Chaas; Savory, spiced buttermilk

Author Notes: Chaas is a post-meal, savory, lightly spiced, cool drink that rounds up a spicy, hot Gujarati meal. Almost watery, chaas is particularly welcomed in the hot, tropical climate of western Indian state of Gujarat.Annada Rathi


Serves 2

  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin powder
  • Chopped cilantro for garnish (optional)
  1. Take yogurt in a bowl. Add water. Stir well with a whisk.
  2. Add salt, cumin powder and cilantro. Whisk once again. Generally the chaas found in Gujarat is almost watery, which bodes well for the climate. You can adjust the water content depending on your preference.
  3. Serve in a glass with a cube of ice.
