Ayurvedic Buttermilk From Yogurt

Why Buttermilk:

First of all this is very different from what we call buttermilk in the west. This recipe is often used to restore the beneficial bacteria - a unique and difficult task. It is very good for assimilation and provides an excellent source of crucial digestive microbes.

Ingredients for 1 serving:

  • 1/4 cup fresh cold yogurt (make yourself whenever possible) 
  • 3/4 cup purified cold water (cold is important) 
  • 1/4 tsp cumin powder 
  • 1/4 tsp coriander leaf (also called cilantro) 
  • 1 pinch of cooling soma salt


  1. Mix yogurt by itself on low for 3-5 minutes minimum 
  2. Then add cold water to yogurt 
  3. Mix again on low for 3-5 minutes 
  4. Collect and discard the fatty foam on top 
  5. Repeat mixing and remove further fatty foam if yogurt still seems thick or solid white (should appear watery but cloudy in color when finished). 
  6. Add the 3 spices and stir by hand briefly just enough to mix the spices evenly. 
  7. Serve at room temperature. 
  8. Sip between bites at Lunch.
