The most common drink in many households during Summer is Buttermilk which helps to keep you hydrated.It also helps to combat acidity and has various other benefits. Its takes max 10 mins to prepare this yummy and delicious drink. I have added Jal jeera and fresh coriander to enhance the taste .Jal jeera aids in digestion.Made with cool, watered down curd, this drink is perfect to soothe the stomach. As you drink it the cool buttermilk tends to wash down the spices and calms an irritated stomach lining
As a part of 40th #Foodiemonday #bloghop theme of #Summercoolers i decided to make this humble drink as my contribution.
