pudina chaas recipe – chaas is a regular drink made during summers. most of the times i either make salty chaas or this pudina/mint chaas. along with chaas i also make sweet lassi and mango lassi, sometimes.


both yogurt and mint (pudina) are body coolants and so their combination would double the cooling properties in this traditional drink. mint has many healthy benefits and is also good for detoxification. so you can use mint in variety of recipes like mint rice, mint chutney and pudina paratha recipe.

not only salty chaas is had during summers but also as a part of meals and sometimes before or after meals. there are again many ways of making chaas. the north indians have their own method and the south indians their own.

the chaas is also a street food and in many indian cities you will find vendors selling this spiced buttermilk, especially in the hot summers.

pudina chaas recipe

the buttermilk is made by churning yogurt and water with some spices or herbs. the butter sometimes comes on the surface while churning. you can remove it aside and just serve the buttermilk. if you prefer you can also serve the butter with the chaas. you can either blend or churn the mixture with the traditional indian churner.

in this recipe i have spiced the pudina chaas with some roasted cumin powder and black salt….a cooling and refreshing drink to have during summers. vegans can make the same pudina chaas with cashew yogurt.

if you are looking for more beverages then do check mango lassishikanji – indian lemonade, kokum sherbet, jaljeera, sattu sherbet and aam ka panna.
