Easy Healthy Buttermilk Drink Or Sambaram

Beat the heat with this amazingly healthy drink…

Buttermilk drink is very popular in India. As summer gets in its peak, people in rural areas depend solely on buttermilk to quench their thirst. Drinking buttermilk will help to lower the body temperature and keeps the body cool and revitalized.

Originally, buttermilk was the liquid left behind after churning butter. Nowadays, you can culture buttermilk and is prepared by adding lactic acid bacteria to the milk, the acid gives the tartness to it.

The name buttermilk is very ironic. Even though it is called buttermilk, there is absolutely no butter in it. And many people are still under the misconception that buttermilk is high in fat and they tend to run away from it. The truth is that it has much lower fat than the regular milk and is healthier than drinking milk. The health benefits of buttermilk are just remarkable, not just as thirst quenchers, it has been considered to be highly effective in weight loss and treating obesity. Incredibly good for your digestive system and protects the body from numerous ailments and diseases. It is also an excellent substitue for all those who are lactose intolerant.

If you haven’t had buttermilk yet, it’s high time you include this amazing dairy product into your diet. It has a tart taste and that’s what makes it taste unique. Many cake, muffin and biscuit recipes call for buttermilk, a healthy alternative to milk.

Most of the people in my hometown prefer a hint of spiciness in their buttermilk and so we add green chilies. Cilantro and curry leaves are added to make it aromatic and grated ginger makes it even more flavorful. l totally love this way of making buttermilk and so haven’t yet bothered to make any great changes.
