Buttermilk (South-Indian style)

Well, the CC has been working a lot from home, and he's been making this in large quantities to have some with lunch, etc.

It's amazingly simple.

Buttermilk in India doesn't refer to the same thing as here. It's basically 1 part yogurt blended with 2/3-1 part water (depends on whether you like it thick or watery.)

You need to good "Greek-style" yogurt for this. Most of the yogurt in this country sucks, and if the CC may say so in the pop-vernacular, "it sucks ass!"

The difference in this recipe is the addition of mustard seeds, and curry leaves.


Fry some mustard seeds, add the curry leaves and fry for a bit. Toss it in with the yogurt, and water in the blender, and blend it.

It'll last as long as yogurt lasts so you can make quite a bit of it, and store it.
