Chutney for Buttermilk ~ Keep it Ready-Kitchen Essentials

If Oggarane is one of the essentials of South Indian kitchen, buttermilk is something we all love to drink after a major meal. Buttermilk is thinned down plain 'no-flavor' yogurt. A little chutney is added to this thinned down yogurt and allowed to stand for 10 mins and served chilled :)


Make 2-3 tbsp of this chutney and it makes atleast 12 glasses of  buttermilk which serves my purpose for a week. You can store this chutney in your refrigerator in a airtight container for a week.

You need the following for making chutney :
Ginger : 4" big piece
Green Chillies : 2 (1 big and 1 tiny ;)
Garlic : 1 small pod
Cumin : 1 tbsp
Coriander leaves : 2 tbsp (chopped)
salt : 1 tsp
Grind everything to coarse paste and store in a container.
Method :
Add 1 tsp of this chutney and little salt to 1 tbsp of plain 'no-flavor' thick yogurt. Add required amount of water and stir well.
Add oggarane and serve chilled or without chilling it. You can garnish with chopped coriander leaves.

I was wondering what on earth does chutney for buttermilk mean... when I saw the title of your post... and after reading it, I think that is a brilliant idea.
It is good to have the mix on hand and relish it everytime with buttermilk. Cool.
I am bookmarking it.

In winter and rainy season ,i generally don't have buttermilk ,coz i enjoy it cool and anything cold except in summer season gives me sore throat .Then i once had this gingered cumin flavored buttermilk at one hillstation restaurant and amazingly even after drinking few glasses at stretch(yes i actually slurped 4)i was not sneezing and coughing as usual after drinking buttermilk.Ginger worked wonders.isnt it? never heard of chutney but except garlic i too add rest of things now to my glass of delicious drink
