Delicious Spiced Buttermilk Recipe

by Rachna

Summer is upon us. And the heat makes me quite crazy. I know that I feel more hot than other people. Natural, summer coolers like chaas or buttermilk are just perfect to provide a nice cooling to the body. They also keep the body hydrated. Mattha, chaas, chanch or spiced buttermilk is quite commonly consumed in India in summers. No, it is not the same as the savoury lassi which is heavier. The one I make is made by diluting churned yoghurt. It really is very simple to make, and you can keep some in the fridge too.

Ingredients
  

  • 1/2 Kg. fresh yoghurt
  • a few springs coriander leaves finely chopped
  • a few springs mint leaves finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. black salt
  • 1 tsp. salt or to taste
  • 1/2 tsp. finely grated ginger
  • 1 green chilli finely grated
  • 1/2 tsp. powdered roasted cumin
  • Chilled water to dilute
  • Ice cubes

Instructions
 

  • Whisk the curd/yoghurt till smooth.
  • Add all the ingredients to the yoghurt.
  • Dilute with water. I prefer my buttermilk thin.
  • Serve immediately. You could also refrigerate and serve later.

Notes

You can make the simplest buttermilk with just cumin powder, salt and black salt added to curd and water.
Some people like to add a tempering of mustard seeds and curry leaves in oil to their buttermilk.
You can play around with ingredients as per taste.

You may keep spiced buttermilk in the fridge and serve it next day as well. It is a great drink that you can also serve with food or just have whenever you feel thirsty or are in a mood of having something refreshing.

This is my all time favorite drink!! Nice recipe, I sometimes add finely grated carrot for a different flavor or a tiny bit (1Tb spn) of juice. But this is helathy and cool. Beautiful picture of Lassi.

I love maththa. And the best part is my nutritionist says it’s great for people looking for weight loss so it works well for me ;-).
