Spicy Curry Leaves Flavored Buttermilk

The Best way to beat the summer heat with the handy ingredients at home is buttermilk... I know its really crazy to prepare this in this lovely monsoon here in Kerala but when you have some creamy curd, its really hard to resist... I really want to enjoy the monsoon and at the same time I wanted to use the creamy curd... so thought of preparing this spicy buttermilk... Adding curry leaves and ginger to the buttermilk is a regular flavour for me but I always chop them before adding... Sometimes my mom used to make it more flavorful by tempering them with Mustard seeds and Hing... Am sure most of u would love this.. Today I just made a twist in my regular ones by grinding them... Adding curd to the paste and blending it - gave me a lovely frothy buttermilk... It was awesomely spiced with strong curry leaves flavor.. Was yummy for me and for the first time enjoyed the rain with this rather than the regular chai 'n pakoda.....

Ingredients :

1 1/2 Cup Thick Curd
1/2 inch Ginger
2 Green chillies
Handful of Curry leaves ( approx 1 Cup )
Salt to taste
2 Cups Water
Pinch of Hing ( Perungayam ) Powder

Method :

Add ginger, green chillies, curry leaves, hing and salt to the blender. Grind to fine paste.
Now add curd to the curry leaves paste and blend again for few seconds.
Pour water and blend again.
Serve this creamy spicy buttermilk in tall glass.

Note :

This will be very spicy with strong curryleaf flavor, you can adjust the ingredients according to the taste.
