Masala Chaas – Buttermilk Recipe


The hot summer days have arrived and here’s the perfect drink to cool down with Chaas. This is a yogurt based drink that is flavored up with different masalas (spices) variations and served chilled. It’s not just a cooling drink it also helps with the digestive system. Chaas is made all year around in many households and served with meals and is also served as a beverage. This drink is an all time favorite in my house, during the summer months we make this on a daily base and enjoy it during the afternoon days.

This recipes is super simple and easy to make especially for the bachelors who have no idea of what masala to us and how. Masala chaas can be made with many different variation like adding black salt or roasted cumin (jeera) seed coarsely grinded. Some make it with whole jeera, kari patta (curry leaves) and hing (Asafoetida) tarka also called Vaghareli Chaas in Gujarati. I’ve keep this recipe very simple which I’ve made using my blender. The key ingredients to this recipe is the coarsely ground jeera and kari patta which completely enhances the flavors to the next level.

Chaas also goes well with many other dishes like… mix vegetable pulao, bhaji pulao, khichdi, masala khichdi. I will be posting very soon recipes on all of the above delicious rice recipes…keep following me.
