I was never a curd lover.I used to have it with some specific curries for that extra flavour,but otherwise i wouldn't mind skipping it.In fact I developed a taste for curd/curd rice only after coming to Chennai.Instead,I loved having sweet lassi or thaak/more.My father-in-law has come up with so many varieties of thaak.He adds soda water,lime juice and what not.I loooove having thaak on a hot summer day.I make it in bulk and keep in bottles inside the fridge,we drink it instead of water and God isn't it yum-yum.My hubby likes plain thaak,no flavours added.I've always wanted to add green chillies and ginger etc to the thaak,but he says make some seperately for him,plain.So I never ventured in that direction.When I saw Mishmash's Sambharam in her Sadya Vaibhavangal,I was tempted to the core.I decided I am gonna try it somehow.I made it as per the recipe and it came out too good.What I did was,made the sambharam as per the instructions and sieved it before serving it to my hubby.So he got the yummy thaak without anything to chew or according to him to spit out.I am going to make this often this summer..are you??



Curd - 1 cup
Water - 2-3 cups
Green chillies - 2-3 slit lengthwise
Ginger - 1 small piece,peeled and sliced
Curry leaves - 6-7
Salt to taste


Crush green chillies and ginger using a mortar and pestle.I added curry leaves too for the last crush.
Blend the curd in a mixie and add water to it.
To this,add the crushed green chillies,ginger and curry leaves.
Add salt to taste and refrigerate for about 15 minutes.
I sieved the sambharam just before serving it.
Yum-yum sambharam is ready...!!
