Oats Buttermilk

Oats is considered to be the most healthy food. Oats are an excellent an a rich source of nutrients. They help in stabilising blood sugar levels, act as antioxidants, help in lowering cholestrol levels and improve our immune systems. I try to incorporate oats in our diet 2-3 times a week either in the form of idls or dosas or upma. My dear friend Asha Radhakrishna Shenoy, a blogger herself came up with this brilliant idea of adding oats to buttermilk. It was absolutely delicious and had a creamy texture. Very quick and easy to make. Excellent to beat the summer heat.


Buttermilk - 1 glass
Yoghurt(thick curd) - 1 cup
Oats - 3 tsps
Green chilli - 1 no
Ginger - 1" piece
Mint leaves - A handful
Salt - To taste 

  • Soak oats in hot water and allow it to cool.
  • Once it cools, grind to a smooth paste along with chillies, ginger and mint leaves.
  • In another bowl whisk the buttermilk, yoghurt (thick curd) and salt together.
  • Add the oats mixture to this and mix well.
  •  Serve chilled with a mint leaf garnish.
