Know what is Neera?
Neera is a famous drink in many parts of Telangana. It is a sweet natural extract from Palmyra or Indian date palm trees and it is collected in an earthen pot, which is tied to the tree before sunrise. Neera is non-alcoholic. Neera has to be consumed within three hours of its extraction.
Neera can be stored in the refrigerator and its life span can be increased to four or five days. Neera is similar to coconut water and has the ability to improve the internal cleansing mechanism of the body. The Telangana government is endorsing neera by highlighting its nutritional value.
