Lemon Buttermilk | Nimmakaya Majjiga

Lemony Buttermilk
Summers are hot, sweaty & sometimes very dry in India. A refreshing drink that can make you feel good is all you need sometimes. Here is a drink for those hot hot summer days, which is also a favorite drink from my childhood days. This was served in our school to students as the summer starts. Sometimes it use to be accompanied with boiled broken wheat which is not refined. The combination use to be awesome.
Coming to this drink lemony buttermilk, onions, & lemon juice are the good cooling agents for the body. So this drink is best for the hot summer days as it cools your body & keeps you happy. 
Enjoy this refreshing drink!!!
