In this hot summer, you need something to beat the heat. Chaas is perfect beverage in hot weather. All the ingredients are up to taste; you can change the quantity as per liking. This is how we like it and I am sharing with you.

In Gujarat, if wedding or ring ceremony functions are in summer then, Masala Chaas is always there in the menu.

In my family, we make Chaas every single day, no matter its summer or winter. We drink it after the lunch/dinner. Each member of my family drinks at least 2 glasses of Chaas after or during the meal.

Sometimes I make vaghareli Chaas (Buttermilk with Tempering/Tadka) or sometimes with plain chaas without spices.

Chaas will help to cool your body heat. So this is the best drink for hot Indian summer. Here in USA summer has started but it is not at its peak. Whenever you come home from outside’s boiling heat, and then drink this Masala Chaas. It will give you very refreshing and cooling feelings. Apart from cooling, it also helps in easy digestion.
