What can I use as a substitute for buttermilk in baking? I live in Bombay and it's hard to come by

You can use whole milk and add about a teaspoon of lemon juice or vinegar to sour it.

If you feel like making buttermilk - and butter: authentic buttermilk comes from whipping cream until it separates, so you'll have homemade butter and homemade buttermilk.

Most commercial buttermilk is just skim milk with thickening agents in it. True buttermilk is low in fat and much different. If this brand is near you, I've tried it and it's wonderful!

Thanks for answers! I was confused because in India we make masala buttermilk by combining milk and plan yoghurt, wasn't sure if I could use that. I am going to try darksideofthespoon's technique as well. All these techniques are easy and accessible! Thanks much.
