Refreshing buttermilk perked up with assorted ingredients like mint leaves and jeera powder, is a drink that will chill you to the core!

It is a traditional cooler in southern India, especially Tamil Nadu, where it is left to cool in earthen pots that add a unique aroma to it.

Herbed buttermilk is not only enjoyed by the family, but also offered to guests in the summer. Some charitable organisations also set up small sheds with pots full of herbed buttermilk, for people who work in the hot sun to refresh themselves with.

Have a glass of this soothing Phudina Chaas before you leave outdoors or as soon as you come back to avoid a sunstroke. As a variant, you can try adding other ingredients like crushed curry leaves, ginger powder and lemon juice to the chaas.

Panha and Muskmelon Drink with Cardamom are other refreshing drinks for summer.

I love chaas all through the year with my lunch, but as you are drinking everyday you get fed up of the regular chaas so I saw this and made the recipe and it is sooo very refreshing and great in taste...

I have always had a minty chaas with chopped mint, but this version of blending the mint before mixing it with curds is more flavourul. It is very pleasing to the stomach and really will avoid sun stroke if had before leaving the house. I will always make minty buttermilk this way only.. tx for the recipe...
