Smoked Masala Mint Chaas

Buttermilk a flavoured and healthy drink prepared from buttermilk and dry spices. It is mostly served in summers in India for breakfast and lunch. It cools down your body temperature and helps indigestion. You can drink it any season. Mostly we buy buttermilk from the market but here I share with you how to make perfect masala chaas at home.
