IMG_1798This seemingly innocuous looking glass contains one of the most refreshing and tasty drinks you can find. Mattha is a spiced buttermilk drink made of yoghurt, water, ginger, fresh coriander and salt. It’s a great way to refresh yourself on a hot day or to soothe your stomach after a spicy meal.

Mattha is similar to Chaas, the North Indian buttermilk drink although the spices used are slightly different.
