Servings 2


  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 cup water
  • ½ cup fresh coriander chopped
  • ½ -1 clove garlic peeled
  • 8 curry leaves
  • 1 small green chilli, chopped optional
  • ¼ tsp salt


  • Blend together the yogurt and water with a hand whisk. Add the salt and mix well.
  • Grind the coriander, curry leaves, garlic and chilli into a paste using a food processor.
  • Add it to the yogurt mixture. Mix well.
  • Add some ice cubes into two tall glasses.
  • Pour the chaas over the ice cubes and serve.
  • You can prepare the chaas and leave it in the fridge till its cold.


  • Try out the mint chilli garlic variety instead of the coriander.
  • I like to make extra coriander, garlic, curry leaves and chilli paste and store it in the freezer in a zip lock bag, patted down. Whenever I want to add it to the chaas, I snap the required amount and add it.
  • You can add more water if you like a thinner yogurt drink.
