Mum’s wonderful, wonderful Buttermilk

The eternal go-to during Indian summers. There are so many varieties and recipes, but the one you are used to is the only one that hits all the right spots !

For 2 glasses :

  • 3 tbsp thick yoghurt, whizzed in a blender
  • Separately, give 3 shallots, 1 green chili and some fresh coriander a quick buzz in a blender to break them up and mix them up, but not too finely
  • Salt
  • Water

Mix the lot together. Make a jug and stick it in the fridge !

Garnish with fresh mint leaves.

Option : Add a bit of ginger and a few curry leaves while blending the shallot mixture. Or even a lemon leaf … (from your garden or Asian supermarkets).

Pam’s Beetroot Salad

Had this @ Pam’s on a hot summer afternoon, at lunch, and it was lovely.

I normally dislike beetroots, but these half boiled ones retained a hefty crunch.

  • Beetroot, parboiled, chopped fine
  • 1/2 to 1 big onion, chopped fine
  • 1 tomato, chopped fine

  • dressing – salt, pepper & lemon juice
  • chopped coriander to garnish

Toss all together.
