned in the notes, either you gulp it down and chew the bites, or blitz and have it like a juice. I am posting the first version here and this is what I like to have. When I decide to blitz it, I will post that one as well… hehe…
1 1/2 cup yogurt
1 1/2 cup water
1 tsp ginger paste
6-8 curry leaves
2 tbsp coriander leaves
1 green chilly
Salt to taste
Finely chop the leaves and chilly. Combine all the ingredients and whisk till smooth. Allow to rest for 10-15 minutes. Serve and enjoy.
You can even blitz all the ingredients and strain them to serve. I prefer having the bites while everybody else prefers the juiced version!
