How to make tadkewali chaas at home

  1. In a deep bowl, take 2 cups of fresh curds and whisk it. This helps in getting a uniform mixture on blending. We have used homemade curd for the chaas recipe. Many people face problems like milk does not set or the curd turns sour and sticky, so you can refer our recipe video on how to make curd at home to get thick and creamy fresh homemade curd.
  2. Add the cumin seeds powder. Lightly roasting the cumin seeds before making the powder uplifts the taste.
  3. Add the ginger-green chilli paste. You can make spicy buttermilk by adding a few more ingredients.
  4. Add the black salt and salt in the deep bowl. You can skip the sanchal if you don’t have it.
  5. Mix everything very well.
  6. Add 4 cups of chilled water and whisk well. Keep aside. If not chilled water then use ice cubes to make chilled buttermilk. Chaas is a popular summer cooler in India. 
  7. For the tempering of chaas, heat the oil in a small pan. Giving a tadka to the chaas is an age-old practice. If you don’t like it then skip doing it. 
  8. Once the oil is hot, add the cumin seeds.
  9. When the seeds crackle, add the asafetida. Ginger, curry leaves, fennel are some other popular ingredients added to the tadka to enhance the taste of the chaas.
  10. Pour the tempering over the buttermilk.
  11. Mix well.
  12. Serve plain chaas chilled.  Garnish with coriander.
