Soda Chaas | Sparkling Spiced Yogurt Drink

We've seen that lately traditional recipes have been getting a modern twist. People like to experiment with "old school" recipes that have passed down for generations.

One such recipe is masala chaas. Chaas is an Indian beverage, consumed the whole year round in India by millions. It is a refreshing drink made based of yogurt or buttermilk with added spices such as cumin seeds or herbs such as mint. I have altered the recipe by adding sparkling water.

You will need :-
  • 1 cup mild plain yogurt
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 cup sparkling water or plain soda water
  • Salt per taste
  • 1 tsp roasted cumin seeds crushed
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped mint and coriander
  • 1/4 tsp cumin and coriander powder ( dhana jeera powder )

Beat plain yogurt and water.
Add all the masala, salt and herbs. Leave ayside.
When you are ready to serve take 1/4 beaten yogurt mixture in a glass and add 3/4 sparkling water.
Add ice cubes and serve immediately.
