Mint Chaas | Masala Chaas | Savory Buttermilk

Chaas is nothing but flavored buttermilk.During summer, buttermilk is quite popular across India and made in different flavors across the region. In Tamilnadu, it's called as Neer moor  and it's quite different from North Indian version of savory buttermilk, here we do basic tempering with oil,mustard & curry leaves and add into the buttermilk and i'm big fan of that tempered buttermilk.
But in North India,they add cumin powder into buttermilk to enhance the flavor. I love both version of buttermilk because of their unique flavor.Here in this recipe, i added few mint leaves into the buttermilk and it was super hit, the mild mint flavor in this buttermilk is so yummy and also wanting it more.As buttermilk is a natural coolant, having it during this summer helps you to keep hydrated and cool. Now let's see the recipe.
