When I first went vegan, this was one of the first beverage I learnt to make. Its so easy to make (especially if you’re using coconut milk) and so damn impressive, because it is simply delicious and people just cant tell that it is free of dairy.
If you are watching you fat intake, then avoid coconut milk and use the non dairy yogurt for your buttermilk instead.
- 1 cup non dairy yogurt or 2 cups of fresh coconut milk
- 1/2 medium cucumber
- 1/2 inch grated ginger
- 1/2 inch green chilli
- 1/4 tsp roasted cumin powder
- salt and lemon juice to taste.
- Fresh coriander to garnish
- Ice cubes
(If using yogurt, use 1-1.5 cups of water depending on how thin or thick you want the chaas).
Grate the cucumber. Grind the ginger and green chilli along with 2 tbsp of yogurt/coconut milk. Add the rest of the yogurt/coconut milk till well blended. Add the grated cucumber water/ice, cumin powder, salt and lemon juice to taste. Garnish with fresh coriander and serve chilled.
