Buttermilk in general, is a great drink to have especially when the weather gets warm .It not only helps cool the body, but has benefits of being a low fat drink .It even aids digestion and improves immunity. Today’s recipe is a twist to the usual drink by adding some flavorful seasonings to make it taste even better.We all know that traditionally buttermilk is obtained from the whey , remnants of churned butter .You could even make butter milk by adding a teaspoon of acid, like vinegar or lemon juice to a cup of milk.
However for this recipe, I used equal ratio of low fat yogurt and water to avoid sourness. The addition of pearl onions is optional. However a crunchy bite of the finely chopped raw pearl onions with a sip, only makes it taste even better.This can be had by itself or even mixed with a bowl of rice .This is a great recipe to try especially in the hot summers.Do read on for the full recipe and hope you will try it out. Happy weekend all!
