Dont miss Neera (Nira) when you visit Pune

Come Hot summers & these small boxes selling this beautiful drink spring up in a thousand places in & around Pune..

Neera is basically the unfermented sap of the flower of the Palm tree. It has very short shelf life & if left unrefrigerated can quickly get converted to Palm wine or Tadi.
Its very refreshing & very Healthy ( I can only speak of the unfermented version! )
