Spicy buttermilk recipe easy to make at home

Spicy buttermilk recipe: It is basically a spicy and healthy yogurt-based drink that is usually served during high heat to bring down the body temperature and give a soothing effect. It is usually served after lunch or dinner as it helps in digestion and reduces the heat of the spice.

Chaas, traditionally, is thin white water obtained after churning butter with curd. Later it is spiced with mint, coriander leaves, ginger, and asafoetida before serving. However, these days, the milk is processed and all the cream is extracted before it is distributed, so chaas is prepared by diluting the curd.

I drink chaas with a pinch of salt and asafoetida after my meal. Though my husband makes this spicy, minty flavored chaas now and then, I absolutely adore it. He tries to mix and match with some ingredients, but I have used an exhaustive list of ingredients for Masala Chaas, also called ‘Chhach’ in Hindi.

Apart from this, he also tried to churn homemade curd with a hand blender to prepare the chaas but was unsuccessful. Since then he dropped that idea and sticks to just blending yogurt.

Furthermore, I would like to give some important tips and advice for a complete and delicious spicy buttermilk recipe.

Firstly, I have added lemon juice to introduce the sour taste and balance the spice level in this recipe. If your curd is already sour in taste then you can skip it.

Second, I have added cumin seed seasoning to give this drink a smoky flavor. However, it is optional and if you do not do it then you can skip it completely.

Lastly, I would recommend using an earthen pot to store the chaas as it helps it stay cool.
