Summers are in full swing in many parts of the world. We need to keep ourselves hydrated all the time. Summers call for variety of healthy drinks to hydrate ourselves. Buttermilk is one of the popular drinks in many south indian households. Karpooravalli neer mor /Carom leaf buttermilk is one of the most addictive summer quintessential at my place. We are all aware of the benefits of Omam leaf / Ajwain leaf /Carom Leaf. It Improves digestion . We dry the leaves thoroughly in sunlight and powder it. We store it and use when necessary as I don’t have access to fresh leaves all the time. My Mom helps me with us as she has a beautiful kitchen garden at her place.
Benefits of Karpooravalli / Carom Leaf :
- Helps to Cure Stomach ache
- It has many medicinal properties and helps cure stomach ailments.

- Used in Recipes to make chutney , dip , juices and fritters.
- Always best when used in moderation.

I have a perennial Omam leaf plant in the balcony and sure to try this very delicious karporavalli buttermilk !
Interesting, I use carrom seeds in buttermilk but never tried with milk. I grow a lot of Borage, which is similar to carrom, I would try it with it.
Carom leaves are good for digestion. Buttermilk made with them must be so flavourful too. Perfect summer drink.
I’m a big fan of Neer More, buttermilk that we make with green chillies, coriander and curry leaves. Adding karpooravalli leaves to buttermilk sounds very interesting. I will surely try to make this – we have a plant in our surroundings.
I have planted Karpporvalli and it is good to have recipes that use it. ALso, nothing better in summer than ner moor.
The adddition of ajwain leaves must be lending a good flavour it. I have a plant, I can easily do it.
Using omam in buttermilk is really interesting. I use omam and jeera powder to my neer mor. Have some fresh omam leaves growing in my compound, I shall use some and make this delicious neer mor

Who doesn’t love a chilled glass of buttermilk. Each home has a different and unique way of making this simple beverage. I loved the addition of ajwain leaves here. Never used them in buttermilk. Something new for me to try.
Carom leaf buttermilk is new to me. It will definitely give a wonderful flavour. Sounds so refreshing healthy and delicious. Loved the use of dry green chilli powder in the buttermilk.
Can I use fresh karpooravalli for this buttermilk? I do have a plant that I sometimes pinch the leaves to use in black tea… The buttermilk sounds perfect for a hot afternoon.
