Buttermilk with cumin powder | Chas with jeera powder | Jeere thaak

Chaas with jeera powder recipe - Buttermilk or chaas with jeera powder is a refreshing cool drink for all seasons. I churn yogurt to make buttermilk almost everyday. Adding jeera powder to it enhances the flavour and taste as well. Being a predigested form, it is easily digestible, even elderly people may have it. Usually, buttermilk is served during meal. I serve chilled buttermilk during summer and at normal temperature during   rainy season and winter. This is very easy to prepare, healthy and all-time drink. So, try out buttermilk with jeera powder and enjoy.
