Spruced up Buttermilk...

Summer heat has started creeping up here. I know it is just the beginning of March and my comment is too early to say this. But it is so very true... days are so very hot. The only good thing is that nights are better off when compared. Huff... its so very tough to fight these sunny and over-hot days. 

It has been a good practice in our homes to have chilled buttermilk to keep our bodies cool. My mil always makes this for us whenever she is around and we are so addicted to this drink in summers. It really keeps our body cool from inside. The best way to get refreshed when you are already losing all your body water through sweat. 

We prefer to have this before going out in the hot sun. It helps our energy cells sustain freshness for a long time without getting dehydrated. There are various recipes for buttermilk and here's an addition to it :)

Serves... 2 ppl 
Serve option... Chilled with ice cubes

This is what u'll need....

Curd - 1 cup
Pearl onions - 5
Coriander leaves - 10-22 strands
Curry leaves - a palmful
Salt to taste
Ice cubes - optional

Here is the stir....
  • Peel pearl onions and stash them into a blender jar
  • Wash and rinse curry leaves, coriander and toss them into the blender
  • Blend it for a few seconds so that it gets crushed coarsely
  • Now add curd and salt and give it a good blend in the mixer till everything is mixed smooth and even
  • Add required amount of water to make up to your glasses and blend one last time
  • Serve chilled with ice-cubes. Garnish with coriander leaves to win a refreshing taste

  • The amount of onions, coriander and curry leaves will vary as per taste
  • Grind the greens fine if you just like the flavor and not the grainy texture

  1. I love to see this post here. Remember my good old childhood days when my grandmother used to make it for us. Now almost forgot about all this. When I saw this i was so happy to make it and remember her. Thanks
