Masala Chaas / Masala Taak / Mattha / Masala Buttermilk

DSC_3669_edited-1

           Masala taak/chaas is very easy to make, very soothing, cooling drink. This is typical Maharashtrian drink  which can be served in Maharashtrian homes after heavy spicy meal. Its enjoyed during summer. In summer days, a bowl of fresh masala taak at the end part of our lunch or dinner. This is very flavored drink with different spices like Asafetida, salt,sugar, ginger, cilantro and cumin powder.

           Masala taak brings lot of childhood memories. I remember, daily a milkman come early in the morning on his cycle to deliver the regular milk and me or my mom take a fresh milk in wide steel pot. This very exciting, but now a days “’Pune’’ is well develop city and all the things can be home deliver within a time. We hard to see this milkman and their milk kettles Sad smile

           Whenever I went for India trip, I always prefer my dad’s fav restaurant ‘’Durvankur’’ thali menu. They serve delicious Maharashtrian meal.  In Pune there are lots of hotels serving Maharashtrian, Guajarati, Rajasthani thali meals with unlimited masala taak. It helps to cool your body and digest a spicy meal.

           Hope,I am not boring you Nyah-Nyah lets move on to this cool drink which can be prepared quickly & can be refrigerate to enjoy whenever you want !!
