Mattha - Spicy Buttermilk

Like Kairi Panha, Mattha- spicy buttermilk is also a regular summer drink in Maharashtra. Previously the traditional menu for Marriages in summer time was Puri, bhaji, Masalebhat, Jalebi and Mattha. After the heavy lunch it is very good for digestion. It is a real refresher.


Curd - 1 cup
Chilled Water - 1,1/2 cups
Roasted Cumin seeds - 1/2 teaspoon
Ginger - 1 inch
Green chili - 1
Chopped coriander for garnishing
Sugar and salt as per taste

Mix curd and water. Beat it and make buttermilk. Grind green chili, ginger and cumin seeds in mixer. Now add the grinded mixture, salt and sugar. Mix well. Garnish it with coriander and serve cold.

This is for Chandrabhaga's "RD FOR SUMMER"
