Method of making Spiced Buttermilk / Masala chaas
1)So for this recipe you need ½ cup of curd, I usually use home made full fat curd but you also use store bought.
2)To get full fat curd, make sure when you are boiling the milk you keep stirring it so the malai or the cream doesn’t separate from the milk and then make curd out of that milk.
3)Now simply add this curd in a blender along with 5-6 ice cubes, 1 cup of cold water, followed by 1 tbsp of cilantro which is dhania, 1 tbsp of mint leaves which is pudina, ½ chopped green chilli, ¼ tsp of roasted jeera powder, salt as per your taste and ½ tsp of ginger pieces.
3)and now blend until you everything becomes one with each other.
4)once blended pour and remember to pour from a distance so you get the foam on top of the glass and now last but not least add the black salt which is kala namak and stir
5) the reason we didn’t add Black Salt before is that it would make the drink a little dark in color so always add black salt towards the end of the dish and now decorated it with mint leaves and serve chilled.
