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!
Now for this recipe, I’ve used Mint Matcha, however, you can even use plain Japanese Matcha.
You can purchase the Mint Matcha here. https://www.theteashelf.com/products/mint-matcha-green-tea
Sharing the recipe below.
- 2 Teaspoons Mint Matcha
- 2 Cups Curd/Yoghurt
- 2.5 Cups Water (cold water if not adding ice)
- 1 Cup Mint Leaves
- 1 Teaspoon Cumin Seeds/ Jeera
- Salt to taste
- Cumin Powder & Mint for garnishing
- You can also add black salt or chaat masala and adjust the salt accordingly
Blend all the ingredients well in a blender and then garnish with cumin powder & mint leaves.
It’s that easy! Enjoy!
Do try this out and share your experience with me.
If you want to make this without Matcha, you can and it would then be Mint Buttermilk. However, you will notice that Matcha makes this drink frothier and richer!
I will see you soon in my next post. Bye!
