Spicy Warm Buttermilk

Ingredients to make Spicy Warm Buttermilk

  • 100 ml yogurt
  • 100 ml water
  • 200 ml coconut milk
  • 2 dry red chillies
  • 6-8 curry leaves
  • 1" lemongrass
  • 1/2 tsp ghee
  • 1/2 tsp mustard seeds
  • 1/4 tsp chilli powder
  • 1/4 tsp pepper powder
  • Small pinch of asafoetida/hing
  • salt to taste

How to make Spicy Warm Buttermilk

  1. Whisk the yogurt and water together and set aside.
  2. Heat the ghee in a pan, add the mustard seeds, hing and red chillies, let the seeds begin to sputter, add the washed and dried curry leaves and lemongrass.
  3. Pour in the coconut milk, season with red chilli powder and pepper, add salt.
  4. Let it come to a simmer, blend in the yogurt and water mix. Bring it to a boil, then cool to drinking temperature and serve warm.

My Tip:

If you don't like the asian curry flavour of lemongrass, you can substitute it with ginger.
