Spiced Buttermilk-Neer Mor-Sambharam

Summer is here. Stay away from aerated drinks and have a refreshing glass of buttermilk. It is known as Neer mor in Tamil, sambharam in Malayalam and chaas in Hindi. There is only slight variations in the preparation. This is my style of making buttermilk. During summer I prepare this almost everyday and absolutely love it very much. What could be a more healthier way to beat the summer heat!
