Masala Buttermilk or Masala Chaas is the best coolant during summer. We make this very often during the summer. It is not only body coolant but also healthy since we are adding the herbs, ginger, hing along with buttermilk. That too adding herbs raw gives complete nutrition from the herb.
In the below video, you can see 2 variations in buttermilk. One is spiced buttermilk and the other one in masala buttermilk. In masala buttermilk version, we grind a few simple ingredients and mix it with buttermilk. This is the best way to keep our body cool rather than having aerated drinks.
Neer mor can also be consumed with rice. Mix neer mor with steam rice that tastes great with some pickle. Consuming any form of buttermilk is healthy and a body coolant too. I prefer storing them in an earthen pot, so it helps us to keep the buttermilk cool for a longer time, and also it retains the taste rather than storing it in the fridge.
People started having squash or other drinks which have preservatives, but this homemade buttermilk is healthy and also no artificial flavouring, colour or sugar. I add rock salt which adds extra flavor to the buttermilk.
