Mattha (Indian Spiced Yogurt Drink)

Mattha, which is also known as Chaanch is classically made with buttermilk. But it’s also extremely good with yogurt. Don’t confuse yourself with the famous Indian beverage – Lassi as in this case, yogurt is diluted with water making it lighter than Lassi. I like to spice it with fresh ginger, roasted cumin and green chili and flavor it with fresh cilantro. It’s refreshing, healthy and is definitely helping me beat the peak summer heat.


2 cups yogurt
7 cups water
1 inch ginger, freshly grated
2 tablespoon roasted cumin, powdered
1 green chili, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 cup freshly chopped cilantro
salt as per taste
