The most popular Indian drink, chaas recipe or plain chaas recipe which is called plain buttermilk outside India. plain chaas is made from dahi (curd), water and salt. We have added a bit of jeera nad spices to give it an Indian flavour.

Serve chilled chaas on hot summer afternoons and watch your family’s energy levels rise instantly. It is good to note that plain chaas also aids in digestion. However, remember this is more of a day-drink. Chaas is basically a yogurt based drink which cools your system from the inside. Basically plain chaas is very famous in Gujarat and Rajasthan.

Tradionally, chaas is made by churning or mixing yogurt and water with madhani also known as whipper. Chaas is super easy and quick to make. All you need to do is take curd in a bowl and whisk it. This helps in getting a uniform mixture on blending.

We have used homemade curd for the chaas recipe. Add cumin seed powder which uplifts the taste of buttermilk. Add ginger-green chilli paste, black salt and mix everything well. Add cool water and whisk well. Further, we have tempered chaas, you can skip it if you don’t like chaas with tempering. Take oil in a small pan, add cumin seeds, once they crackle add asafoetida and pour over the chaas. Mix well and our buttermilk is ready to be served! You can also garnish it with coriander if you wish to.

As a Gujarati, we prepare and consume chaas with each and every meal. My meal is incomplete without consumption of buttermilk!
