Spiced buttermilk

I thought anyone could do with some flavours in their buttermilk. You can get a similar one from the stores if it is available in your country but here’s something that can cool your system really well anytime of the day, any day of the year!

I haven’t made this in a long time and none of the photographs on the internet were doing any justice to this so all I can do is add a photograph the next time I make it.


  • 250 grams curds (if you don’t have readymade buttermilk)
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 inch piece of ginger
  • 2 small twigs of coriander (optional)
  • Chaat masala (optional)
  • 1 small twig curry leaves
  • 2 Dried red chillies
  • Mustard seeds
  • Oil
  • Water for consistency

Serves: 2 (1 if devoured)

Preparation time: 15 minutes


  1. With the use of a blender (or if you want to go like the old times a hand blender) mix water and the curd till it forms a good consistency with no curdles, keep aside.
  2. Make a fine dry paste of the ginger or use ginger powder
  3. Chop coriander into fine pieces
  4. Add 2 & 3 to the plain buttermilk along with salt and chaat masala
  5. In a frying pan, add a little oil
  6. Wait for it to heat, add the mustard seeds, curry leaves and Dried red chillies and let it splutter
  7. Add to the buttermilk and serve

*chaat masala: spiced masala available in stored for salads and such drinks

Your spiced buttermilk delight is ready. Serve it with some nice hot delicacy and you are good to go for the next few hours or just have it all by itself and you will ask or be asked for more!

Here’s what buttermilk can do for you.
