Cucumber is the one which makes an entry to my home when summer comes. Slicing it into four and sprinkling salt, red chilli powder is my way of eating it. If it is too tender, I eat it as such.

I make cucumber buttermilk often at home during summer and I use only tender cucumbers. When a reader requested to post summer drinks, I prepared this buttermilk last week. But I didn’t have the tender cucumber by time of preparing it. So, I used the cucumber which were about to become fruit. There was no difference in taste, but additionally I ended up in filtering it out to remove seeds as it was not tender. I kept on hold to post this recipe, Since I was not satisfied with the pictures. Badly, I didn’t have any other recipes to post today and this cucumber buttermilk made an entry here.

Basic Information:

Preparation Time: <15 minutes

Cooking Time: Nil

Serves: 2-4 persons

Ingredients:

Cucumber – 1 cup, skin removed and sliced

Plain yogurt / Curd – 2 cups

Cold water – 2-3 cups

Ginger – 2 inch length piece, sliced

Curry leaves – 4 strings, roughly torn

Asafoetida – a big pinch

Salt – to taste

Method:

1) In a deep vessel, mix curd and water. Churn it using whisk / hand blender / Mathu. Keep it aside.

2) Take sliced cucumber and ginger in a mixer / food processor and make a smooth paste. Coarse paste is fine too if you are not able to blend it smooth.

3) Add this to the butter milk and mix well. If you find seeds, then filter it to discard seeds.

4) Add asafoetida, salt and curry leaves. Mix well again.

5) Pour in glasses and serve chill.

Notes:

1) Increase or decrease the water and salt quantity as per your preference.

2) You can also do seasoning for this buttermilk. Since I prepare it often, I skip the seasoning to avoid oil to the healthy drink.

3) If you use tender cucumber(Baby Cucumber), grind it without removing skin and directly mix it with buttermilk and consume. No need to filter it out unless you find seeds.

What will be the effect of this drink…. If consumed At night on body systems? what kind of digestive imbalance it may create for old age? What will be the effect of this drink in monsoon season and winter season?…. Can u guide me with ur wisdom or to some site where I may find answers to these questions.
