CUCUMBER CHAAS

Cucumber Chaas or Buttermilk is a refreshing indian cooler especially made during summers for its cooling effects. Buttermilk or chaas or , whatever you call it, has many variations in different parts of India, and this is from one such experiment. I love cucumber, i love chaas, and it gives a ‘ what an idea sirjee ‘ effect when i can have a combination of the two. This is one amazing chatakdaar drink you would make pretty often once you have tried it if you are a chaas fan.

This cucumber chaas is quick and easy to make and is ideal to cool down your body and soul in no time. It can also be a unique addition to the list of beverages you arrange for your next house party.
