Healthy Ekpani/Brahmi/Ondelaga Thambuli

Brahmi leaves are known to rejuvenate the mind, enhance memory, improve concentration, and to directly influence the quality of consciousness.
This "Brahmi Thambuli" is a best way to beat the heat as it is prepared using buttermilk as one of the main ingredient.

 Undoubtedly buttermilk considered as the best summer soother, buttermilk or chaanch or chaas, is a wonder drink that goes beyond quenching your thirst and refreshing you. Being a by-product of the process of churning cream into butter, low calorie, most of the beneficial properties associated with milk are retained in buttermilk too.Buttermilk is a natural probiotic, which means that it provides the “gut friendly” bacteria that aid in digestion. It also helps to reduce frequent heartburn, and regulates the acidity that usually follows a spicy meal.


  1. 1/4 cup Brahmi leaves
  2. 1/4 cup Grated coconut
  3. 1 Cup Sour butter milk
  4. 3-4 Green chillies
  5. 1/2 tsp Jeera
  6. 1 inch piece Ginger
  7. Salt to taste


  • Wash brahmi leaves under running water and drain well.
  • Now grind all the ingredients to smooth paste using little buttermilk at a time.
  • Serve chilled along with rice right in the beginning of lunch.
  • If you wish to drink this thambuli then dilute it with some more buttermilk and mix it well and serve.
