Mattha (Spiced Buttermilk )


Come  Summer and you can really feel the heat of the season. Here in Mumbai we have already started having juices, cold salads, coconut water  and watery juicy fruits to beat the heat. There are lots of aerated drinks and desserts but what works best for our system is the natural coolers.

One such natural cooler being the buttermilk . It is a probiotic and helps to reduce the acidity levels. It is also lower in fat than normal milk and a good source of calcium and potassium.

Mattha or Spiced buttermilk is prepared by adding certain spices to add to the taste and well as to aid digestion.

Cumin seeds and ginger help in digestion whereas rock salt contains many natural salts good for our body.



Ingredients :

1 cup .......................thick sour curd
1 and 1/2 tsp................rock salt
1 tsp...........................cumin seeds ( roasted and crushed )
1 .........................small green chilly (very finely chopped)
1 /2 tsp.................ginger ( finely grated )
1 tbsp.................coriander leaves (finely chopped)
4 cups .................chilled water






Method :

Add water to curds and churn it properly.
Add all the other ingredients and churn once again.
Serve chilled .
