To avoid dehydration tender coconuts are the best intake. We can have water melon also.
We have to consider our ethnic 'Kanji vellam' in this season as an energy booster and a nourishing drink. We can have this with plain salt or we can add some butter milk and salt to it. We have to add kanji and payar(green gram) to our daily menu to cool our body.
Our ethnic drinks include malli vellam and uluva vellam. These two have cooling effects. The ingredients and popularity of drinks vary according to region.
