A spiced yogurt based drink, masala chaas is usually the customary end to Indian meals… Keeps the digestive system cooled after a spicy meal! 🙂

I  have become so used to gulping down a glass of masala chaas everyday that I don’t even see it as a “recipe”. To me, it is simply a substitute to water. It never occurred to me to pen it down for this website. And honestly, it is just so…..  easy – for the lack of an easier word! 🙂

All you need is plain yogurt and a few additional ingredients to spice up the drink. You can make plain yogurt at home or use store bought yogurt too. Chaas (some people call it chaach / mor) is just diluted yogurt. How thick / diluted the drink needs to be is up to you.

So really, I’m only showing you a way to make it. This is not, and won’t be the first or only variation of a Chaas. Each individual spruces up the recipe to make a drink they can enjoy. You can use this as a reference to make your own Masala Chaas!
