Buttermilk Rasam

Buttermilk is lower in fat than regular milk, because the fat has been removed to make butter. It is also high in potassium, vitamin B12, calcium, and riboflavin as well as a good source of phosphorus. Those with digestive problems are often advised to drink buttermilk rather than milk, as it is more quickly digested. Buttermilk has more lactic acid than skim milk. One cup of buttermilk has 99 calories and 2.2 grams of fat, whereas whole milk has 157 calories and 8.9 grams of fat.Buttermilk will last up to two weeks due to its high acidity level, although it is best the first week. Once opened, it should be used within a week for drinking purposes, but it will be fine for baking often even after the expiration date. It is slightly thicker in texture than regular milk but not as heavy as cream. It takes one gallon of milk to yield one-half pint of true buttermilk... Buttermilk(moor) rasam very easiest rasam...can prepare within a short period..different rasam n tastiest one....

1 cup Yoghurt (low fat)/ Buttermilk
1/4 tsp Turmeric powder
1tsp Rasam powder
1 tsp Mustard seeds

4 nos Curry leaves
2 tbsp Coriander leaves chopped
2 tsp Oil

Buttermilk rasam is pretty new to me though I know milk can be added to rasam in place of the dal water. The rasam looks good.

yours posts are so full of health information, so inspiring. I love rasams, but I'm so afraid of making them myself. It has been ages that i made any and i think it never was like i had had before in India at my friends' places from the south.
yours is tempting me to try it again.
