Shev Kurmure and Lassi

Shev Kurmure and Lassi

When I was a kid many evenings me and my neighbor in Fort, Preeti would spend time together in her balcony. Her mother, Kaki used to supply us with eatables. Mumra - sev or Shev Kurmure was a timepass snack. One day I was just chilling out and had no particular plan for the weekend when I made this Shev Kurmure and Lassi.

I remember we used eat one grain at a time to make it last long and one of the things we did was poke each grain of puffed rice with 1 grain of shev ! What a timepass...Any one looking for killing time can try it.

For Lassi take 1 cup thick curd in a glass add sugar or substitute as much as you permit yourself. Beat it with a hand blender once for 2 mins. Then add as much water as you want, depending on thickness of your choice. Beat it again for another 2 mins. Serve chilled or add ice cubes on top.

  2. As kids, we would be given peanuts and jaggery--we'd spend hours sandwiching tiny pinches of melting-in-the-heat jaggery between the peanuts and then eat them one at a time! I love how your posts always trigger off an old memory--thank you!

  6. Chaitrali in this post I have just combined shev and kurmure. Jhaal muri is more complex. It is a bhel with a sprinkling of mustard oil you get in Kolkata.
