Neer Moru is one of the traditional drink and is one of my favorite drink since childhood. Butter milk is the liquid form of curd either in thick or creamy consistency. But Neer Moru is the liquid and prepared after churning out the butter formed. As per the name Neer (watery) moru (buttermilk) the drink tastes awesome only when it is watery. This is the most common drink in South India especially in Summer. Substitute the aerated drinks with a healthy drink and make the body cool and keep hydrated.


Curd – 1/2 cup
Water – 1 litre
Crystal salt – 1 tsp
Ginger – 1/2 inch
Curry leaves -1 stick
Coriander leaves – few
Hing/ Asafoetida – a pinch
Green chilli – 1


 1. Add the curd and 1 cup of water in a vessel and churn for about 3 minutes until you get a thick butter milk consistency.
 2. Again add about 1 cup of water and churn well to remove any creamy layers formed.
 3. Crush the curry leaves using your fingers and set aside. You can also chop and add.
 4. Chop the chilli, coriander leaves and crush the ginger,
 5. Add to the churned butter milk. Also add salt.
 6. Add a pinch of Asafoetida.
 7. Now add remaining water and churn again using a churner.
 8. Transfer to a drinking glass and the drink is ready to serve.
