A thirst quenching refreshing drink in summer is none other than buttermilk. But I love to take buttermilk in all times as it is a natural coolant.I remember buttermilk served in earthern pots at my granny's home.The age old tradition of storing buttermilk in earthern pots has been disappeared with the foray of refrigerators. Storing water/butter milk in earthern pots acquire a heavenly taste which is far better than soft drinks.This traditional drink serves as a good antidote to sunstrokes during summer. Coming to the recipe
- 1 cup curd/yogurt
- 1 1/2 cup water
- 1 tsp cumin powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tblsp lemon juice
- few cilantro leaves
- Mix up the curd and water in a large volumed vessel and churn the curd by a churner.Make sure that the lumps of curd disappear.
- Now add cumin powder,salt ,lemon juice and churn until you get the bubbles of curd.Formation of bubbles depicts that the curd is churned well.
- Chill it in earthen pots , decorate with cilantro and serve cold.
