Mint Matcha Buttermilk / Matcha Chaas/Chaach Recipe

Summers are the best time to have Indian buttermilk or Chaas! This is nothing but diluted yoghurt with some spices. It’s very easy to make & is the perfect drink to cool off during hot days.

Moreover, it’s very good for digestion & can be had as a mid-day snack. Buttermilk had as a mid-day snack can also make you feel full, keeping cravings at bay, especially if you are on a weight loss diet.

This goes well with most Indian meals as well!

This time I’ve tried something different. I had a feeling that Matcha would go really well with buttermilk, and hence, Mint Matcha Buttermilk!
