Refreshing buttermilk perked up with assorted ingredients like mint leaves and jeera powder, is a drink that will chill you to the core! It is a traditional cooler in southern India, especially Tamil Nadu, where it is left to cool in earthen pots that add a unique aroma to it. Herbed buttermilk is not only enjoyed by the family, but also offered to guests in the summer. Some charitable organisations also set up small sheds with pots full of herbed buttermilk, for people who work in the hot sun to refresh themselves with. Have a glass of this soothing Phudina Chaas before you leave outdoors or as soon as you come back to avoid a sunstroke. As a variant, you can try adding other ingredients like crushed curry leaves, ginger powder and lemon juice to the chaas.
