Carrot Buttermilk


          Buttermilk, which is nothing but diluted yogurt (curd) is the best cooler for the hot Indian summer and an healthy option too. I try to make some variation to the simple plain buttermilk, this time I have added some carrots to the buttermilk and it came out good. My daughter who is not a big fan of carrots didn't have any problem in having this carrot buttermilk..

Need To Have
  • Grated Carrot - 1/2 cup
  • Green Chilly - 1
  • Grated Ginger - 1 teaspoon
  • Curry Leaves - 15
  • Yogurt (Curd) - 1 cup
  • Water - 1/2 cup
  • Salt - as required
  • Mint Leaves - to garnish


Method
          Grind the carrots, green chilly, grated ginger, curry leaves, if needed add a little curd, grind it very finely. To this add the curd, water and salt, pulse it till everything is mixed well. Serve it chilled, garnished with some mint leaves.

Note
Can leave out the green chilli, if you feel it'll be spicy or add 1/2 of it. 
Add more or less water depending upon the consistency you need it.
