Masala chaas | North Indian flavored Buttermilk | Summer Special Recipes | Yogurt Recipes | Summer Coolers | Easy Summer Drinks


Masala chaas is the flavored North Indian yogurt drink. It is made up of yogurt, coriander leaves, roasted cumin and salt as the main ingredients. There are many variations in this preparation but I personally feel this is the tastier version. The chaas is very good for our health especially in summer days. It cools our body and maintains the body heat in the correct level. I have given a final touch by adding the chat masala and as I liked the spiciness more, added a pinch of red chilli flakes before serving. You can view all the summer cooling drinks here.
