Cucumber Chaas

Cucumber Chaas or Buttermilk is a refreshing indian cooler especially made during summers for its cooling effects. Buttermilk or chaas or Mor, whatever you call it, has many variations in different parts of India, and this is from one such experiment. I love cucumber, i love chaas, and it gives a ‘ what an idea sirjee ‘ effect when i can have a combination of the two. This is one amazing chatakdaar drink you would make pretty often once you have tried it if you are a chaas fan.

Ingredients

  • 1 large tender cucumber, skinned and cut into small peices
  • ½ lt cold buttermilk (i used amul chaas and a little nestle yogurth)
  • 1 inch cube ginger grated
  • 1 pinch black pepper powder
  • 1/2 tsp roasted jeera powder
  • 2 tbsp chopped coriander leaves
  • 1/2 tsp chat masala
  • 1 pinch black salt(optional)
  • few ice cubes

Directions

  1. Coarsely grind the ingredients other than the buttermilk and half the cucumber.
  2. Whip the above ingredients well till the cucumber is crushed well.
  3. Serve in glassed topped with ice cubes and coriander leaves.
