Masala Mor

Project: Summer 30

Day #22: 

Drink – Masala Mor

masala mor


I remember my grandma quoting a saying very often, ‘Neer suruki, mor peruki, nei urukki saapida…’ (Meaning: water boiled, buttermilk diluted, ghee melted is how they should be consumed). Buttermilk is a daily mandate at our households; be it summer or winter, in a tropical climate like ours it is very important to keep us hydrated always. The best thing about buttermilk is that it has more water and salt as well that body requires to replenish  completely after dehydration because we lose them both especially in summers. Masala mor is just spiced buttermilk to make it more delightful.

Kural #22:

துறந்தார் பெருமை துணைக்கூறின் வையத்து
இறந்தாரை எண்ணிக்கொண் டற்று.


Measuring the eminence of those who renounced their desires is like counting the people that died on earth.
