Pudina Chaas ~ Summer Coolers

Buttermilk is an excellent digestive as well as a body cooler drink. I just crave to have this drink while driving back home through the scorching heat, sweating through the hot sunny afternoon. And upon reaching home many a times it's just gulping down a glass full of this drink [diluted with water and some salt added to it] even before taking my lunchFinding a bottle of this drink at home and to grab it at any time of the day instead of aerated drinks is indeed a blessing. 

This cool and revitalizing drink can also be flavoured with spices such as cumin powder, ginger, and herbs as mint leaves, coriander leaves, etc that makes it super tasty and the perfect appetizer. I love all the variations and pudina chaas is my favourite. Since it's  summer time making this chaas would be better and simpler way to treat yourself ! 

The quantity of ingredients used is usually a rough estimate and and you may vary it as per your preference.


1 and 1/2 cup yogurt or 3 cups buttermilk
1/2 cup pudina leaves, washed and cleaned
1 tsp chopped ginger
1 green chili, chopped
salt to taste
2 tbsp coriander leaves [optional], washed and cleaned


Combine all the ingredients in a blender and blend till smooth. If using yogurt, add chilled water [ Since we get thick yogurt here I use equal quantity of water sometimes more to make a watery chaas] and blend it once again. Pour in glasses and garnish with fresh mint leaves. Refreshing Chaas is ready. Serve it chilled.

Happy Cooking!
