kamban koozh (making of bajra/pearl millet flour for kambu koozh)It’s a real challenge to cope up with scorching summer heat waves!usually the severity will begin little later but this time it’s too much of heat here that we are experiencing now itself.Any way we have to continue with our chores we can’t just stop everything and sit idle inside our houses.In Tamil Nadu the Amman festivals(goddess) celebrated are really grand!but there must be a reason behind this festivity.The reason may be complex but its natural and inevitable kind of celebrations that I really adore and enjoy.The main part of the festivity is the “koozh”(summer drink)kamban koozh (making of bajra/pearl millet flour for kambu koozh)that is must served drink here.I have already shared the “Ragi koozh” or aadi koozh” recipe and this summer its yet another summer cooler drink something very similar to ragi koozh! its “kamban koozh /kambu koozh”. Kambu by itself is a perfect millet with excellent cooling properties that’s the reason kambu as a “koozh” is consumed during these summer months to cool our body!its very effective filling drink.Usually they soak the millet grind and make it. Additionally fermented balls of kambu is finally mixed up with buttermilk but to make the job easy I have made an instant powder so that we can make whenever necessary.Even with this powder you can ferment the cooked batter and mix up with buttermilk the next day.I love to add onions and greenchillies to mix up with this koozh and have it chilled.

Notes

For me I love this koozh to be cool so I always refrigerate before serving. Keep on stirring when on flame otherwise it will form lumps. Even mor-milaga and pickle will be great with this koozh. This is a instant handy powder I have made for the summer months so we can prepare it in no time. I have powdered it but if you like it to be coarse you can make it that way too it will be tasty.
