One the of the best thirst quencher for summer. After you come back from outside the scorching heat this is one drink which gives you good relief to beat the heat.In Kerala, the spiced and salted version is known as smabharam, flavored with ginger, curry leaves and green chilies, it is served as an accompaniment for lunch to help the body digest hot and spicy food.
This is not a thick drink, its very watery and has to be served chill.
At my place we love this any time of the day during summer, especially my daughter she just loves this.
