Kaddu Lassi (Pumpkin Buttermilk)


kaddu lassi
I am a Punjabi and love curd. Lassi is widely used in Punjabi homes. I love the salty, spiced lassi. But yes, I do not like its sweet version. Well, that's my choice. Hubby loves the sweeter one. Everyone has a choice!

After trying out kaddu raita with inspiration from Tanvee Sharda's recipe, I used the leftover to make buttermilk. I try to increase the intake of curd in our daily diet, especially in the summer season. Curd keeps our bodies cool! I love it !



Ingredients
1/2 cup- pumpkin or kaddu raita or pumpkin puree
2 cups of water
2 tbsp- curd
black salt
pinch of sugar or little more if you want it sweeter
salt
mint leaves
ginger grated -1/2 tsp
Roasted jeera powder
Roasted flax meal

Pumpkin Buttermilk Procedure

  1. If you are using kaddu puree, then you need extra curd. Take 1/2 cup curd.
  2. Take all the ingredients and add them to the processor, except water.
  3. Give them a churn once.
  4. Then add water and churn once again.
  5. Check for spices.
  6. Sprinkle little flax meal and roasted jeera powder and enjoy this cool, refreshing summer drink.

Can we use the soaked water for millets? Does millet need to be soaked?

Do millets contain anti-nutrients? Yes, they do. In fact, all whole grains, including oats, contain phytates, which bind to minerals and make their absorption difficult for the body. Soaking is the first step toward reducing anti-nutrients from millets. Soak for at least 6-8 hours to make digestion easier. Discard the soaked water and then proceed to the next step of cooking. Remove foam from top to reduce gassy elements from millets.  How long should millet be soaked before cooking? Soaking the millets overnight is a safe practice. Soaking breaks down the phytic acid in millets or for that matter grains and nuts. Phytic acid hinders the absorption of minerals and nutrients in food, including calcium, iron, and zinc. How? Phytates bind to minerals and nutrients and make their absorption difficult in the gut. Your tummy finds it tough to digest millets in that case. So soaking millets and draining off that soaked water makes it easier on your tummy.  Are millets safe for thyroid? Does
