Chaach – spiced buttermilk

In my last post I had cribbed about the sweltering heat in Singapore so yesterday I skipped lunch and prepared Chaach for myself ,chaach also known as namkin lassi or spiced up buttermilk is a cooling drink unique for its digestive properties and health benefits. This drink can be taken anytime with the meal or after the meal or as I did instead of the meal .  

Recipe Name – Chaach – Indian spiced buttermilk
Curd one cup
Water three cup
Icecubes 4 to 5
One fourth tsp black salt
Pinch of red chili powder
Pinch of dried mint powder
In a mixing bowl whisk the curd with water , transfer in a glass add ice cubes ,sprinkle red chili , black salt and dried mint powder .
Serve chilled. Satiated and Refreshed that's how I felt after having this .

For the dried mint powder sun dry the fresh mint leaves for 3 to 4 days, pluck the dried up leaves from the stalk and make a coarse powder by running the leaves in a blender. Transfer the content in a clean and dry jar .
That's all friends for now ,will catch up with you all soon,
Take care and happy blogging.
