Summer is here. Stay away from aerated drinks and have a refreshing glass of buttermilk. It is known as Neer mor in Tamil, sambharam in Malayalam and chaas in Hindi. There is only slight variations in the preparation. This is my style of making buttermilk. During summer I prepare this almost everyday and absolutely love it very much. What could be a more healthier way to beat the summer heat!
Chop coriander leaves, chilli and tender curry leaves very finely so that it does not get stuck in the throat.
Grate or chop ginger very finely.
Blend curd and water. You can use the traditional mattu also.
Add finely chopped green chilli, ginger, coriander leaves, curry leaves, roasted cumin powder and salt required.
Squeeze juice of half a lemon. Mix well and serve chilled.
1.You can season it with mustard seeds and hing if you prefer. For South Indian version, it is same as the above except for the cumin powder.
2.You can add 1/4 tsp of chat masala powder to make masala chaas. Recipe same as above.
3.Instead of chopping it finely, you can add crushed ginger and green chilli.
Roasted Cumin Powder – Roast cumin powder in a pan without oil. Powder it.
